Lisa Sebogodi: African Travel 100 Women Winner
Lisa Sebogodi is the Managing Director of Batsumi Travel, founded in 2010, and the brainchild of sole owner Lisa Sebogodi. The company is a 100% black female owned agency and a Level 1 BEE Contributor. We are an accredited, endorsed and licensed travel agency with IATA, ASATA, SAACI and EXSA.
Contributing to the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality industry for over eighteen years; I pair my passion for travel with knowledge and experience, having worked with Africa’s leading hotel group, Protea Hotels as well as HRG Rennies Travel.
My understanding of business operations and customer relationships ensures that Batsumi Travel continues to deliver a service that is a cut above the industry norm, an intimate service. Batsumi Travel and its key personnel brings a combined travel industry experience of over 40 years.
Batsumi Travel’s success is attributable to my resilience and determination to succeed being one of the pillars I have had in my life.
My greatest contribution to South African society has been job creation in an economy which has the highest unemployment rate. I gave up my comfortable salary and have since created salaries for 27 other people (27 jobs have impacted 81 lives). I am a true young entrepreneur, an inspiration to the youth and woman of South Africa and the world.
