African Adventure (Part IV)

 I thought I was going to have the full recap of out trip to South Africa finished last week, but I couldn't neglect the last leg of our trip.  While, the safari was the most exciting part, we still had the pleasure of seeing a lot more of this beautiful country, and hearing about some of the not so beautiful history.

Post safari, we had to make our way back to Johannesburg, about a six hour drive west of Kruger National Park.  It was a long day of travel, but broken up with some amazing sights, including

Bourke's Luck Potholes

, the amazing geological formations where the Trueur River tumbles into the Blyde below.

The last full day of our trip was spent touring Johannesburg and learning about the history of the country.  We traveled to

Soweto

, the neighborhood and home of Nelson Mandela.  We learned about Apartheid and the brave individuals, including Mandela that were responsible for bringing about change.  It was a moving day that reminded us that traveling is not just about taking a bunch of beautiful photos, it's about connecting with, and learning about different cultures.
