Mossel Bay Interviews with Tourists

Mossel Bay Interviews with Tourists

Christelle Kleynhans, the new journalist of the Lalakoi Publishing Network, went out and about in Mossel Bay and Hartenbos to ask the holidaymakers about their experience of the holiday season in the Garden Route of South Africa!

It was a loving sunny summer’s morning on the 11th of January 2011 when I took my camera and writing pad and headed down to the beach to chat to some of the holidaymakers and tourists visiting our lovely area!
