    Video Vision

  • "I have used the services of East Coast Access since 2000 first as Kwando Safaris in Botswana and since 2006 as Sustainable Forestry Management in Johannesburg. The development of the relationship from providing basic email and internet support to a much more complex relationship today covering hardware, software, websites, internet access and cloud services for our offices in SA, Gabon and the UK speaks of our satisfaction with the level of competence and service. "
