Today we had the most fantastic day with my uncle Chappie. He took us to the Cradle of Man Kind, which is where they have found some the earliest evidence of early man kind.
We started out at the origin centre in Johannesburg, then headed to Marupeng which is large museum/interactive centre where they discribe the development of man kind. From here we went to the Sterkfotein caves which was just incredible... so vast! Unbelievable to think that the rocks we were standing on were well over 2 million years old!
Aaron luckily also got to see his first lions in a semi wild enviroment we saw them from the road at a breeding centre. Which was pretty cool
