We visited the Cradle of Humankind World Inheritage Site and the Culktural village.
The Cradle of Humankind in the Gauteng Province around 50 kilometers from Joburg was an interesting experience. The name Cradle of Humankind reflects the fact that the site has produced a large number, as well as some of the oldest, hominid fossils ever found, some dating back as far as 3.5 million years ago. Africa is the birthplace of humankind.
This is applicable in our project and we'll definitely use it in our final presentation to the client!
After our visit to the Cradle of Humankind we drive to the Cultural Village where we could visit the 4 different African tribes: Zulu, Bosotho, Pedi and Xhosa. The current Executive Mayor is from the Xhosa tribe as well as Nelson Mandela.
We were welcomed by dancing and singing Africans

After some energetic African dances where we could participate, we had an African lunch in the village
If you want you can come and stay with them for a few days....
I was glad we did this visit as it puts things in perspective in terms what you really need to live and be happy.
