Coronavirus COVID-19

17 March 2020 | Jo Jenkins | Safari and Beach News

We are sure many of you who are due to travel to Africa are concerned about your travel plans and keen to know your options.  Currently, we are contacting those who are due to travel imminently but we hope to address everyone travelling in the next 60 days as a matter of priority.  We also hope to contact those who will be entering their 60 day pre travel period as soon as possible.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is now advising Britons against all non-essential foreign travel for an initial period of 30 days.  However, many international flights are still operating but nearly all African countries now have an entry embargo or period of enforced isolation for non-residents, making travel virtually impossible.

Safari&Beach are monitoring the situation closely with regard to Covid-19 and particularly travel in Africa.  The safety and wellbeing of our clients is of paramount importance and we will continually update our response as the latest information is available, including direct advice from the UK Government and supplier policy in Africa.  We recommend your checking with the Foreign & Commonweath Office (FCO) and WHO websites who will also offer latest travel advice.
