Rain and gray skies again. I was going to do the shark dive again with Erica, but unfortunately it was cancelled because of the weather.

We ended up going to the world of birds. This place was a huge mish mash of birds and animals from around the world. It was all very interesting and it must have contained most of the major birds I'd seen from around Africa + many more.

There were also meerkats, an animal I'd been wanting to see my whole trip.

We thought we'd spend an hour in the place and ended up staying for 4. What a fantastic place, God only knows why this is not in the Lonely Planet guidebook.

Robbie who I did the wine tour with recommended Khaya Nyama (house of meat) for a good restaurant to try game meat. This place beat Mama Africa hands down. Besides the price the quality of the meat was on a different level. I had a starter of smoked meats including springbok, ostrich, crocodile and kudu. Main course was springbok, croc, eland and ostrich. I have to say I loved the springbok, it was so tender it fell from the bone.

Eland was also a nice steaky meat.

If you ever go to Cape Town check out this place and give Mama Africa a miss.
