These photos were taken at Fancourt shortly after sunrise. It is one of the leading golf resorts in South Africa, boasting two 36 hole golf courses and a gardening staff of over 600. Our suite villa is shown in the third picture at the top. Taking a walk at that hour of the morning, one hears a beautiful variety of birds, for which the location is also famous.
From Fancourt, we proceeded to the ostrich farm where we first saw baby ostriches (first picture). Then, Vicky and the Linda, the ostrich, kissed several times as Linda took a corn kernel out of Vicky's lips (very hard to get that picture). Then came the famous ostrich ride--it was a very exciting fifteen seconds. Later, Vicky tried standing on the ostrich eggs--with the right underlying surface, this is possible. However, if the eggs break, they say the stench is so awful, you will throw your shoes away.
Next, we proceeded to the Cango Caves, first discovered in 1780. We visited six chambers in the caves, the largest of which is 350 feet long and 52 feet high.
