People of the Mdumbi

Over the past few of years i have spent quite a bit of time down in the Eastern Cape formerly known as the Transkei. My younger sister Lee-Ann Smith and her husband Justin Saunders, have a guest lodge in Mdumbi called Swell Eco Lodge. I would really recommend that you check out their website if you like unspoilt beaches, fun waves, fishing, empty clean rivers and lots of local culture! Here are a few images that I have taken of their neighbors.
