About Me

CURRENT MISSION
I have recently moved to East London from Botswana.
please let me know you are in the area for a trip to the Beach for breakfast or lunch :) I love hosting visitors for meals or a trip down the Coast.
Let me show you this wonderful area ! East Coast Views ( facebook )
N.B Never stay on East London main beach ! ( not good)

East London and its surrounding areas have many beach spots Gonubie , Glen , Eden Cinstsa , Nahoon beach spoilt by good food and coffee before travelling.
We also have a good Game reserve 40kms away, Inkwenkwezi.
I can meet you and visit one of the great Tourist Spots !!
