Born and raised in the Republic of South Africa. Started my ‘life’ in the (boring) world of finance, which lasted for a year before I got a lucky break and became a Travel Agent with the prestigious company, Thomas Cook Travel. My career path took me to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, American Express Travel and then eventually to my own company, The Travel Consultant, a Pretoria based retail Travel Company that specialized in outbound leisure and corporate travel.
Incorporated in 1984, The Travel Consultant grew to become a multi-million Rand operation at which time I (seeking another life challenge) relocated to the United States to start 2AFRIKA, INC. in 1995. 2AFRIKA, INC. instantly became recognized at the leader in Affordable Travel to Africa by virtue of the fact that I had (and retain) many close business relationships back in my native Africa. Fourteen years later, 2AFRIKA, INC. continues to grow in leaps and bounds retaining a very ‘personal experience’ with its valued passengers and constantly adapting to retain its initial philosophy – KEEP AFRICA AFFORDABLE!
Frequently endorsed by Arthur Frommer and his daughter Pauline Frommer, as well as Peter Greenberg, 2AFRIKA, INC. has been privileged to having been a prominent feature in BUDGET TRAVEL, USA TODAY, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, THE WASHINGTON POST, CNN, MSNBC, VOICE OF AMERICA, THE NEW YORK TIMES and many more regional, national and international publications – and to these powerful and influential media sources, I extend my sincerest gratitude!
