About Me


Enjoying Cape Town


I am Brandon. I love exploring, running and meeting new people. I want to see as much of the world as possible, and experience many things in many different locations. I love eating Berries. I am vegetarian. I like penguins and mountains. I'm a city researcher - working for the African Centre for Cities at the university; so issues from urbanisation to property ownership, spatial segregation and economic mobility appeal to me!


I'm an atheist, a tolerant, open, non-aggressive one. We are allowed to have different views :) I'm happy to chat about your views too!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


surfing and hosting!


Surfed around Tanzania, USA, Brazil, Bolivia. Argentina and Malawi, Rwanda, Ghana and Burundi. I really enjoyed it and happy to be a part of the community. I have recently been hosting quite a few people in my apartment in Cape Town.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

At the start of 2015 I ran 400km in 10 days. This was the same route that 7000 mineworkers walked in 1899 as they escaped war. I did this to raise money for charity!

Got naked at the peak of Mt Meru in Tanzania at 6: 15 in the freezing cold.

Spent 30 days walking the entire length of a river in south Africa. The first people to do it!

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn anything. I have a lot of learning to do. I do not know much, and need to keep knowing more and more for the rest of my life.

The history/political situation of your country

I want to learn more about photography.

I would like to learn some of your boogy dance moves.

I would like to take my guests running
