TODAY IS A SUPER TUESDAY - A Message from Kenneth Hieber of 2AFRIKA, INC.

February 02, 2008

Hello ‘Everyone’ – as always, I do hope that my message finds you and yours well today.

So very often we are asked the following question – ‘Your prices are so cheap – what’s wrong?’ – and over and over again we explain our theory of Keeping Africa Affordable.

In an ongoing effort to indicate the point, I have an example to share with you.

Recently, I was surfing the web looking to see who was doing what relative to travel arrangements to my Continent. One particular example stood out – an 11-Day ‘Luxury Escorted Journey to South Africa and the Victoria Falls’ – price . . . per person sharing accommodation is $5,995.00 + 4 flights required through the itinerary at the cost of $895.00 per person bringing the total per person to $6,890.00 EXCLUDING the international airfare to get to and from South Africa. Add the air from the U.S. to that amount and you have a final cost of $8,090.00 per person.

That really got me to re-thinking why I came here to the US way back in 1995. My primary goal then remains unchanged 13 years later – steadfastly Keeping Africa Affordable! So I started my own calculations.
I took the journey that I saw online for $8,090.00 and using our business model, I repriced it in a mirrored fashion, comparing apples-with-apples, eliminating nothing, substituting nothing . . . keeping everything exactly as I read it – and again, my tried-and-tested business model comes out on top, in your favor.

Elsewhere you would pay $8,090.00 per person.

Here at the original 2AFRIKA, INC. the identical journey will cost you from only $5,995.00 per person INCLUDING the round trip flights originating and terminating from New York City’s John F. Kennedy International or Washington D.C.’s Dulles International. That represents a mammoth saving of $4,190.00 per couple!

Yes – you read that correctly - $5,995.00 per person INCLUDING round trip air from the U.S.

Incredible isn’t it? Now let’s revisit the question ‘What’s Wrong?’ . . . I have said it before and I will say it again, and again, and again – the original 2AFRIKA, INC. strives to Keep Africa Affordable and under my leadership that will remain the core value of this company.

You see – the original 2AFRIKA, INC. was founded on a basic moral principle – honesty and integrity in business – a basic principal that isn’t abundant these days unfortunately.

You might ask why I keep doing this! I shall answer!

Africa is my home. I was born there and raised there. I know it intimately and I love it – and I want to share it with you. As the weeks proceed, you are going to see more and more changes throughout my product portfolio. We have become well known for Budget Travel over the past 13-years and now I intend to become well known for Affordable Luxury Travel setting the bench mark a little higher by the day. Here at the original 2AFRIKA, INC. my qualified associates are constantly being motivated to ‘think without limits’ in order to bring you, your significant other and your family and friends an Affordable Luxury African Experience’.

I hope that you enjoy the read, the product but most importantly, the Journey!

As always, we stand poised to assist you with evolving your African Safari from a mere dream!

With warm African wishes to you!

Kenneth R. Hieber
