As we head into the weekend we thought we would get you off to a good start with some positive news…. Our beloved South Africa has opened her borders!!! All international travel will resume (guests must simply provide a valid certificate of a negative COVID-19 test obtained not more than 72 hours before the date of travel).
In fact, much of our continent is currently open to international travel and after a very challenging year, I am sure that many of you are very eager to take some time out in the splendor of Africa’s wildlife areas.
With borders open and vaccines on the horizon, now is an excellent time to benefit from uncharacteristically quiet wildlife destinations and price-saving specials the safari industry has on offer. It is worth mentioning that you do not need to feel any guilt capitalizing on the various specials on offer, in truth, this is something to feel extremely proud of, as these specials are on offer to help this important component of conservation to recover from the pressure that a lack of tourism has placed on it.
Best wishes for the weekend ahead!
Warm regards from Simon, Jen and the Bellingham team
