Description
Oppenheimer Stadium is a football (soccer) stadium in Orkney, South Africa. It currently has a capacity of 23,000, but that will be increased to 40,000 for the 2010 Football World Cup. The existing earth embankments around the stadium will be enlarged by creating a new reinforced concrete structure at the rear and building upwards. The size of the arena will be further increased by the removal of the athletics track, enabling in front of the first row of seats and creating girth for further rows to be installed. Then, the existing roof of the main stand will be removed and replaced by a new roof covering the extended main stand. It was named after Harry Oppenheimer, son of Ernest Oppenheimer and former chairman of De Beers. On the 13 January 1991, during a pre-season "friendly" football match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, there was a stampede with 42 deaths, the Oppenheimer Stadium Disaster, the second worst sporting incident in South Africa.

Kruger Park - Shingwedzi
Kruger Park - Shingwedzi (Website)

Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of mopane country. A scenic game drive along the Shingwedzi River in a south-easterly direction towards the Kanniedood Dam is one of the most rewarding drives in the Park. Waterbuck, nyala, kudu and elephant are often seen here and the bird life is prolific. Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime. It is a rustic camp that still carries the essence of the bush and is untouched by modern technology. Experience magical evenings where the accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow emanating from braai (barbecue) stands cast a tranquil spell.
