Introducing your Hosts
Roger and Joyce Madison lived in South Africa for 3 years -- from 1995 to 1998 -- immediately after the transition to a democratic nation, where they both worked for IBM. They enjoyed their work and developed many business and personal relationships. Their lives were never the same after working closely with South Africans to build the "New South Africa."
Following their return to the USA, they formed a nonprofit missionary organization and traveled back to South Africa for 10 years as missionaries -- helping to build churches and improve the living conditions in townships across the country.
They retired from IBM and established iZania, LLC to continue their efforts to connect the descendants of Africa via the Internet. During a trip to the Soccer World Cup in 2010, they met and established a business relationship with Robert Mashau, the owner of Bono Safaris and Tours. Out of this partnership, iZania Travel Services was created.
