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. Conceived of as a 'model township' by the apartheid government, it was built during the 1970s to provide housing for coloured victims of forced removal due to the implementation of the Group Areas Act. Though Mitchell's Plain is no longer officially a 'coloured african township,' the majority remain overwhelmingly Coloured African.

Kruger Park - Sirheni
Kruger Park - Sirheni (Website)

'Sirheni' is a Tsonga word that means 'cemetery', after a type of elephant graveyard at a site near to the camp. Sirheni Bushveld Camp nestles on the edge of the Kruger National Park's northern plains within the Mopane veld of the region. The Sirheni Dam, on the Mphongolo River, lies next to the camp. The accommodation facilities and the camp's two bird hides overlook the dam and a wide variety of game and birds are attracted to it. Visitors have been awakened to the sounds of lion and hyena, as there are often kills at the dam. Sirheni has a resident leopard that is seen on a regular basis, often coming down to drink at the dam.
