Travel Returns (23rd May 2022): As we head into the high season in Africa, where the dry weather across East and Southern Africa creates some of the most dramatic and prolific wildlife viewing in the World we are delighted to announce that ALL of our destinations have eliminated the need for ‘testing to enter’ if you are fully vaccinated against covid – most of you will also be living in countries which don’t require a test to return either, so now we’re getting back to ‘normal’. We do still have everything in place to offer PCR or Rapid Antigen tests in our camps should you need it.
COVID-19 Statement from The Luxury Safari Co (27th Nov 2021): We are shocked and horrified by the recent treatment of Southern Africa due to a variant which is showing no evidence of being more deadly or transmissible. We are working closely with all our clients to postpone their carefully crafted safaris and hope these cruel and unnecessary measures will be removed within the coming weeks. The safari industries heart is broken at the moment, and we thank all our lovely clients for their support and well wishes, we will ride this new storm with the same determination we have shown over the last two years.
COVID-19 Statement from The Luxury Safari Co (Oct 2021): We are thrilled to report that much of East and Southern Africa have focussed their vaccine implementation on those who work in tourism, thereby keeping staff and guests safe while on safari – a much needed part of their economy. All of our countries are OPEN. They are currently receiving our guests from the USA, UAE, Europe & the UK – all of whom are having the most incredible time.
It is worth noting that all of our luxury safari camps have excellent COVID protocols in place to keep everyone safe, and that a safari is the most naturally socially distanced holiday in the world.
COVID-19 Statement from The Luxury Safari Co (Jan 2021): East and Southern Africa have been extremely lucky in receiving only the lowest transmission rates for this devastating virus – on top of this a luxury safari is naturally socially distanced and our camps and lodges have the strictest and most efficient safety protocols in place, which keep you and the staff safe but do not impact on the magical moments which make up a safari.
Some of our UK, USA, French and Italian guests have been in Kenya, Zambia and Tanzania over the last three months and have had the most amazing time – see Reviews. We have also had our journalist Katie Jackson fly to Zambia from the USA and Rose has flown out from the UK – watch their updates on Zambia and Zimbabwe on our Reviews page. Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa & Namibia are open and welcoming most Nationalities with open arms – we can assist you with travel insurance and covid testing with ease – just ask.
COVID-19 Statement from The Luxury Safari Co (14th Aug 2020): Rose has just returned from an assessment safari to Kenya – watch the collection of reports on a Kenya Safari & Beach trip post covid by clicking here. Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia & Madagascar are open, watch this space!
COVID-19 Statement from The Luxury Safari Co (7th July 2020): Rose is back from Tanzania having had an incredible time, please click here to watch the collated video of Rose’s findings OR follow our social media outlets to look back over videos where she talks you through taking a safari in 2020 post the COVID pandemic.
COVID-19 Statement from Rose Hipwood, MD (1st April 2020): We are so sorry we can’t get you out on safari in Africa right now. We’re busy developing some truly once in a lifetime safaris to blow you away with once we are allowed to travel. As a company we are financially stable, as are our partners in Africa – due to this we have turned our attention to giving significant financial help to charities supporting community and wildlife conservation, both at home and in our beloved Africa. Please feel free to contact us regarding future trips, which we are offering flexible booking conditions on, or just to talk about luxury safaris as something to keep you busy.
