Construction on the Donkin

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, through the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) is busy with a upgrade of the Donkin Reserve and the historic buildings on it. Part of the project is the restoration and upgrading of the lighthouse and the old lighthouse keeper's building which acts as a tourist information office managed by Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism. Work started on the project last week and is expected to be finished before the start of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in June. When work is done the building will, in addition to the tourist info office, also contain a small coffee and curio shop.

  2. Nice one FF, I have posted the links to this and the hotel post of your blog.

    What hotel group will take space at that hotel?

  3. Good idea - I hope having a coffee shop there will encourage more people to visit this unique monument!

    I bet this wasn't what Sir Rufane had in mind!
