From the R512 turn into the KOSMOS road. Pass all the new developments and the fountain in the road.After the Kosmos thatched security gate, take the left road, this is Coleman Street. Go over 5 speed humps. The road changes to Paul Kruger Street. The road goes up the hill past what I call "The Great Wall of China" and +- 150 meters further you see the sign of Duggan Street, we are the next driveway on the left.
Next you will see our wooden sign for Willinga Lodge. The driveway is rather sharp to take the corner so it is easier to go a bit further and turn (where it says "no turning") then come up our driveway from that way.
Don't go all the way to the top, park on the left as you come up the first part of the driveway in the parking area on your left. Walk up the driveway from the parking and then pick up the phone to contact us.
