We offer CHEAP (from R60 p/p) airport (Jhb's OR Tambo) and train/bus station (Johannesburg) pick-ups.
If you have rented a car at the airport, take the R21 (BOKSBURG). Exit the highway and continue straight until you reach the T-junction (+/-9.5km from leaving the airport). Turn left and at the first set of traffic lights turn right. Travel 2.8km, and we are on the left-hand side of the road with a bright orange and blue wall.

Travelling up from Cape Town, you need to get on the N12 (WITBANK) highway on the outskirts of Johannesburg and then get on to the N17 Toll Road (ZAR3 Toll fee). Take the Rondebult/Mapleton off-ramp.
