Our itineraries for executive arrangements are customized and tailored to suit the particular needs of the individual corporate client, perfectly. Together with our trusted partners in South Africa and Southern Africa, we pride ourselves on being experts at designing and managing events for a global corporate clientele.
Services include organizing board and top executive meetings, bespoken small conferences and challenging team-building events. Through our network, we arrange for highly professional speakers from the world’s leading business schools, or who rank among the very best in their chosen field – talented explorers, photographers, scientists, filmmakers – to share their adventures and be a source of inspiration.
Southern Africa provides ample accommodation for executive conferences in cosmopolitan cities, the Winelands of South Africa or the breathtaking pristine wilderness – a range of luxurious retreats in which to relax in elegant style while focusing on corporate matters.
A combination of majestic natural scenery and modern facilities makes Southern Africa the ideal destination in which to inspire innovative thinking and a renewed sense of team building.
With discreet, personal service and impeccable standards, our clients are assured a truly unforgettable experience.
The natural world as we know it is in crisis, and Africa’s mega fauna is not exempt. For our corporate clients, we identify high impact projects that protect Africa’s majestic creatures – projects that deliver a meaningful outcome to all stakeholders.
As an upshot of our personal engagement, we have acquired extensive experience and insight into the immeasurable value conservation projects contribute towards saving the last remaining mega fauna in Southern Africa, and their benefit to mankind in the long run.
A brand strategy audit will allow us to align your values with relevant conservation projects that are in harmony with your brand and your CSR ambitions. Such projects will provide an efficient communication tool that supports your brand in building closer relationships with your staff, your customers and your community.
By engaging in an African conservation project, you can let your company act as a beacon of inspiration – working towards a more sustainable tomorrow.
We look forward to being of service in matching your corporation with a suitable conservation project.

Speeches & Presentations
We are passionate about sharing our story of Sub-Saharan Africa of today, of new experiences, new knowledge, new insights and a sense of new identity – while never losing site of the more traditional aspects of Africa.
Stars of Africa offers inspiring, informative speeches and presentations about our travels to Africa – narratives supported by our own photographic archives and based on our numerous and extensive journeys throughout this fascinating continent. Not only do our presentations reflect the vast, varied nature of Africa, its iconic wildlife and vibrant cultures, but they also introduce our audience to modern day Africa – with its world-renowned wines and contemporary, dynamic and innovative art scene.

Workshops & Seminars
BRAND SAFARI – THE BUSINESS WORLD
MEETS THE AFRICAN WILDERNESS
Leidenkrantz & Partners, an international management consulting firm, with the focus on Corporate Branding, works in close collaboration with Stars of Africa to conduct Brand Safaris. A Brand Safari is a concept that we jointly offer corporate clients that find themselves on a transformational journey and wish to ignite energy and passion into the change process.
The underlying reasons for carrying out a Brand Safari may vary, but it is an ideal activity for concluding a corporate merger, or as part of a strategic corporate brand revitalization or transformation plan. Its purpose is to create employee and management commitment to a new company strategy, in an entertaining, engaging setting.
During the event, corporate challenges are put in an evolutionary and human survival context. With the help of metaphors from life in the wilderness, narratives, tribal symbols, rituals and behaviour are used as inspiration to create insight into, and acceptance of the inevitable challenges and opportunities in the corporate journey ahead.
For companies that choose to do so, a brand strategy audit will allow us to align the company’s values with relevant African conservation projects that are in synchrony with the company brand and CSR ambitions. Such projects provide an efficient communication tool that supports the brand in building closer relationships with customers, employees and the local community. A good story highlighting just how the company accepts its corporate citizenship responsibility adds value and creates a sense of both internal and external commitment and pride.
By engaging in an African conservation project, your company can act as a beacon of inspiration – working towards that vital goal – a more sustainable tomorrow.
A Brand Safari can be executed in groups of 50 individuals to several thousand at a time, with a session lasting about three hours.
