As we find ourselves adjusting to a new norm, our team has been in camps serving as guardians of wildlife, patrolling the lands on foot, and most importantly getting up to date with guidelines and preventative measures going forward. We can't wait for you to come back to the wide-open spaces of Africa and get away from the crowds and away from the stress. to help ease your mind about the unknowns, we have outlined the Preventative Measures & Health Guidelines for COVID-19, we've also put together an outline of How to Plan a Safari Amidst COVID-19.
Beks recently sat with James Halstead, MD at Halstead Aviation Corporation and Simon Sawyer, CEO of Special Projects & Services to talk about medical evacuations and Emergency Procedures, watch the talk here:
Trade, modes of transport, how we interact in our work environment, and education at schools may never be the same, but humans are resilient. We learn to adapt, and sometimes, if we are good at it, we flourish.
We will continue sharing the behind-the-scenes of what's happening in nature on our Live in Camp page, keeping you all involved in our efforts to keep conservation alive.
The Coronavirus is the main topic on everyone's lips at the moment. How can it not be, as it brings the entire world to a halt? We like to be on the pulse to understand what is happening in the present and plan for a fairly uncertain future. We have teamed up with industry experts to give you insightful and entertaining topics - from photography to conservation. From April, we entered a ‘curl up’ period and decided to ‘hunker’ down for four months while assisting clients in postponing their trips. We believe that it's best to keep discussion forward-thinking to adapt and pivot to changing times. Sign up to our 'Safari Talks' newsletter to receive updates and alerts to your inbox.
Sitting around the crackling fire, replaying the day's adventure may feel like a distant memory at this stage - but we'll all be craving a good adventure at the end of this all. Until that day comes, we are here to keep you in touch with the light at the end of the tunnel, getting you through this odd time. We want to keep the reality of nature alive for you while you are sitting at home and staying safe. From recipes to poems, safari adventures to folklore - we want to reconnect you with nature. So pour yourself a gin and tonic and keep in touch with wild Africa through our eyes.
During this period of uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, African Bush Camps is committed to being as flexible as is reasonably possible in amending guest bookings, but with country specific conditions and quarantine requirements it is difficult to find a universal solution. Disruption caused to travel by Covid-19 is unfortunately the new normal for travellers.
Whilst Covid-19 conditions exist, the amended Covid-19 Terms and Conditions set out below replace all previous amendments to the Covid-19 Terms and Conditions and Section 7 (Changes, amendments or variations to the booking) and Section 8 (Cancellation Policy) of our Standard Terms and Conditions (“T&Cs”).
Guests are still required to acknowledge and accept all other terms and conditions set out in our Standard T&Cs.
Given the fluidity of world events and developments surrounding Covid-19, African Bush Camps strongly recommends Guests do not cancel their booking but postpone their once-in-a-lifetime African safari.
