NEW YORK, NY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2AFRIKA, INC. is without doubt an American Dream come true.
Born from an insatiable desire to Keep Africa Affordable, 2AFRIKA, INC. opened doors to the American traveler in the summer of 1995. From humble beginnings, the Company evolved into a multi-million dollar corporation in just a little over a decade.
Despite the negative connotation associated with the 'dot.com' era, 2AFRIKA, INC. is a full service Tour Operator / Travel Agency serving passengers from a global audience as well as from North America.
Our World Headquarters is located at 111 John Street in New York City, just a few minutes from Wall Street and you’re invited to stop by (appointments preferred) whenever you are in Manhattan.
Now known as 2AFRIKA, INC., the company is manned by talented and experienced people who, like the Founder & President Kenneth R. Hieber, were either born on the Continent or have visited Africa frequently for onsite training. Hieber sets the pace that drives the company and strives constantly to Keep Africa Affordable.
Others have tried in vain to clone the 2AFRIKA, INC. business model – it cannot be done. With Associates whose roots originate in Africa, we’re the only true African tour operator who can boldly claim that our passengers can rest assured that they will be dealt with by natives of the Continent whose tenure there exceeds a half-Century. That’s the type of knowledge that you need and its precisely the knowledge that we generously share.
Keeping Africa Affordable
2AFRIKA, INC. is one of the world's premier African destination management companies focusing solely on Africa. Headquartered in New York City, New York, we meticulously prepare travel arrangements to more than 18 African countries and Indian Ocean Islands. We are engaged in every aspect of African travel planning including flights, accommodations, transportation, sightseeing tours, adrenaline activities and much more. We are extremely committed to ‘Keeping Africa Affordable’ and ‘Corporate Social Responsibility in Tourism’ but most importantly, the comfort, security and safety of our valued passengers!
Our earliest roots trace back to December 1977 when our Founder & President Kenneth R. Hieber joined the tourism and hospitality industry. Native to Africa, Hieber ultimately conceived and founded South African based 'The Travel Consultant' in 1984 specializing in retail corporate and leisure travel internationally. That company later became 2AFRIKA, INC. and incorporated in the United States in 1994. Our subsequent acquisitions and positioning in the global marketplace have resulted in an African owned and operated destination management company fully focused on its original founding mission statement – Keep Africa Affordable.

Together with our diverse and highly skilled African and United States workforce, our destination management skills include but are not limited to overland safaris, family safaris, culinary safaris, fully escorted safaris, private safaris, African honeymoons, inspirational & healing safaris, city breaks, luxury rail safaris, resort & spa breaks, self-drive safaris, Diaspora cultural journeys and Rainbow safaris.
