Trip Highlights

Experience the sun-filled, exotic attractions of South Africa, Mozambique, and Namibia. Embark Nautica in Cape Town and sail to Mossel Bay, a town that experiences more than three hundred sunshine-filled days a year. Continue to Richards Bay, which has one of South Africa’s largest harbors, to take in gorgeous panoramic views of the sea, or consider visiting a nearby game reserve. Acacia-lined avenues and a charming waterfront draw visitors to Maputo, while British Colonial architecture reigns in Durban. The city’s promenade, the Golden Mile, offers a perfect location to enjoy the subtropical climate before continuing onward to East London, revered for its unspoiled beaches. Finally, visit the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, home to beautiful wildlife sanctuaries, and cruise to the huge natural lagoon of Walvis Bay. Although rimmed by the inhospitable Namib Desert, the bay attracts hundreds of thousands of birds, including flamingos, pelicans, and migratory species.

Meet Your Trip Host

Aneel Karnani

Professor Aneel Karnani is faculty member of the Strategy group at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. He has held visiting appointments to teach in the MBA and executive development programs at many universities including the Northwestern University, London Business School, INSEAD (France), HEC (France), CEIBS (China), Indian Business School, Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), and INCAE (Costa Rica). In addition, he has lectured in several other countries in Latin America, Middle East, Europe and Asia.

Prior to joining the University of Michigan’s faculty in 1980, he obtained his doctoral degree from the Harvard Business School. He also holds an MBA and B.Tech. (Electrical Engineering), both from India.

Professor Karnani’s interests are focused on two topics: global competition and the role of business in society. He is interested in global competition, particularly in the context of emerging economies. He studies both how local companies can compete against large multinational firms, and how multinational firms can succeed in these unfamiliar markets. Karnani’s recent research focuses on poverty reduction and the appropriate roles for the private sector, the state and civil society. He is interested in how society can strike the appropriate balance between private profits and public welfare in tackling major societal challenges. He is the author of the book Fighting Poverty Together: Rethinking Strategies for Business, Governments, and Civil Society to Reduce Poverty, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2011. This book proposes an eclectic approach to poverty reduction in which business, government, and civil society all have an important role, and argues for a paradigm shift — to focus on the poor as producers.

Karnani grew up in Khartoum, Sudan, and Mumbai, India, and has traveled extensively, including in Africa. He has been the faculty host for the UM Alumni trips to India, Chile, Tanzania and South Africa.
