South Africa Statistics

 People often ask where exactly in South Africa we live.  The town in which we live is called Rustenburg.  It's about an hour and a half northwest of Johannesburg and almost directly west of Pretoria.  (Click on the above map to enlarge.)

Rustenburg got it's name from the Afrikaans and Dutch languages and it means "town of rest."  According to the most recent National Census done in 2001, there are 395,539 inhabitants and Rustenburg is reported to be fastest growing city in South Africa.
