“I have had the great fortune of traveling to and speaking in South Africa. My wife and I toured South Africa for 3 weeks on a game Safari to enjoy the wonderful wildlife and South African Savannahs. I have a sincere love and passion for motivational speaking, especially when it takes me to such a wonderful country like South Africa. The richness of the animals, scenic beauty, and the South African people are what made my trips memorable experiences.

Johannesburg, also known as Jozi, Jo’burg or Egoli, is the largest city in South Africa (by population) and is the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in South Africa. With almost 4 million residents, Johannesburg is also the world’s largest city not situated on a river, lake or coastline. In a city that is rich in both Dutch and native culture, meeting venues in Johannesburg offer groups an eclectic mix of amenities to suit all tastes and budgets.
Johannesburg is served by O.R. Tambo International Airport, the largest and busiest airport in Africa and a gateway for international air travel to and from the rest of Southern Africa. (More recently Lanseria International Airport, situated conveniently on the opposite side of the city, has started international flights.)
Visitors to Johannesburg will enjoy its rich history and colorful past. Spend an afternoon at the Apartheid Museum where its newest exhibit celebrates the life of Nelson Mandela, who was freed from his 26-year jail sentence in 1991. Explore the many bohemian restaurants in Melville; and don’t miss the Lion Park, established in 1966 by the world-famous Chipperfields Circus. A mere 40 minutes-drive from Johannesburg, it is conveniently situated in the Gauteng-Tshwane complex. Neither a game reserve nor a zoo, the Lion Park is split into two areas – one area for the herbivores such as zebra, giraffe, and various plains antelope and other grass-eating animals; and a carnivore area that houses three prides of lions and a clan of hyenas. (These are protected by barriers and fences to prevent the different prides from attacking one another.)
