Travel through Mpongwe on the tar road towards zambeef farms.
The tar road ends and carry straight on this road (do not turn towards zambeef)
After about 10 km you will come to a village – Katatama – and you will see a sign for St Anthony mission on your right – take this road right.
Carry on this road until you come to a grain shed on your left and just before the shed there is a road to the left – take this road (if you go too far you will arrive at the mission)
Keep on this road until it comes to a fork – (Jehovah witness church on your right) take the right hand fork
Keep on this road until you come to a field with pivots – keep right around the field and as you circle half way around you will see a sharp bend to your right – take this road right.
Keep on this road – it goes over a bad bridge and becomes a track – keep straight and you will eventually see a road to your left with a silver arrow on the tree – take this road left and keep straight until you come to the game fence and follow this to our gate and we are based just inside the fence.
