News release from GAY 2AFRIKA:


GAY 2AFRIKA, INC., Virgin Atlantic Airways, and Kenya Airways join forces to launch a 16-day Memorial Day 2010 Safari to Kenya and Tanzania "exclusively" for the Gay and Lesbian Community

NEW YORK, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- GAY 2AFRIKA, INC., Virgin Atlantic Airways, and Kenya Airways have launched a fully escorted 16-day safari to Kenya and Tanzania for Gay and Lesbian singles, couples, and families, departing from the United States on Tuesday, May 18, 2010.

COME SEE THE PARADISE visits Nairobi, the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, Amboseli National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park, Olduvai Gorge, the Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire National Park.

Scheduled round-trip air services with Virgin Atlantic Airways and Kenya Airways routed New York City (JFK) / London / Nairobi / London / New York City (JFK) are included in the unbeatable price of $4,699 p/p + tax of $295. At no additional price, passengers can join COME SEE THE PARADISE from Newark, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.

All transfers and accommodation, 36 meals and 17 safari game viewing drives are included and COME SEE THE PARADISE will be accompanied by a GAY 2AFRIKA Tour Manager from New York City.

Apart from no add-on fares from Virgin Atlantic Airways gateway cities in the U.S., there is no single supplement applicable, making COME SEE THE PARADISE an attractive safari for Gay & Lesbian singles who prefer the privacy of their own accommodation.

Fully escorted from New York City, GAY 2AFRIKA permits passengers to depart ahead of time if they wish and break their journey in London for an additional charge of only $95 p/p per stop. In addition, passengers should consider extending their safari and visiting nearby Zanzibar for a short "beach-break" before returning back to the United States.

"Finally, a fully escorted safari to Kenya and Tanzania for the Gay & Lesbian community," said the company's Founder and President, Kenneth R. Hieber. "At this unbeatable price, I would hope that Gay and Lesbian singles and couples take full advantage of realizing their African Dream with like-minded people. Since space is limited, I encourage passengers to sign-up as quickly as possible," Hieber stated. It is Hieber's hope that Gay and Lesbian families take full advantage of this exciting offer. "I can think of no more exciting safari than one made up of Gay and Lesbian singles, couples and families," he concluded at today's press conference in New York.


GAY 2AFRIKA, INC. is the only African-gay-owned and operated Safari Specialist Company in the United States. The company's portfolio has been meeting the discerning taste of the LGBT Community for 14 years and is fully conversant in the likes and dislikes of the Gay and Lesbian traveler.
