Back to Johannesburg
9.9.13 - 9.10.13 86 °F
After our morning game drive, we packed up and headed to the airport for our noon flight back to Johannesburg for the night. On the way to the hotel, we toured through the historically significant Soweto district, the birthplace of the apartheid uprising. It was from this outskirt of Joburg, that Nelson Mandella, Archbishop Tutu and others started the movement and were arrested as being terrorists. We visited Mandella's house, which is now a museum.
We arrived at the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel, a five star plus residence, for a brief stay as we leave at 6:00am for the airport. For dinner we went to an African themed cuisine restaurant - Moyo - in the Melrose Arch district of Johannesburg. It was a wonderful meal.
