The Gateway to Africa

Newly added to the BRICS nations, the most dominant economy south of the Sahara is receiving global attention from businesses interested in breaking into Africa. Despite tremendous growth in recent years, many cultural and political struggles create major hurdles in the country’s push forward. After this tour, travelers leave with a completely new view of a country riddled in misconception.

You will learn how small businesses make a large impact by meeting local business owners within the townships of Cape Town. Travelers walk through the Langa township, gaining a deeper understanding of ongoing issues in the poorest communities of South Africa. Additionally, the South African tour has a large focus on learning about the Apartheid and understanding the impact of the government’s regime on modern day business practice.

The ultimate goal of the South African tour is for you to truly witness the growth of an emerging market in a young stage of development.
