Leeds is situated in West Yorkshire, in the north of England, in the UK.

Mnyakanya High School is about three hours by road from Durban and it is almost due North from Durban, South Africa. Because it is in the southern hemisphere, our winter is their summer and vice-versa. However, some of their winter's days are as nice as our summer days. In the summer it can be above 40 degrees centigrade. The school is based very high up in the hills, in the rural and remote Nkandla region of  KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
