Tour Operators, Airlines, Prepare Gay/Lesbian Safari in Africa


GAY 2AFRIKA, INC., Virgin Atlantic Airways and Kenya Airways have joined forces and launched an escorted 16-day safari to Kenya and Tanzania for gay and lesbian singles, couples and families, departing May 18, 2010 from the U.S.

The "Come See the Paradise" safari 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.

The trip includes, roundtrip air services with Virgin Atlantic Airways and Kenya Airways routed through New York City (JFK), London, and Nairobi, London, New York City (JKF) and costs $4,699 per person plus tax of $296.

At no additional price, passengers can join Come See the Paradise from Newark, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.

All transfers and accommodations, 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 good for gay and 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 per person, 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 Kenneth R. Hieber the company's founder and president. "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.”
