Additional Location Information
The Hermannsburg / Kranskop area is extremely picturesque with valleys, mountains, rivers and dramatic krantzes. Beautifully preserved meadows abound in wild flowers and a great variety of birds.
Hermannsburg was settled in 1854 by missionaries and colonists from northern Germany. The present day community is still centered around the original Mission House (now the museum), and the Luthern Church.
Kranskop, previously known as Hopetown, is a typical trading town full of African bustle.
Having a car is essential as Glen Erskine Farm cannot be reached by public transport. The uShaka Airport is R120 km away near the city of Durban.
Hermannsburg can be approached on the R74 from Stanger or Greytown, or on the R33 from Pietermaritzburg or Dundee.
For those approaching from Pietermaritzburg, Travel about 55 – 60km Travel through New Hanover, Seven Oaks and before you get to Greytown look out for the Kranskop/ Mispah/Stanger sign “Kranskop/ Mispah/Stanger” just before the huge grain silos to the right of the R33. The P160 is a fairly good tar road. Take this road for +/- 15km until you come to a T-junction at Welgegund – turn right towards Kranskop. The Hermannsburg turn to the right is 10km from the T-junction and is clearly signposted. Turn right onto the P305 at the crossroads by the piggery and then left onto the Boscombe Mondi turnoff. From there simply follow the Glen Erskine signs for another 8km to the farm.
Route 1: Take the N3 Highway and go off at Mooiriver and take road to Greytown, go straight through Greytown and the Hermannsburg turnoff is about 24km outside of Greytown on the R74. Turn left at the Boscomb Mondi turnoff on the P305, and follow the Glen Erskine signs for another 8km to the farm.
Route 2: Take the N3 Highway and go off at Ladysmith and the travel Colenso, Weenen, Muden then Greytown, travel straight through Greytown and the Hermannsburg turnoff is about 24km outside of Greytown on the R74. Turn left at the Boscomb Mondi turnoff on the P305, and follow the Glen Erskine signs for another 8km to the farm.
Please travel carefully and preferably by day in order to avoid the potholes, cattle and game on some of our more rural road.
