From Airport/N2: From Cape Town International Airport take the N2 towards City/Cape Town. As you approach the city and Table Mountain, the road starts climbing sharply. Position yourself in either of the 2 left lanes and then take the exit marked De Waal Drive (Camps Bay and Cableway). Drive along as the road winds along the mountain for about 3.4km and then take left off-ramp just before a small overhead bridge (the sign reads: M3 Camps Bay, Cableway). Drive for approximately 1.3km (along, Jutland, Mill and Orange streets), pass the 2nd set of traffic lights and then turn left into Hof Street. At the traffic lights take another left into Camp Street and immediately right into Molteno Road. Drive all the way up Molteno (it widens into a broad avenue). One street before the very top, turn right into Invermark Crescent and stop at number 12, marked ALTA BAY where we are located.
We can also organize shuttles from the airport.
