We have a 3km dirt road that changes with the seasons. During our dry months, small vehicles can use the easier "standard vehicle road". As long as we don't have rain, smaller vehicles can reach us quite easily. In rainy season it is advised you bring a high profile vehicle. Non 4x4's can make it, however we do ask for car information before arrival so we can assist with a shuttle (for an extra fee to cover petrol).
