Directions from Johannesburg and the South Coast:

Take the N2 north towards Stanger, North Coast. Once on the N2 just keep going, (you'll pass a few offramps) until you pass the KwaMashu turnoff. The next offramp is the Umhlanga, Phoenix, Gateway, Mt Edgecombe turnoff. You should see the Gateway Shopping Centre on your right. Once you've taken the offramp, turn right to cross the bridge over the N2. Ahead of you, you will see the new Millennium Bridge, a sort of white arched thing. Make sure you go under the bridge. Almost immediately after you've been under the bridge take the next offramp which will take you to Umhlanga Rocks Drive.

At the top of the offramp turn left. You will then pass McDonalds on your left, go through the first traffic circle, pass the Umhlanga Hospital and a few other buildings on the left, then go through the second circle. Make sure to go straight through the second traffic circle (keep in the left lane to do so). You will then pass the Sharks Board on your left.

After the Sharks Board take the first road right which is Royal Palm. Go down to the T-junction (fountain in the middle) and turn left into Windsor and then first right into Pearl. Go straight down Pearl to another T-junction which is Hilken Drive. Opposite the stop are two gates. We are the left hand gate, sign outside for Umbrella Tree.
