Driving Direction to Prince Albert

From Cape Town

On the N1 head toward Paarl. From the R300 interchange the driving distance to Prince Albert is 366km. Proceed on the N1 through Worcester, Touws Rivier and Laingsburg. About 86 km past Laingsburg at "Prince Albert Road"  turn right onto the R407 to Prince Albert, which is about 46km away. Although the territory is fairly flat from prince Albert Road to prince Albert there are some fairly tight corners that you may underestimate, so take care.

From Johannesburg and Pretoria

On the N1 from William Nicol (Sandton) On ramp go South toward Blomfontein. Total distance to Prince Albert is 1082km. From Rigel Road on ramp in Pretoria go south to Johannesburg via N1/M1/N1 out on the southern side of Johannesburg. Both Johannesburg and Pretoria routes merge south of Johannesburg. Proceed to Leeu-Gamka which is past Beaufort West. 12kn after Leeu Gamka you can turn left on to the R353 which is a 44km gravel road to Prince Albert, or you can go 42 km from Leeu-Gamka and turn left onto the R407 (R328) which is tarred.

From Knysna

Go south on the N2 to George, at George the road forks left to the N2 and straight on the N12/N9. Continue into George on this N12.N9 route. You will eventually go through three traffic circles as you head out of George and onto the Outeniqua pass to Oudtshoorn. At Oudtshoorn you can go straight through town (Baron von Rheede St) onto the R328 to Prince Albert vis the Swartberg Pass (part of this road is gravel and can be difficult to negotiate in adverse weather). The alternative route is to turn right onto the N12 just as you enter Oudtshoorn and go via De Rust, Meiringspoort and Klaarstroom before turning left onto the R407  to Prince Albert. Either way you get to travel through two extremely beautiful areas showing the grandeur of creation.
