Happy travelling!

Route 2 (slightly longer, but less taxi's and better road)
Take the N3 to Durban, then south of Joburg take the Springs Highway (N17).
Travel for about 100 kms, then take the Evander turn off and turn right into R546 and continue for 60km to Standerton. At the T junction in Standerton, turn left and after abt 1 km at the first traffic light, turn right. You will see a Sasol petrol station and Pick & Pay shopping centre on your left. Travel through the suburbs and centre of Standerton until you get to a T-junction. Turn left on the R23 to Volksrust.  As you approach Volksrust, turn left just after Bridle Guest Farm and follow as above.

Route 3 (and by far the best at the moment, though slightly longer)
Take the N3 to Durban, then south of Joburg take the Springs Highway (N17).
Stay on the N17, travel for about 150 kms through the toll gate near Leandra etc. till you reach the town of Bethal. Go through Bethal on the N17 and a few kilometres outside the town, turn right into the R35 to Morgenzon and Amersfoort/Volksrust.
The R35 from Morgenzon to Amersfoort is a beautiful new road with lovely scenery. From Amersfoort take the N11 all the way till you reach Volksrust. This is also an excellent road. Don’t turn off onto the Wakkerstroom road just outside Amersfoort as this is a dirt road. At the very first traffic light in Volksrust turn left towards Wakkerstroom. Then follow as above to 64 Loop Street
