Directions

Take the N4 highway to Brinkhorstspruit. Right after Bronkhortspruit, take the R25 off-ramp and turn left. Follow this road (R25) for about 20km until you get to a road that shows Ezemvelo to the right. From there on simply follow the Ezemvelo sign boards for about 20km until you get to the Ezemvelo gate.
Please do NOT take the very first turn-off to Ezemvelo right after Bronkhortspruit on the R25. That gravel road is not in a great condition so try to avoid it (unless you are driving a bakkie or SUV). The gravel road at the second turn off (as per these directions) are in a better condition and can be done in a normal car.
From the Solomon Mahlangu / Hans Strydom off-ramp it is about 75km to Ezemvelo.
