The best part of all is that we have just sent a family of six to this stunning penthouse in Cape Town for a 7-Day / 6-Night stay . . . and for all six, in ‘high-season’, the price was $4,999 – yes, for ALL 6 for 6 nights!

So, want to go to Cape Town?

Theewaterskoof Municipality in the Cape Overberg is planning to launch the Cape Country Meander in September 2010, a self-drive route to showcase the region's wine, nature, adventure and sport attractions. Theewaterskloof is an agricultural region covering the towns of Grabouw, Villiersdorp, Botrivier, Grenadendal, Greyton, Caledon, Tesslesdal, and Riversonderend.

Visitors making their way along the south Cape coast to explore the Atlantic coastline, before heading off to the Garden Route, often overlook these towns.

To improve the area's competitiveness in the tourism industry, the Theewaterskloof Municipality has announced it is planning to launch the Cape Country Meander Route in September 2010. Simultaneously, a multi-pronged tourism development strategy to revive and transform the local economy, and that will benefit local communities, SMME’s (small-medium micro enterprises), and tourism product and service providers, is being implemented.

The region of Theewaterskloof is recognised for its fruit and wine farms. Elgin and Grabouw together comprise the apple-growing centre of the Cape, and Bot River’s Chenin Blanc wines win international awards.

The area lends itself to outdoor sports like mountain biking, hiking, cross-country marathons, water skiing, boating and fishing. A number of towns on the route fall within the Cape Floral Kingdom World Heritage Site, giving visitors access to the Green Mountain Eco Route (the world’s first biodiverse wine route) and the Groenland Mountain Conservancy in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve.

Under the theme ‘revive your love of touring’, the Cape Country Meander Route will be marketed as a self-drive discovery experience as opposed to a typical A to B route. Wine, nature and adventure sport enthusiasts looking to get out of town and explore country back roads, will be able to design their own itinerary, and travel at their own pace, using the variety of attractions and accommodation options along the route.

Compared to other regions in the Overberg, Theewaterskloof is underdeveloped and largely undiscovered. It's this ‘barefoot and unplugged’ quality that the region's stakeholders hope will lure new local and international visitors to the area.

Join us and millions of others around the world as we celebrate MANDELA DAY 2010

I am honored to have lived my life at the same time as Madiba! I am honored to be learning lessons from a living legend and not from an historical account. I am humbled to have had the pleasure of meeting Madiba on several occasions throughout my life, the first time even before his presidency.

I am grateful that 'my' life path has been illuminated by the simple yet profound lessons and teachings of this extraordinarily wise man.

Today being his birthday, my personal wish for Madiba is a year filled with comfort, joy, and a gentle amber glow of love and peace - that which he has bestowed upon us all!

Thank you seems so little Mr. President, but it comes from a heart filled with inspiration, admiration, and an unwavering respect.

“In this ‘electronic age’ with so many very smart, talented people able to communicate to a broader audience, winning South African Tourism’s Journey of Discovery Tour Operator Initiative, feels like winning an ‘Academy Award’!” said Founder & President Kenneth R. Hieber.

"I am well aware that we submitted our proposal alongside some wonderfully talented and highly qualified travel professionals," he said, "and I feel honored that South African Tourism has acknowledged my company for its proposal."

Being South African by nativity, Hieber, now a naturalized American citizen still acknowledges that his heart remains in Africa and more definitively, South Africa.

The portal for the 2AFRIKA, INC.’s submission was Hieber’s recently introduced ANOTHER COUNTRY THROUGH MY EYES, a telecast devoted to introducing his homeland to travelers worldwide.

"Thank you sincerely to the panel of judges," he added, "for recognizing the potential of 2AFRIKA, INC. and ANOTHER COUNTRY THROUGH MY EYES, and for selecting us as one of your eight winners. You can rest assured that we will do you proud and that we will give the traveling public our very best and most personal attention at all times."

Hieber plans to launch his company’s 'initiative' in specific phases starting Monday July 12th, 2010.
