Directions:

From Shayamoya travel South on the N2 for approx. 90km, take the Hluhluwe off-ramp and travel towards Hluhluwe. Just past the Hluhluwe Town and the airfield turn left. Travel northwards for approximately 3km, and the tar road will end and become gravel (the tar road curves sharply to the right at this point). Travel along the gravel road for approximately 500m, and Ilala Weavers is clearly sign posted on the left hand side.
