Directions to All Out Adventures
*GPS co-ordinates are S 28 38.58 E 29 01.07
* we recommend following the written directions below because the GPS loves the “scenic” route!

Construction on the R74 between Harrismith and Bergville
More great news: the construction on the R74 between Harrismith and Bergville has resumed, so the road is passable in a normal car (but I would probable still stick to the highway in my Ferrari…)
Please just drive cautiously.

FROM JOHANNESBURG 360 km
Travel on the N3 to Harrismith. Take the N5 towards Bethlehem for 5km (exit 29)
Turn left and travel towards Phuthaditjhaba/Qwa Qwa for 8km
Turn left on to the R74 in the direction of Oliviershoek Pass and Bergville
Travel for 35km past the Sterkfontein Dam. Caterpillar and Catfish Cookhouse (adjust your speed) and Little Switzerland down the Oliviershoek Pass. (12km of this road is subject to road works and so is very rough. Please drive accordingly)
As the pass levels out, turn right, following the signs for NORTHERN BERG resorts, including Alpine Heath.
Travel towards the Royal Natal National Park for 6km only.
Turn right just after the Tower of Pizza, following the signs to ALL OUT ADVENTURES HLALANATHI, MONTUSI, ALPINE HEATH and THE CAVERN.
After 3km turn left into our parking.

FROM DURBAN 280 km
Take the N3 Durban-Johannesburg.
Beyond Estcourt, 6km after Shell Ultra City, leave the N3 taking the R74 direction WINTERTON and NORTHERN BERG
Travel through Winterton (21km) to Bergville
28km beyond Bergville, towards Harrismith turn left following the sign for NORTHERN BERG resorts, including Alpine Heath
Travel towards the Royal Natal National Park for 6km only.
Turn right just after the Tower of Pizza, following the signs to ALL OUT ADVENTURES HLALANATHI, MONTUSI, ALPINE HEATH and THE CAVERN.
After 3km turn left into our parking.

Safe travels and we will look forward to seeing you this weekend.
