Braam Malherba
From early on in his school days, he dreamt up and completed extraordinary distance runs to raise awareness and funds for conservation. Staying true to his passion, he has been involved in counter poaching operations as an Honorary Ranger for SANParks, co-founded the Table Mountain National Park’s Volunteer Firefighting unit, and is actively involved in numerous NGOs, conservation groups and making it his life’s mission to fight poaching, environmental irresponsibility and the destruction of our precious natural resources.  


For the past 15 years, Braam has worked extensively as a youth developer, facilitating outdoor leadership camps where he teaches children about their place in nature and survival skills. Through his guidance Braam empowers them to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. His mottos are: “the greatest gift in life is giving” and “nothing is impossible if you have big dreams”.


In 2006, he put his conviction to the test. Against our country’s top medical and sport experts’ advice, Braam Malherbe and running partner David Grier achieved a world first by running the entire length of the Great Wall of China, a distance of 4, 218 kms, at a pace of a marathon a day for 98 days. This expedition funded the inaugural mission for Operation Smile in South Africa, an international charity organization providing corrective surgery for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate disfigurements.


Only two years later in 2008, after serious knee surgery and his doctors saying he’d never run again, Braam and David completed another world first by running a “Smile around South Africa”, following the entire coastline from Namibia to Mozambique, a distance of 3,278 kms. Through these achievements in excess of R2.5 million was raised for Operation Smile. He proved yet again, that with a great purpose and conviction, our mind can overcome all imposed limitations.


He currently presents on the SABC2 nature programme 50/50. In his series, “Get Connected with Braam”, he motivates the audience to become aware of and appreciate the connection we all have with animals and our natural world. As one of South Africa’s most sought after motivational speakers, Braam leaves his audiences not only inspired but empowered to embracing change as a process to greater personal fulfilment.


He is taking the on-going assault on our country’s rhino population very personally and – in line with his lifelong campaign for the preservation of our planet’s biodiversity – is heading an international crusade to protect our precious wildlife.


Braam received the prestigious Men’s Health Unsung Hero Award for 2010 and has recently been made the Woolworths “My Planet” ambassador. To add to all of his accolades, he received the prestigious SABC 3 Enviropaedia Eco Logic Award in the category of ‘Eco Warrior’ in 2012.


At the age of 54, Braam believes that ‘desperate times call for desperate measures’ and thus decided to take part in a 768 km unassisted ski race (along with his friend, Peter Van Kets) to the South Pole in December 2011/January 2012. They finished in 3rd place, after only learning to ski 8 weeks prior to their departure to Antarctica.
Braam (with Peter) feature in a 90 minute documentary, highlighting human impact on the most remote of places, along with the rest of the planet over the past 100 years.


Whilst representing South Africa in the Scott / Amundsen Centenary race, Braam never falters at continuing to challenge the rest of us:


“TO DO ONE THING: TO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE FOR OUR PLANET AND TO HAVE SOMETHING TO LEAVE FOR OUR CHILDREN TO SMILE ABOUT!”


“There is no way I can thank you enough for the impact you had on our students during the ISCE. The message you sent and the experiences you discussed are absolutely incredible and inspiring. You are a true role model, not only in your accomplishments, but also your character and generosity. I know you are extremely busy, and the fact that you willingly took time out of your schedule in order to join us in China is amazing; and I truly appreciate how much you integrated yourself into the conference, and got to know all of the students. ”
