May 10, 2016

We all got up at o dark o'clock for our early morning game drive.  For the next 3 hours we looked for all the animals who were getting up to start their day. 

We then returned to the lodge for breakfast. We were all packed up and headed to Hoedspruit for our flight to Johannesburg.

 When we arrived we met up with our Johannesburg guide,  Lindsey Khan.

We went on a tour of Soweto, South Africa's most prominent township.  It is a place of tremendous contrasts.  It is the richest township in SA, but this is also contrasted by some of the desperate poverty. The government is replacing some of the shacks small brick homes.  However, some of the people did not want to move because they would have to pay to live there. We visited the memorial that was built to honor the youth who had died in the struggle for freedom.

We had dinner at the Tribes Restaurant.

We checked into our hotel, the D'oreale Grande at Emperors palace Casino.  There is plenty to do here and a lot of entertainment.
