Description
Kathu is a town in South Africa, and the iron ore capital of the Northern Cape province. Its name means "town under the trees", after the Camel Thorn forest it is situated in. The town and the accompanying industrial area of Sishen came into being because of iron ore mining activity in the Kalahari — it has one of the five largest open-cast iron ore mining operations in the world. The giant ore trucks bears about 220t of ore each load. Some of the world's longest ore trains travel through harsh territory on the Sishen-Saldanha railway to offload their cargo at Saldanha Bay. Kumba Iron Ore Ltd is the principal mine operator in Kathu. Kathu has a golf course and a small, well stocked game reserve also adjoins the town. Kathu has a well established sporting complex including Tennis, swimming and Golf. One of the tennis courts in Kathu is named after veteran tennis player Herta Hegewisch. Kathu is perfectly in between Upington and Vryburg with about a 2 hour drive to each. Kimberley ...

Kruger Park - Boulders
Kruger Park - Boulders (Website)

Boulders Bush Lodge, situated approximately 25 km south of Mopani, is embedded in the rocky outcrops found in the north of the Kruger National Park. The majestic rocks form a backdrop to the units that are built on stilts, with wooden boardwalks connecting the bedrooms to the communal area. The rooms are spaced closely together, without losing their privacy, making it suitable for groups made up of close families and friends that want to experience nature's tranquillity together. The viewing deck affords guests an unhindered view of the mopane veld plains, surrounding a private waterhole.
