Here's a little writeup Natasha did of Madikwe (the area, not the game reserve).

The Purple shall rule! "I would like to take the Train to DBN this week but I would first like to know if there's heaters onboard and if not why not? Because the last time I used Shosholoza I nearly froze to death as it got stuck for about 2 to 3 hours so wanna make sure if heaters are working before I freeze myself with cold." Eric

The Bottom Line: Sad to read that the Resilient Property Fund has decided to stop building in South Africa & to focus instead on Nigeria: "The state of the local authorities and provincial government departments is of a big concern to us and is one of the reasons we’ve stated publicly that … our model of developing non-metropolitan area malls is drawing to an end. We’re building in Burgersfort and in Secunda in partnership with the Sasol pension fund. We’re building in Sterkspruit, but apart from that we are unlikely to build any new malls in South Africa."
