http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki

Kempton Park is a large town on the East Rand in Gauteng, South Africa, formerly in the Transvaal. It was established in 1903 when Karl Wolff sub-divided a portion of his Zuurfontein farm into residential stands and named the new village Kempten after the Bavarian town of his birth. The name was anglicised into Kempton Park.

In 1952 the Jan Smuts Airport was built on land next to the town. The airport's name was changed to Johannesburg International Airport in the late 1990s. Kempton Park has been part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality since 2000. Kempton Park is located north-east of Johannesburg and south of Pretoria lying in the middle of the two cities.
