The morning not only started very early but also cold, dark and rainy. But the difficult start was worthwhile as we were able to observe during our early morning safari even more of the same animals we had already seen and also some giraffes. One group was even able to observe a lion feasting on the carcass of a wildebeast.
From Pilanesberg we traveled to Lesedi Cultural Village where we were able to experience a bit of the culture of four ethnic groups of South Africa. After a tour we were treated to a dance extravaganza and a lunch of ostrich and crocodile where some were surprised to find that ostrich tastes like beef. (Finally something that doesn't taste like chicken!)
After lunch we traveled to Pretoria, one of four capital cities in South Africa. We visited the Union Buildings and surrounding pristine terraced gardens of indigenous plants where Nelson Mandela was sworn in as South Africa's first black president.
All in all, a very full, exhausting and satisfying day was had by everyone.
