TRAVEL DURING THE PANDEMIC:

Over recent months, travel restrictions have eased around the globe and travel is starting to flow again.

There are still restrictions in certain places and in certain countries and travelling whilst the pandemic is still on still presents risks and challenges.

We will continue to monitor the situation and make informed decisions on the level of safety on behalf of all our clients. We also encourage you to keep up to date with your own country's travel recommendations, as well as the country you hope to visit.

The vendors we use still have very thorough COVID-19 protocols in place and your safety is their (and our) number one concern.

PCR / Rapid Antigen testing will be available at the end of all of our safaris, allowing time to receive the results before you depart for home (if your home country requires you to have a negative COVID-19 test result to re-enter).

 

Current protocols:

  • South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Namibia currently only require proof of vaccination (printed copy) to enter the country (you do not need to provide a negative PCR test result). If you are unvaccinated these countries will still accept a negative PCR test, (taken within 72 hours of your outbound flight).
  • ** Botswana ** Travellers with proof of vaccination (printed copy) will be allowed to enter Botswana (without a negative PCR test result) *** HOWEVER, if you are un-vaccinated, Botswana will allow entry with proof of a negative PCR test, taken within 72 hours of your outbound flight, AND you must accept your first vaccination upon arrival into Botswana.
  • All the countries on our travel list in Africa require you to wear a mask in public places like airports and aeroplanes. The individual lodges and camps we use will have their own protocols in place which we are required to follow.
  • Wearing a mask when out in the wilderness in the safari vehicle will be a personal choice
  • We request that you bring your own masks and hand sanitiser.
  • Make sure you have travel insurance that covers the treatment of COVID-19 as well as trip cancellation insurance. WILD4 will not be held liable for any medical treatment or loss of money due to cancellations or postponements.
  • You must let us know if your country requires you to have a negative PCR or Rapid Antigen test to re-enter so that we can plan for this.
  • You will need to acknowledge that any time you choose to travel you accept the risk of contact with any disease, including COVID-19.
  • These protocols will continue to be modified as travel regulations and recommendations are changed.
  • We will update these changes here, but also please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss any concerns you might have.
