Directions are available on our website as well as on our interactive email signature. Together with the codes you will receive a direction message. We can arrange a shuttel to pick you up at the airport (at extra cost) as we don't have a convenient public transport system in Bloemfontein. The most convenient way of transport is to personally rent a vehicle. Our guest house is approximately 25 minutes from Bloemfontein Airport and 10 minutes from Tempe airport.
