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.

Housing between 1.2 million - 1.9 million residents (Although the city of Cape Town estimates its about 1.8 million), it comprises a number of sub-sections which reflect the diverse class backgrounds of the population.

Kruger Park - Talamati
Kruger Park - Talamati (Website)

Talamati is a Xitsonga word that means "Lots of Water". Yet, despite the meaning of the name, the river is actually dry. The clay soil however, acts as a giant sponge holding a vast reservoir of underground water and keeping the vegetation lush all year round. Talamati Bushveld Camp is situated in a large open valley, affording superb game viewing opportunities. The luxuriant grassveld in the area attracts large herds of grazers, and the predators never lurk too far behind.
