The Chances are you are clicking on this page because you want to know what the Mana House stands for. No, I am not a wannabe aristocrat who can’t spell.

Over the last ten years I have lived in India, New Zealand, South Africa, Guatemala, Mexico and England. Currently I am living in Cape Town, South Africa… Lekker!
