From the airport
Find the highway that takes you towards Johannesburg. Continue on this highway and you will get to the point where the highway is about 6 lanes wide - you want to be in the middle lane. Follow pointers to the n3 going to Pretoria. Travel on N3, go past the London Road off ramp and take the next off ramp - Marlboro drive off ramp. Turn left at the end of the off ramp and travel up Marlboro drive. You will come to a traffic light intersection that has a shell petrol station on both sides of the intersection - at this intersection turn right into south road. Stay on south road for quite a way. It eventually ends in a T-junction with Rivonia Road. At the T-junction turn left into Rivonia Road (you will now be travelling south towards Sandton City). Go through a traffic light where Cell C is on your left and the Morningside Clinic is on your right. Turn left into the very next road - Marion Road (if you reach the traffic lights at the intersection of Rivonia and Grayston you have gone too far). Turn first left into Edward Rubenstein Drive.
