The South African Tourism Industry is planning for a full re-open for 1 September 2020. We are receiving many updates from camps on how they individually plan to operate taking into account Covid 19. Most camps are going to work around reduced numbers in safari vehicles, extra cleaning and hygiene protocols around camps and testing for staff. This I am sure will be the standard followed by most countries in Africa.
Conservation Safaris - Making a Difference
This is our new initiative to partner with the Ivan Carter Foundation for various hands on conservation safaris that we have access to around Africa. This means by participating in these safaris you will not only be a donor but be hands on in the field during the project, this could be de-horning a rhino, putting a collar on a giraffe, or relocating a herd of elephants. An amazing opportunity for a very unique and rewarding wildlife experience. We will be posting full details of what opportunities are available to participate in.
Tanzania set to re-open for safaris
Tourism world wide has been hit hard by the current Covid situation and all countries are trying to figure out how to get tourism going again which is so important to many people and eco systems. Tanzania is first in Africa to reopen their borders and airlines have shown a willingness to support this with Swissair - Turkish - Emirates - Kenyan and Air Tanzania ready to fly from early July. The camps are adjusting the way they operate to give guests as much peace of mind as possible that they will be safe there from Covid 19. So if you have cabin fever and looking for a quick break to a premier safari country with probably not too many other people around this is a fantastic opportunity.
