Orchards Farm Cottages Location and Directions

Directions from Pretoria/Tshwane

  • Follow the N4 East towards Witbank (Emahlaleni) and keep driving East towards Nelspruit.
  • Just after Machadodorp there are 2 options to Nelspruit - the Schoemanskloof road is the recommended route.
  • Also note that the N4 no longer goes through Nelspruit, but goes past Nelspruit, which saves quite a bit of time.
  • Komatipoort is approximately 100 km after Nelspruit.
  • When approaching Komatipoort outskirts, DO NOT TURN OFF THE N4.
  • You will pass the SASOL and ENGEN garages, and we are 1km further, across the Komati River Bridge.
  • Turn off to the left 50m after the bridge and follow the Orchards Farm Cottages signs left at the end of the road, all the way to the parking area.
  • Park under the designated shade-net parking bays and follow the Reception signs.

Directions from Kruger National Park Crocodile Bridge Gate

  • The town of Komatipoort is 8 km from the Kruger Park Crocodile Bridge exit.
  • Drive straight through the town until you get to the N4. At the N4, turn LEFT toward the Mozambique border post (Lebombo/Ressano Garcia).
  • We are 1 km from the turnoff and the SASOL and ENGEN garages, across the Komati River Bridge.
  • Turn off to the left 50m after the bridge and follow the Orchards Farm Cottages signs left to the end of the road, all the way to the parking area.
  • Park under the designated shade-net parking bays and follow the Reception signs.

Directions from the Lebombo/Ressano Garcia Mozambique border post:

  • Follow the N4 approximately 4 km, past the turnoff to Mananga/Swaziland.
  • On the bend in the road look out for the Hippo sign on the left - the entrance to Orchards Farm Cottages is just after that on the right, BEFORE the Komati River Bridge-  this is an ILLEGAL right turn due to fast traffic, so please pass the entrance all the way across the bridge, turn at the SASOL garage and come back so that you can turn off safely
  • Turn off to the left 50m after the bridge and follow the Orchards Farm Cottages signs left to the end of the road, all the way to the parking area.
    Park under the designated shade-net parking bays and follow the Reception signs.
