Eleanor Govender

Born in Cape Town, the most beautiful city in the world, Eleanor has been in the tourism industry for 16 years - ever since she left college. Her passions for food and people serve her well in her job, and she has travelled throughout South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. Eleanor loves the bushveld, but still considers herself a city slicker. When not at the office singing the praises of her beloved homeland, Eleanor loves spending time with her family, soaking up the sun and enjoying meals around the kitchen table.
