Directions to Cheerio

Take the N1 motorway from Johannesburg to Polokwane or the R71 from Tzaneeen to Polokwane (via Magoebaskloof NOT Georges Valley).

Approaching Polokwane on the N1, just after the Shell Ultra, the road separates into two and there is a sign (Tzaneen 600mts.) Slow down, as the turn is very sharp left onto the Tzaneen bypass.

Pass through two 4-way stops before reaching the R71 coming from Polokwane and turn right to head towards Tzaneen. Do not go directly accross the road as you will end up in Duiwelskloof. If you miss the Tzaneen bypass, proceed directly to and through Pietersburg and you will be directed to the R71 - Tzaneen.   Proceed on the R71 for approximately 57kms.

After passing Zion Christian City and going up and down a winding mountain pass, you will come to the village of Haenertsburg

Just past the village is a signboard giving directions to Tzaneen. Make sure that you continue on the R71 (via Magoebaskloof). Do not turn right at the bridge (via Georges Valley).   3kms from Haenertsburg, turn left on to a sand road clearly marked "Cheerio". From Tzaneen, the "Cheerio" sign is 3kms after the Magoebaskloof Hotel.

Follow the signs to Cheerio Trout Fishing & Holiday Resort. (23° 53' 44.455" S, 29° 57' 13.021" E
