WhyAfrica reports from the coalface

WhyAfrica is getting its boots dirty in 2022. After almost two years of being stuck behind our desks, we are going back to do what we do best and report from the coalface.

Next week we are in the manganese fields of the Kalahari and the historic diamond mining town of Kimberley, today the capital of the Northern Cape Province in South Africa.

During our whirlwind road trip, we will visit one or two exciting mining projects and with our ears close to the ground, determine where the opportunities will be in the future, and which solutions are necessary to solve the many challenges faced by companies in this spectacular part of the world.

In May, we are back in South Africa’s Mother City of Cape Town for the first Investing in African Mining Indaba since 2019. In June and July, we hit the road on a monster trip through the northern parts of South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, and Botswana to visit more than 40 projects in Southern Africa and report about many relevant local business stories that might be of interest to our readers who does business in this neck of the woods.

We have already confirmed most of our visits, so if your company has a story to tell in the mining, energy, agriculture, infrastructure, logistics, water, tourism, conservation, and environmental management sectors, contact us asap.

Remember, we are printing a number of WhyAfrica magazines for the first time, and they will go with us to the Mining Indaba and through Southern Africa on our road trip. There are still a few advertising and sponsorship opportunities left, but time and space are running out quickly.

We have some innovative deals that combines the WhyAfrica road trip, the Mining Indaba conference, and our other platforms, so don’t hesitate to give me a call or e-mail me for more information. If you contact and book before the end of February, we’ll give you a massive discount!
