We caught up with Tshepo Lebeko, Senior Systems Engineer at Sasria SOC Ltd. Here’s what he had to say.. 









What is your favourite travel childhood memory?

I was probably 14. My mother took myself, sister and late cousin to Bela Bela. We drove from the Eastrand. Everything about it touches my heart to date. We had a blast as a family. My mother let me drive her car back from the Bela Bela. Without a licence nor learners so that was cool.


What is your favourite holiday destination?

I honestly do not travel much but for the places I been to, Cape Town takes the spot. The place is beautiful and clean.


What is the best way to sleep on a plane?

I have only been on a plane once when I went to Cape Town. I was excited, anxious and terrified to just sleep. I was awake pumping music on my phone and checking the clouds out.


What is your top travel tip?

Make sure you focus on enjoying and making the most of the place. Minimise updating your social media account every second.

What country has the best food?
