Dear Friends and Guests of Go2Africa,
With the continued impact of COVID-19 on global travel and the still ever-changing circumstances, the Go2Africa team is focused on the safety of our guests, both current and future. The situation in Africa is still very fluid with some destinations being open or opening selectively, and several markets still being closed. (To see our updated tracker of travel restrictions by country, go here).
We’re happy to share a handful of our clients have been travelling through Tanzania in July and August and have reported great comfortability with the health and safety precautions, and we have many new clients booking for 2021! Read our blog on why safari is still one of the safest ways to travel.
To date, our team has been working tirelessly to assist all our booked travellers in deferring their trips out to 2021 in order of departure as needed. It’s imperative to have things to look forward to in these unprecedented times we are in! The migrating wildebeest herds are still making their pass through the Masai Mara, wildlife are concentrating around water sources in the Okavango Delta, and whales are arriving to mate and give birth off South Africa’s coastline.
We've been heartened to witness over 90% of our clients deferring their trips, a very important element in ensuring our partner lodges and camps continue their conservation efforts and support the communities in which they operate. They play a very important role in everything from managing anti-poaching to employing people in regions where paying one person often means feeding 10 mouths; with our travellers rescheduling their trips, these important initiatives remain intact.
- If you are traveling in late September/October our goal is to be in touch with you over the next few weeks.
- If you are due to travel in the coming weeks and we have not been able to connect with you yet, please contact your Africa Safari Expert immediately to talk through the options available to you.
- For any clients outside of this time frame, please feel free to get in contact with your Africa Safari Expert who continues to be your point of contact before, during and after your travels. We are feeling the positive momentum here in Africa and believe most, if not all, of our destinations will be open by the end of the year (subject to travel restrictions in your country of origin).
Since 1998 we have successfully navigated various crises and global disruptions and are committed to creating once in a lifetime trips while supporting conservation, communities, and sustainability in Africa, now more than ever.
