Directions to Waterberg Cottages

We know it’s taken a while, but we think you will agree it was worth the wait. The road from Nylstroom to Vaalwater is now not just free of potholes – it’s a brand new extra-wide sheet of glistening asphalt, complete with cool duel carriageway bits up the hills. The Road to the Waterberg is now Open. ….. Come and check it out for yourself.

From Pretoria:

Take the N1 north (signed Pietersburg or Polokwane) and follow this for about 110km until the Kranskop toll gate (the third tollgate you come to). At this toll gate turn off the N1 onto the R33. Take the R33 towards Nylstroom (Modimolle). This is a 10km stretch. Go straight through Modimolle and continue on for 64km until you get to Vaalwater. At Vaalwater you will come to a 4-way stop. Turn right (signed Melkrivier), this is a tar road. There are two ways to reach us, select which option you would prefer:

Option 1 - Less Gravel, Longer Distance - 33km

Continue on this road for about 24.5km, then turn right, signed to Sterkstroom. This is now a gravel road. Continue on this road for about 3km until you see a triangular “beware of cattle” sign on your left. On your right just after this is a yellow sign saying “Charles Baber”, with a picture of a bull on it. Turn right here onto the farm road. The road runs straight for about 3km. At this point you will see a game fence and gate in front of you. Don’t go through this game gate, instead follow the road you are on as is bends to the left. It splits into two, keep to the right hand road. You basically now follow this road until you come to the cottages. It takes a 90 degree right hand turn after about 500m, then is straight for another 500m. The road then forks. Don't turn left here, instead veer right over a cattle grid and into the game fenced area. Follow the road and you cross another cattle grid and arrive at Waterberg Cottages, near the tennis court. Turn right around the tennis court and follow the signs to reception.

Option 2 - More Gravel, Shorter Distance - 29km

Turn right after 10km onto a gravel road signed to Vier-en-Twintig-Rivier. After 8.5km turn left signed to Naauwpoort. After 7.5km turn left at a large yellow sign saying 'Charles Baber' with a picture of a Bosmara bull on it. Travel a further 2km along a farm road, keeping left at a fork. You will arrive at the homestead, and we will direct you then to you accommodation.
