Where We Are and How to Get Here

High 5 is situated 2.5 hours drive east of Pretoria and Johannesburg.

Just off the N4 between Machadodorp and Badplaas on the R541 so NOT through the expensive Machadodorp toll gate!).

If you want to use GPS, make sure that you type in the correct information in your GPS!
Do not follow it blindly to Pongola KZN, for instance!
Rather follow the written directions.

The main Lodge & Manager’s residence is at:
