Directions from King Shaka International Airport to Durban Elephant

  • Take the exit from the airport to the N2 going South to Durban. This is clearly signposted as there is only one freeway from the airport, but be sure to go South to Durban.
  • There is a toll booth almost immediately and you have to pay a R4.00 toll.
  • Stay on the N2 South for approx 37 kms.
  • Look out for Exit 165 which will indicate Durban/Pietermaritzburg /N3.
  • Move into the left lane to take the Durban/N3 glide off, which takes you onto the N3, going East into Durban.
  • Stay on the N3 to Exit 3 which says Ridge Road.
  • Glide off on this exit and go into the right hand lane so that you are able to turn right and cross over the bridge, over the N3.
  • Go up a steep hill (here the road is called Mazizi Kunene/ Ridge Road) and turn left at the first intersection, at the top of the hill, into Che Guevera (formerly Moore Road)
  • Travel through the traffic lights and turn right into Cato Road , first road to your right after the traffic lights..
  • Follow Cato Road up and down some hills, crossing Clark Road and Alan Paton Road and go to the end of Cato Road.
  • In the last section of Cato Road it is divided by an island so you have to go to the end of the road, do a U-turn and come down the other side again.
  • After you have turned, you pass 3 houses and you will be very close to our place. Look out for a number on a gate post and an arrow indicating that we are up a pan handle drive way. There is a buzzer and intercom outside the gate. Give us a moment or two to respond to open the gate and let you in. There is ample parking at the top and an easy place to turn if you are being dropped off.
