The established town of Kempton Park falls under the East Rand and lies to the north east of Johannesburg, a mix of residential and industrial zones.
Kempton Park is best known for being the home of the Impala jet, styled on the Italian Macchi jet and built under licence during the 1960s. The government recruited top engineers from at least 12 nations to build the jet which was used for over 40 years by South Africa’s aerobatic team, the Silver Falcons, for military excursions and for pilot training. Many of the foreign engineers remained and today Kempton Park is fairly cosmopolitan.
Kempton Park has a sophisticated arterial road network linking it to all major centres – primarily for access to Johannesburg’s international airport which is located here. The modern Gautrain (high speed train) operates from Kempton Park to Johannesburg, Sandton and Midrand.
With a large casino, international hotels and the airport, Kempton Park is a convenient destination for travellers to the Gauteng Province.
