We piloted the idea of a ‘learning journey’ in 2015, taking a group of amazing and diverse people from seven countries to the Arctic to learn about climate change in Svalbard, the worlds’ Northernmost permanent human population. We learned a lot, created community, shared ideas and listened to each other’s challenges, and came away with a renewed sense of commitment and urgency for saving our beautiful, fragile planet.
The Nexus African Learning Journey took this further and aimed to offer unparalleled access to the places and people of a country recovering from social, political and racial injustices, while struggling to preserve and protect its beautiful environment and biodiversity. We curated an engaging programme featuring world-class speakers, industry experts and a high-end experience rooted in authentic and meaningful conversations.
This journey was for anyone who was interested in learning more about social change and environmental conservation, providing a safe space and a unique community to support individual and collaborative efforts to address the challenges our generation faces in the world today.
Places on the Nexus African Learning Journey were very limited and were assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. What follows is some basic information, including an overview of the itinerary (minus some surprises we had in store!). Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Participants were responsible for their own travel and visas to/from Johannesburg at their own cost. All in-country transportation was by private taxi, minibus and private plane and was covered in the participation fee.
Food & Accommodation
While in Johannesburg we stayed at the 5-star Melrose Arch Hotel, a trendy hotel in the fashionable and upscale Melrose Arch precinct that offered luxury with a dynamic, design-led African vibe. We then spent time “in the bush” at Londolozi, the best private reserve in the country, known for providing an unrivalled safari experience and being highly engaged in community development and conservation efforts. All food and most drinks in-country were provided, including some of the best restaurants in town.
