Head for Ladysmith on the N3.
When you arrive in Ladysmith, drive straight through, following the N11 Road to Newcastle. From the last traffic lights leaving Ladysmith travel for 7kms.
Turn right onto the D45 Road, follow for 10kms, at the T-Junction turn right, travel along side the game fence for +-2km, until you reach the gate.
The gate is manned and the Guard will advise the Lodge/Ranger of your arrival-house which is guarded.
