Directions to Highgrove House

From Pretoria proceed east on the N4, past Witbank, Middelburg and Machadodorp. About 1.5 km's after the third toll leave the N4 and take the left fork at the bottom of the hill. This is the “scenic route” via Schoemanskloof and much quieter traffic and certainly very few trucks. This meets up with the N4 again and will take you directly to Nelspruit. 

 

At the third traffic light you come to in Nelspruit turn left onto the R40, direction White River. At the last traffic light in White River turn left. This will still be the R40, direction Hazyview. After 27 km’s you will see our entrance – white wall on right with Highgrove House on it. Turn right onto Highgrove Avenue and follow signs through the forest to Highgrove House. NB Watch the speed limit between Nelspruit and White River – there are cameras at most of the traffic lights!

 

From Hazyview go through Hazyview (on the R40) in a Southerly direction to the last 4 way stop. Be very careful as the R40 makes a right turn at this stop and is incredibly badly sign posted. Look for a sign which says White River R40 which is behind another sign. You must turn right at this sign which is the R40 again, direction White River. (If you do not turn right you will have a very long journey to White River then follow directions above back to us.) Having turned right, go 16 km’s and you will see our white wall from the other side. Turn left onto Highgrove Avenue.
