Mngazana is a coastal hamlet on the Transkei coast. The Mngazana Estuary is regarded as the most important estuary in the Eastern Cape as it forms part of a 140 hectare stand of mangroves, the third largest in South Africa.
Mangrove conservation and community tourism initiatives at Mngazana have experienced promising success. Mangrove timber has a number of benefits over other timber, but the importance of preserving the delicate ecological balance is a value communities are buying into. A European Union (EU) funded tourism initiative sees tourists enjoying home stays in local homesteads and an evening with a local healer who shares her approach on keeping her community healthy.

Now the world can see why these black people say "The Government must give us". There is no electricity, no on tap water, no flushing toilets, but a view the whites will buy for! This is ideal foreign investment property in South Africa!
