South African Minister of Tourism and Amb. Kingsley Makhubela, Director General, was hosted by Ms. Thandiwe January-McLean, Chief Executive Officer of South African Tourism, Ms. Sthu Zungu, President North America of South African Tourism and Mr. Peter Greenberg, Master of Ceremonies.

"The evening was enchanting," Hieber said, "and I will display our UBUNTU AWARD prominently and very proudly in our offices as a reminder that All Things Are Possible."

2AFRIKA has operated in the United States since the summer of 1995 and specializes in affordable tours and safaris to Africa, which is where Hieber was born and raised before relocating to the United States of America.

"Will you strive at continue doing your best at keeping Africa affordable?" a reporter asked Hieber to which the response was a warm smile and a sincere "Of course we will."

Hieber plans to slash tour and safari prices to Africa for a limited period while as he puts it "I am still glowing."
