Take the N2 from cape Town. Just before Swellendam turn right at the Malgas/Infanta sign. Continue on the gravel road for approximately 40 kms, turn left at the “Lemoentuin”sign. Take the first left hand turn, drive over a cattle grid and follow the signs down to the river.
The Malgas/Infanta road is a gravel/dirt road, the conditions vary depending on the time of year. Whilst a 4 x 4 is not necessary, care must be taken, do not exceed 60 kmh. Make sure your spare tyre is inflated. The 200 yards to Tides is quite bad but perfectly ok for normal cars if you take it slow. It is however not suitable for boat trailers, boats must be launched at the pont.
Note: please make sure you are on the Cape Town side of the Breede River and that you turn off the N2 just before the Breede River at the Malgas/Infanta
sign. The pont closes at Sunset so if you end up on the wrong side of the river you may not be able to get across.
