  • On the bend in the road look out for the Hippo sign on the left - the entrance to Orchards Farm Cottages is directly opposite on the right, BEFORE the Komati River Bridge- turn in through the white entrance structure, and follow the signs left. This section of the N4 is an 80 km/per hour zone, but a number of drivers seem to ignore this, so please take care to put your car's indicators on well before the bend and watch your rear view mirror for speeding vehicles.
