THERE IS AN OCEAN BETWEEN SAYING & DOING!

Riaan speaks passionately about his adventures, motivating and inspiring all who attend his presentations. A talk that incorporates true courage, perseverance and the right attitude to effectively lead in adversity.

THE ODYSSEY

Global explorer, Riaan Manser, is gearing up for his next adventure – a 5500-kilometer unsupported row across the Atlantic Ocean. But for this extraordinary expedition, he wants an ordinary South African to join him. No experience needed. Only guts, drive and determination.

AROUND AFRICA

Cycling an average of 90km a day, often in extreme conditions, being thrown into jail in Equatorial Guinea by aggressive and drunken border police, and facing possible death when taken hostage by drugged Liberian teenage rebels may not be a conventional idea of truly ‘living’, but, in September 2003, Riaan Manser rode out of Cape Town, determined to become the first person to circumnavigate Africa by bicycle. He thought it would take him a year it took him over two.

AROUND MADAGASCAR

Riaan travelled around Madagascar during a period of the country’s most significant political turmoil, which gave him unrivalled insight into the exotic island’s psyche and even earned him two nights in prison on suspicion of carrying out mercenary activities.

AROUND ICELAND

In March 2011 Riaan took on his next challenge – mystical Iceland and her arctic waters – with partner, Dan Skinstad, who has mild cerebral palsy. “Around Iceland on Inspiration” saw the two paddle 2300km to circumnavigate Iceland in a double sea-kayak over a five month period.
