Kempton Park is a large town situated on the East Rand in Gauteng, South Africa.

Kempton Park 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. Soon after, the name was anglicized into Kempton Park. In 1952 the Jan Smuts Airport was built on the land next to the town. The airport's name was changed to Johannesburg International Airport in the late 1990s and to OR Tambo International Airport in 2006.

Kempton Park boasts over 5 Major High-schools, numerous entertainment and sporting facilities and is just minutes away from large shopping malls as well as many other amenities. Accommodation facilities here are superb and ideally situated as it is very close to the international airport. Experience tasty foods in one of their many fine restaurants or spend the evening sipping refreshing cocktails at a trendy nightspot.

Kempton Park is next to one of the largest townships in South Africa known as Tembisa. It also boasts a large industrial zone known as Spartan which holds many chemical manufacturing and other industrial sites. In addition, Kempton has a large coal power plant known as "kelvin power station". Kempton Park is a quaint residential suburb with marvelous amenities and generally, a great place to settle down.
