Saturday morning at 6 am we were bound for  Hartbeespoort where the Elephant Sanctuary and Chameleon African Craft Village is located.  We arrived early so we had the opportunity to see the Hartbeespoort dam.  It was beautiful!

We then proceeded to the African open market and enjoyed some fine Indian food.  The top centre dish is Bunny chicken, bottom centre is butter chicken and 2 rice dishes spiced up very differently.

And if you are wondering if we shopped, indeed we did!  Our driver Styles was impressed with what we accomplished over the course of 2 hour shopping spree!

Styles was our driver for the day.  The trip from Mafikeng to  Hartbeespoort Dam where we visited the Elephant Sanctuary and the Chameleon Village Craft Market was just under a 3 hour drive.  Styles preferred to chill & relax while we shopped.  During the drive Styles taught us some Zulu and we can all now say 'Yes' YEBO and "Hello" SAWUBONA!

Sunday, July 6, 2014 – Day 24

Sunday morning the team decided to enter the Mafikeng Golf Tournament Fundraiser for Kids with Cancer.  Fun was had by all especially those of us who were first time golfers.  There were many Waterbuck roaming across the golf course throughout the day and that was interesting sight to see while trying to stay focused on the ball.  Waterbuck are a very large antelope found widely in sub-Saharan Africa.

Here is the Waterbuck that we ran into continuously while golfing.
