Please note that some of the roads are gravel and is suitable for all vehicles but could be slippery when wet. Please do these caches only in daylight hours as these are country roads and residents would not take kindly to night geocachers.

The East London Museum is home to the world’s only surviving Dodo Egg and a reconstruction of the flightless bird that lived on the island of Mauritius. It is fitting that East London’s first Geo-Art should feature the Dodo Egg. 

It is also home to the original coelacanth - a prehistoric fish that has lived in the Indian Ocean for 400 million years, thought to be extinct for millions of years, until it was re-discovered in 1938.

To calculate the final coordinates you will need to find the answers to the undermentioned questions.
