Hello, and welcome! Went on holiday to Balito recently (Mom-in-laws flat at the sea). Had a huge search for a good electrician to fix her washingmachine which I broke..Hope you will be very happy there. Vegans are a bit thin on the ground in SA, its a cultural thing. Many vegetarians. But I'm sure we'll find some. Met one once but she was tiny and super healthy. Onto a good thing

Hi there - first of all - Welcome to South Africa! I came to a screeching halt in Cape Town 39 years ago when I planned to work my way around the world. It eats its way into the very fibre of your being. I am not a Vegan - more Flexitarian - but have recently had a virtual vegan houseguest and learned a lot from her. Also the family is involved in the food service industry in various ways
If I can be of any help - please get in touch - and I'll contact you in return for help when I have Vegan questions for you.
Again - welcome!

Hello fellow sparkers! I am a recent transplant from Canada and am just getting back to Spark now that I am settled in SA. I live just outside of Ballito and would be very interested in hearing from anyone nearby and also from anyone who could help me find the South African equivalent of some of the products I commonly use in vegan cooking.
