DIRECTIONS TO CAMP AFRICA:
Come in towards Louis Trichardt (Makhado) on the N1 from Polokwane (Pietersburg).
As you reach Louis Trichardt (Makhado) on the N1, go straight at the first circle and the following two (2) four-way stops on the N1 in the direction of Louis Trichardt.
At the second circle on the N1 – S 23° 02’ 03.7” E 29° 55’ 05.7” – (there is a Caltex garage on the right hand side) turn left/west towards Louis Trichardt (Makhado) central.
At the SECOND stop street – S 23° 01’ 54.9” E 29° 54’ 41.2” – (there is Mount Fuji Garage directly to the left and a Church – Dutch Reformed – to the right front) turn right into Forestry Road.
Follow Forestry Road to the end of the tar road and the boom of Komatiland Forests – E 23° 01’ 22.2” E 29° 54’ 31.4” – then follow the Camp Africa road signs.
Follow the most travelled (wide) gravel road. From the start of the gravel road at the boom it is about 2 km to a built up area with houses, buildings, etc. Here the road turns sharply to the left at what may seem like a Y-junction in the road – there is a signboard for picnic sites – follow the signs to the left and continue straight. Follow the Camp Africa signboards.
About 100 m further (at the end of all the buildings) there is a gate and a 30 km per hour speed limit road sign (there is a large round, black reservoir to the left of this gate). As a further landmark – to the left of the road there is a shelter area with various equipment under roof; the shelter area is usually lit every night. Drive a little more than 2 km further up the mountain on this road (the road most travelled) until you reach a house (ours) on the right hand side – all the outside lights are on at night – DO NOT TAKE THE DRIVEWAY TO THE HOUSE BUT STAY ON THE MAIN ROAD – follow the Camp Africa road signs. Just after the house is Camp Africa, follow the main road around the bend in the road to the right and enter Camp Africa – E 23° 00’ 11.4” E 29° 54’ 02.1” – just before the small hut with the Camp Africa logo on the right hand side.
Please contact us should you have any questions.
We look forward to having you at Camp Africa…
Thank you in advance.
