German Ambassador, Martin Schaefer and members of the embassy have embarked on a tour around the Port Elizabeth region from 30 January – 2 February in which they have visited education initiatives, engaged with German and South African partners and stopped at academic institutions.

During the tour, Ambassador Schaefer used the embassy’s mascot, a 1970’s Volkswagen (VW) Kombi revamped to showcase German culture, language and lifestyle. Its name, #KhombiSAGermany, is a play on the isiZulu expression “Khombisa” (to show) and the nickname “Kombi” for the VW bus. The bus invited South Africans to “hop on and discover Germany”.
