Houtkapperspoort Directions
Directions from Airport On exiting the airport grounds, follow the Cape Town signs. Drive over the bridge and immediately turn right towards and onto the freeway (N2) which will take you towards Cape Town. The road will start turning towards Table Mountain. Closer to the mountain you will drive over a bridge (the M5). Make sure you are in the left lane. You will drive underneath two bridges that are close to each other, and when you pass underneath the third bridge, the road will split. To the right is Cape Town. You need to turn to the left (M3 Muizenberg turnoff). Now you will be on De Waal Drive which will become Rhodes Drive. The University of Cape Town will be on your right, the Rhodes Memorial a bit further on your right as well. Soon after, go over to the right hand lane. At the first set of traffic lights, turn to you your right (Hout Bay/Kirstenbosch turnoff). Drive past Kirstenbosch (on your right), and at the T-junction turn right again. Go uphill (there is a pedestrian crossing at the top on the turn – be careful), and then downhill through all the turns past Cecelia Forest (on your right) until you get to the traffic circle at Constantia Nek. Go round the circle (avoid the first exit), and go downhill towards Hout Bay. Houtkapperspoort is about 200m down the road, the first entrance on your right (follow the wooden fence). As you enter the premises, please stop at the security boom and they will direct you to the office during office hours, or to your cottage if it is after office hours. Please note that the speed limit is 10kmh on the property. Children and animals have right of way.
