Guest: Donovan Gillman | Landscaper

A new plant-covered building is due to be built at 142 Bree Street in Cape Town, which will be Africa's first-ever 'biophilic' building.
This approach aims to connect the people who live in the building more closely with nature. 
The exterior of the apartment block will feature a vertical garden with 50 species of indigenous trees and shrubs, and integrated PV solar panels will generate double the electricity quota needed to power the common areas.
"The Fynbos" was created by architectural firm, TwentyEightZeroTwo, and the vegetation and the highly technical water system by our guest, Donovan Gillman, who is the landscape architect for the project.

South African travel remains in the red

21 September 2021 3:34 PM

Guest: Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa | CEO at Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA)

Analysts predicted South Africa to be removed from the red list - but this was unfortunately not the case. Petitions from citizens, appeals from the South African government and corporate pressures - to no avail.
South Africa remains on the United Kingdom red list for travel. This imposes extremely restrictive and expensive quarantine conditions for local travelers.
Travelers who have been in a country or territory on the red list in the last 10 days will only be allowed to enter the UK if they are British or Irish nationals or have residence rights in the UK.
