Michaela’s Map Sneak Peek: South Africa

Posted on March 28, 2017 by MichaelaSGuzy

This is a sneak peek of our 30 minute special featuring the inspiring local people that OTPYM’s founder, Michaela, meets in her home away from home, South Africa, where her three-month solo journey that gave birth to OhThePeopleYouMeet all began.

One of her favorite African countries, one where all citizens have had the right to vote for only the past 22 years, is the same country where the artistic and culinary scenes are exploding with creative fusions of international influence with authentic injections of African culture. South Africa is leading the way for the rest of the continent through innovative tech, entrepreneurism, social good and one of Africa’s most precious resources, it’s wildlife.

Step behind the kitchen line with the chef of Cape Town’s top concept restaurant and his ever-changing tapas menu. Engage in a conservation about the importance of wildlife conservation. Visit a lesser known vineyard of talented local wine makers but walk away inspired by an unorthodox business partnership between two change makers who represent the modern South Africa.

Whether on a sustainable townships art tour to meet local artists, on walking safari to approach the BIG 5 on foot or one-on-one atop Signal Hill in Cape Town with the first man to run The Great Wall of China for a cause, Michaela never ceases to uncover the true inner beauty of a country, in order to dive deeper into the local history, culture and causes through the eyes of the inspiring local people that she meets. Please watch this sneak peek of OhThePeopleYouMeet in South Africa, we cannot wait to share our special with you.
