Hi,

There is no such place in South Africa. The coordinates given in your message is that of a place called "Helpmakaar" in Zululand in Natal Province.

The only connection between Helpmekaar and the Klingenbergs is that the late Otto Klingenberg farmed there, he wrote a book on the local black African cannibals(Menschenfresser)who lived in the area in the late 1800s. His two sons still farm there.(Search for Otto Klingenberg on the net.)

Cheers
Rudolf
