Please note there are two proposed travel routes to reach Alpine Heath Resort but the quickest route, which involves driving on the road between Harrismith and Alpine Heath Resort, is not the easiest road to travel on due to current construction taking place. As such, we would highly recommend that guests taking this route do so only during the day and when travelling this path, to please drive slowly and carefully when approaching the two sets of roadworks enroute.

The slightly longer, alternative route that proceeds through Ladysmith consists of much better roads so we recommend that visitors take this route when travelling during misty and low visibility conditions or at night time. Please note that this route adds an additional 80km onto your journey and you are required to go through an additional toll road.

  • Once you have passed the Estcourt Shell Ultra City, take the R74 off ramp towards Bergville / Winterton.
