From Inland (JHB; Pretoria; Bloemfontein):
Travelling on the N3 to Durban as you pass the Pavilion Shopping Centre, (on your right) take the South Coast turn-off on your left.

The first turn-off on the left will bring you to Edwin Swaels V.C drive. Travel towards the Bluff untill you get to the end of Edwin Swaels V.C Drive and turn left up Bluff rd. At the first set of robots turn right into Old Mission rd.

Almost immediately turn left into Clarkson rd. Travel straight up the hill and at the corner it becomes Marathon rd. We are number 22 Marathon rd, which is situated on the corner of the Marathon rd and Olympic Ave. Guest Entrance is in Olympic Ave.
