The road you are on crosses over the N4 highway and after another kilometre you come to a traffic light. You are on the R25 heading North. Bronkhorstspruit is on the left, but do not turn in. There are two further stops, and then proceed for another 2 km till you reach the signboard on the left saying Ezemvelo. Turn Right onto the Vlakfontein dirt road.
