Web Development - Database Driven Website

Much more than website… a complete integrated communication and content management system...

Gondwana has been developing database driven websites and content management systems (CMS) for the last 14 years in Africa and in Europe, in fact since the internet has changed the way we work.

Gondwana is continuously watching the competitive web environment in order to build websites that work for its clients.

This expertise is concentrated in our new website engine (php/mysql) that drives all our dynamic sites.

rank at top of search engines

All our websites come optimized for Google and other search engines.  We also offer specialised search engine optimisation (SEO) services. 

clean, fast and easy to navigate

The golden rule : less than 3 clicks and less than 3 seconds to make a first impression and grab the visitor attention.

quick and easy to update

All our websites are dynamic sites or database driven sites that allow clients to change the content (text & media) from anywhere.
