WhyAfrica’s magazine printed and packed for African road trip

The April issue of WhyAfrica’s magazine is out and now available in print as well! Readers will be able to hold it in their hands for the first time since we started publishing the magazine last year.

The magazine will be handed out across South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana during WhyAfrica’s Southern Africa Overland Road Trip in June and July 2022.

If you prefer the digital version and are a subscriber, you will receive our Indaba issue in your inbox the week before the show. If you haven’t subscribed yet, please send me your details, or head to our website to register as soon as possible.

Remember if you want to advertise in the road trip issue, it is not too late! We will have a print re-run at the end of May, so there is still more than enough time to send us your marketing material.

We have confirmed close to 28 site visits and more than 30 interviews for our road trip and more sponsors have come onboard. There are only a few sponsorship opportunities available, so if you want to be involved, contact me before the end of May. You can get more information and all the details about our exciting WhyAfrica Southern Africa Overland Road Trip on the WhyAfrica website.

You can also advertise in the August/October issue of the WhyAfrica magazine, which promises to be a showstopper. The entire magazine will be dedicated to our road trip experience, so look out for in-depth analysis, great photos, and balanced reporting about what is happening on the ground in these countries. We focus on mining, energy, infrastructure, agriculture, water management, ESG, environmental management, tourism, and conservation.

Do not forget to follow WhyAfrica on Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. We aim to produce video snippets, updates, and daily reports during our trip through Southern Africa, so if you want to stay updated about what’s happening at grassroots level, you know what to do.

More detailed and in-depth research reports will be available to buy next year, as well as my book about the politics of doing business in Southern Africa, with a big focus on the trip in June and July.

Remember that WhyAfrica is attending the Nampo agricultural show, also in May, so if agriculture is your business and you want to know more about what we do at WhyAfrica, do not hesitate to give me a call.
