How to get there
Follow the N2 highway towards Cape Town. Take the M3 Rhodes Drive/Muizenberg turnoff on your left. When you reach the T junction at the end of the M3, turn right at the traffic light in the direction of the M64 Ou Kaapse Weg. At the 2nd traffic light turn left onto the M64 Ou Kaapse Weg. Drive over the mountain into Sun Valley, a suburb of Fish Hoek. Travel through two sets of traffic lights and drive over Black Hill. At the T junction and traffic light, turn right in the direction of Simon's Town. At the second set of robots (the first set of robots is a pedestrian crossing), you turn right into Dido Valley Road. The first street to your right is Penguin Drive.
