... school, and finally got to meet her hubbie Wayne. We spent the evening sitting around their braai (webber) in the backyard, while Wayne cooked a delicious potjie pot (like a beef and vegetable casserole in a big black pot), the boys played Lego, and we all chatted and drank beers!

At the end of our tour, we hopped on to two more local taxis, which was just as interesting the second time around, and returned safely to our Guest House. It was definitely an enriching experience!

... events leading up to the breakdown of the apartheid. He also drove us through one of the shanty towns within Soweto, which was an eye opener to say the least.

While at the lodge, we also visited a safari park, which might seem strange given we were about to embark on an 8 day safari through the bush, but the chance to play with lion cubs was too good an opportunity to miss! And so our few days in Jo'burg were actually much more pleasant than we ...
