Pomfret is a desert town, the site of an old asbestos mine, on the edge of the Kalahari desert in northwest South Africa. It is the administrative centre of Molopo Local Municipality. Many of its inhabitants are former members of 32 Battalion, also known as Buffalo Battalion. These soldiers were predominantly black Angolans who were used by the South African government to help fight South Africa’s wars in Angola and Namibia, and after the end of the South African Border War to police the black townships.

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.
