Getting There

From Johannesburg: Turn right at Harrismith onto the Alternative Road (not the Toll Road). Go straight across the 4 way stop. +/- 10 km (maybe less), turn left towards Bergville/ Oliviershoek Pass. Travel another +/-10 km and turn left again. The sign will say Bergville. When you are descending the Oliviershoek Pass, you are on the "R74" Road. Just before Bergville (about 3km from Bergville), you will see our sign on the left hand side of the road.

From Durban: Stay on the N3. Shortly after the Estcourt off ramp, you will find a Shell Ultra City. The next off ramp will be the "Winterton/ Frere off ramp. Turn Towards Winterton. When you reach Winterton the road carries on straight through Winterton towards Bergville (this is the "R74" Road). The road passes Bergville and Bingelela is about 3km after Bergville on the right hand side.
