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 - Bateleur
Kruger Park - Bateleur (Website)

This delightful camp is situated on the banks of the Mashokwe spruit approximately 40 km south west of Shingwedzi in the beautiful northern Mopane/Woodland savannah of the Kruger National Park. Named after the majestic eagle, Bateleur, being the oldest and the smallest of the bushveld camps, offers a unique atmosphere and superb game viewing. One of the many features Bateleur offers is a game-viewing hide that overlooks a waterhole just outside the camp. Two dams, Silwervis and Rooibosrand, are within close range of the camp and are restricted to the residents of Bateleur - good to know as there will never be a traffic jam even if the camp is full.
