Keep a look out for the Stellenbosch offramp at PLANKENBERG ROAD (R304) and follow it all the way into town. If you keep on the road, it becomes BIRD STREET. Continue until yo pass over the BIRD & MERRIMAN ROAD intersection (identified by the Caltex garage on your right). Keep going, but your first right after that main intersection is DU TOIT STREET. Turn into that street, and take an immediate right again - into the BERGZICHT PLAZA. You will see the Klein Libertas Theatre sign in front of you, and the entrance gate going off to the left. Dont crash into the tree! It's really old, and that just wouldn't be metal \m/ FROM AIRPORT / N2: travel the highway towards Somerset West. Around 15km or so (very rough estimation) there is an offramp labelled BADEN POWELL (R310) - take that offramp and turn left towards Stellenbosch. Keep going all the way until the road ends in a T-junction at POLKADRAAI ROAD (M12) and turn right towards Stellenbosch. When you have entered town and see the train station on your left, there is a large intersection infront of you where the road merges into the R44 - continue, but get into the right lane. A few hundred meters after that is another intersection where you must turn right into MERRIMAN. At the next Traffic lights, turn right into BIRD STREET. At your first right again, turn into DU TOIT STREET, and take an immediate right again - into the BERGZICHT PLAZA. You will see the Klein Libertas Theatre sign in front of you, and the entrance gate going off to the left. Dont crash into the tree! It's really old, and that just wouldn't be metal \m/ FROM CAPE PENINSULA: Head to Muizemburg and get onto BADEN POWELL (R310) and follow the instructions as per above FROM AIRPORT / N2
