  Northern Cape - Nieuwoudtville is a town in Namakwa District Municipality in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. The town lies on the Bokkeveld Escarpment, and was established in 1897. The Nieuwoudtville Falls on the Doring River are located a few kilometres north of the town. Nieuwoudtville is in the Succulent Karroo Biome, which has less than 200 mm rainfall in winter and is even more arid in summer. However the region about this community is an oasis in the Biome, with the Orange River falling off the escarpment nearby.  
     
  Eastern Cape - Coffee Bay is a small village situated on the South African "Wild Coast" which stretches for 160 kilometers south from the Kei River mouth to Port Edward in the North and approximately 100 kilometers inland. The nearest large town, Mthatha, is approximately 80 kilometers away. Coffee Bay falls within the King Sabata Dalindyebo (KSD) district of the O.R Tambo District Municipality. The area is filled with diverse wild flora and fauna.  
     
  Western Cape - Arniston is a small seaside settlement on the coast of the Overberg region of South Africa, close to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa. Prior to the wreck of Arniston, it is also known as Waenhuiskrans, an Afrikaans name meaning literally "Wagon house cliff", after a local sea cave large enough to accommodate a wagon and a span of oxen.  
     
  Free State - Fouriesburg is a small town situated at the junction of the R711 and R26 routes in the eastern Free State. It is near the Maluti Mountains and only 10 km from Caledon's Poort border post, which gives access to Lesotho. During the late nineteenth century, this land was donated to the Orange Free State by a local farmer of Huguenot descent, Christoffel Fourie, for use as a temporary capital during the Second Boer War.  
     
  Gauteng - Magaliesburg is a small town situated below the Witwatersrand mountain range in Gauteng, South Africa. The Magaliesberg mountain range is north and visible from town, hence the name "Magaliesburg". The mountains themselves are named after Mogale Wa Mogale who was the chief of the BaPo ba Mogale. Burg is the Afrikaans name for Town whereas Berg is for mountain. The town and surrounds are popular holiday and weekend destinations for the residents of Johannesburg. With more than 100 accommodation venues and a great variety of activities, this small village at the foot of the Magalies Mountain is the ideal escape for city dwellers.  
     
  Kwazulu Natal - Himeville is a small village/town situated in the foothills of the picturesque Southern Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and approx. 130 km from Pietermaritzburg. The stone buildings which now comprises the Himeville Museum were built from 1896 to 1899 as the last of Natal's loop-holed forts. It was converted to a prison in 1902 and continued housing prisoners until 1972. An open-air exhibition of settler and agricultural history is surrounded by many display rooms housing themed exhibits.  
     
  Limpopo - Haenertsburg is a village situated on the edge of the Great Escarpment on the R71 road between Polokwane and Tzaneen en route to the Kruger National Park. Haenertsburg is also fondly called The Mountain by the locals due to its in hilly terrain. The Iron Crown Mountain is the highest point in Limpopo and is a well-known landmark. Frequent mists and relatively high rainfall have created a very lush vegetation with Afromontane forest patches occupying the kloofs (gullies) which dot the rolling grasslands and surrounding mountains.  
     
  Mpumalanga - Kaapsehoop or Kaapschehoop is a town in the Mpumalanga province (formerly Eastern Transvaal) of South Africa. It is situated 1486m (4878 ft.) above sea level on the Highveld escarpment, about 25km from Nelspruit, the capital of Mpumalanga. The name of the town is no doubt derived from the fact that when gold was discovered in the town, the find created hope for the early inhabitants of the geographically nearby De Kaap Valley - The Cape Valley - of attaining great wealth.  
     
  North West - Groot Marico is a hamlet in the North West Province of South Africa. The economy relies heavily on agriculture, mining and tourism. Groot Marico is named after the Marico River. The topography comprises dry bushveld with a climate that is ideal for cattle, maize, citrus fruit and tobacco.
