The given published coordinates take you to a parking spot where you will begin a walk around a little village with a fascinating history.
You will be able to find a brochure introducing you to this unique, historic town at various places you might pass.

Leave your car and head to Waypoint 1. S 33° 13.879
E 020° 34.835.
How many miles to Cape Town ? Note this as ABC. Remember this number you will need it later.
(If you have time, visit the Marie Rawdon Museum in the main building close by.)

From here, make your way Waypoint 2.
S 33° 13.871 E 020° 34.976. How many pillars at the front ? This becomes F.
No need to go inside, but should you want to have a closer look, this would cost R5.

Stroll on to Waypoint 3.
S 33° 13.752 E 020° 34.864.
How many handrails do you count at the
steps, just before you have your swim ? Jot down as E.

Backtrack to the riverbed and head for Waypoint 4.
S 33° 13.815 E 020° 34.916.
Please step inside and count all the windows.
This gives you D.

(On your way to the treasure, look out for the cottage used by Olive Schreiner during her visits. Next to the Post Office.)

Make yourself comfortable and figure out the final coordinates.
S 33° 13.D(D-A)(B-D) E 20° 34.(C+F)E(D-A).
