Other remarks:

This lovely animal was walked around us before the food was served and we were asked to keep calm. He remained with his handlers at the top stage during117777 the meal, and was continually stroked and petted by these handlers. In addition to seeing the cat, another attraction of the evening was having local tribal markings plainted on our faces using something that looked a bit like Tippex. The scenery from the mountains we saw on the way when visiting the Stellenbosch wine region was also unlike anything I had seen before. South Africa is a wonderful country.
