Lenasia is approximately 35 kilometers south of the Johannesburg central business district and 45 kilometers south of the Sandton central business district. Apartheid-era planners situated the group area for Johannesburg's Indians near the Lenz military base. The name "Lenasia" is thought to be a combination of the words "Lenz" and "Asia". The Lenz in question was one Captain Lenz who owned the original plot on which Lenasia is situated. Many of its early residents were forcibly removed under the Group Areas Act from Vrededorp (aka.Fietas) and Fordsburg, non-racial areas close to the Johannesburg city centre, to Lenasia.

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.
