Elena with Heinrich at the Cradle of Mankind
Our smart guide shows us some fossils. Then on a boat with an explanation of the origin of the universe from the Big Bang followed by an exhibition on the Cradle of Mankind but very tailor made for children. After bringing back Hendrik, Heinrich and Helena, we go to the caves: the site of Mrs. Ples, a 2.6 milion year old skull of a woman ape, the Australopithecus Africanus. At night we invite Elmi and her childhood friend Cindy for a diner in the super luxery lodge Mount Grace. Indeed we enjoy a delicious meal!
Albertien and Hendrik in the Impala Nursery
Then together to the Impala nursery where they grow perennials. The father of the owner was a good friend of the old Hendrik. In the afternoon we buy some beer and wine and enjoy that night a great meal in the Matlapa Lodge.

In the afternoon a traditional braai with family and children. We meet Stephan, Elmi’s brother, and his son Sebastian as well as Gerard, son of Hendrik and Rina, the elder sister of Hendrik. Its an american party (we contribute beer and wine) and traditionally the men are taking care of the braai!
