Both routes join up with the R43 that leads you towards and through Hermanus to Stanford. When entering Stanford make a left onto the R326 towards Caledon / Riviersonderend. Continue on the tar road for approximately 4km and make a right turn towards Papiesvlei. Continue on the gravel road for 3.5km till you see the Panthera Africa sign on your right. Drive 1.3km, through the neighbouring farm, and follow the signs to the entrance.
