Phoenix Organized Activities


PHOENIX COUNTRY HOUSE collaborating with VOKAL, invites you to engage with women icons of Africa in intimate dialogues held on a quarterly basis. On the continent, African women are coming into their own. They are valuing their own knowledge (VOKAL) and developing more confidence in their abilities as thought and opinion influencers who can lead global conversations on Africa’s and the world’s most pressing challenges. 

South Africa is the continent’s gateway and its famed Garden Route, on the Indian Ocean, offers the perfect backdrop for engaging women leaders and thinkers from across the continent who defy the prevailing image of African women as powerless and perpetually in need of rescue and charity. 

VOKAL invites potential dialogue subscribers to connect and collaborate with African women leaders on constructing peace, combating climate change, promoting good governance and respect for the rule of law, educating and nurturing Africa’s youth, building community wealth and celebrating African creativity and thought models.

At Phoenix Country House, situated majestically overlooking the Indian Ocean in Knysna, South Africa, dialogue participants and the featured speaker are treated to authentic African hospitality and cuisine during the first half of the experience.  In the second half, VOKAL facilitators help dialogue subscribers to further process what emerged from their dialogue with the featured speaker and reflect on how they might engage with the issues raised going forward. This one day experience can be combined with a choice of other more traditional African tours, including adventure tours, community tours and wildlife.

As travelers throughout the world look to experience more meaningful encounters, VOKAL dialogues offer dialogue subscribers the chance to engage with and support the vision of women icons of Africa with ideas, influence, networks, time or more. Subscribers can also explore how they can benefit from this engagement. Come join us.

VOKAL Dialogues are held on a quarterly basis.  

Confirmed Speakers so far for 2020 are: 

    • Ms. Joyce Banda, the former President of Malawi (February)
    • Ms. Eve Bazaiba, the first woman to lead a major political party and chair a parliamentary committee in DR Congo (May)
