    Driving to Eingedi?

    Get Directions

    From Ladybrand:
    – Travel on the N8 towards Bloemfontein for 15km.
    – Turn left onto the R26 towards Wepener/Hobhouse.
    – Travel 15km and about 1km beyond the Kommissiepoort Police Station, turn left onto the S612 dirt road after the Eingedi signboard.
    – 500m later turn left again onto the S616.
    – Travel for 2km and turn left into the 800m long driveway to Reception.
    – Please be sure to close the gate in order to prevent game from escaping.

    From Bloemfontein:
    – Travel on N8 for about 125km.
    – Turn right onto the R26 towards Wepener/Hobhouse. Follow the above directions.

    From Hobhouse:
    – Travel 25km on the R26 towards Ladybrand.
    – Turn right at Eingedi Retreat signboard. Follow the above directions.

    From Durban:
    Even though the drive via Golden Gates is spectacular, the 40km stretch of road between Fouriesburg & Ficksburg is not good.
    Here is an alternative suggestion:
    – N3 to Harrismith.
    – Travel via Bethlehem, Paul Roux, Senekal, Marquard, Clocolan, to Ladybrand.
    (The 25km stretch between Marquard & Clocolan, is nearly as bad as the Fouriesburg/Ficksburg stretch, but shorter).

    From Jo’burg:
    1st option:
    We would firmly recommend that you travel on the N1 via Bloemfontein, because of the current conditions of the road surfaces on the alternative shorter routes. Take the first Bloemfontein off-ramp off the N1, and follow the Bram Fischer airport signs, to get to the N8 (roughly 10km).
    See above directions ‘From Bloemfontein’.
    Please check on Google for an update on roadworks for the following alternative options:
    2nd option:

    – Right onto R26 to Ladybrand.

    – R26 to Ladybrand.
    – See above for directions ‘From Ladybrand’.
    4th option:
