Description
Mitchell's Plain is a largely coloured township about 20 km from the city of Cape Town. It is South Africas 4th largest township (after Khayelitsha-1, Soweto-2, unknown name in East London-3) although looking at Mitchells Plains growth rate it is probably the 3rd largest township in South Africa and Cape Town's 2nd (after Khayelitsha). It is located on the Cape Flats on the False Bay coast between Strandfontein and Khayelitsha.

Kruger Park - Crocodile Bridge
Kruger Park - Crocodile Bridge (Website)

This small and delightful camp is situated in the south-eastern corner of the Kruger National Park, on the northern bank of the Crocodile River, from which it derives its name. After an early morning game drive, one can retire from the Lowveld heat to a lunch of prawns before coming back for late afternoon game viewing. The game viewing area is known as the 'Southern Circle' and is renowned for its concentration of different prides of lion with different hunting techniques and behaviour. It has an abundance of prides, herds, troops, packs and swarms. It is home to a larger percentage of the Kruger National Park's total rhino population. Come and experience humans living in harmony with nature. Here one has the ability to experience the sharp contrast between the wilderness and the world out there.
