Safari Anyone? Africa Says it's Ready! The ultimate socially distanced vacation

Updated: Jun 11

Africa is ready and waiting to welcome guests who want to see it pristine wilderness areas and magnificent wildlife. Those promoting a return to safari's suggest that "A safari in Africa is a perfect exercise in social distancing, away from the crowds, lodges will have fewer people per game drive vehicle, dining is more personal with fewer diners to attend to, making for an intimate safari experience. So sit back and imagine an African Safari - it may well be true, probably one of the best ways to social distance is “In the African Bush!” Especially if you are young, healthy, free of pre-conditions or have already survived COVID-19, your chances of dying of the coronavirus after contracting it in Africa, would probably not be much greater than your chances of getting struck by lightening.

You arrive at your safari destination’s closest airport, where you are met and privately transferred to your secluded, intimate lodge, tucked away in the African Bush. A smaller lodge is perfect for social distancing as suites are private and far away from the next closest suite. For the extra cautious, meals can be brought to your suite so that you totally avoid other customers in the dining area.

Get ready for an exhilarating afternoon game drive which lasts between 3 - 4 4 x 4 safari vehicles with a reduced number of occupants so as to social distince inside as well as outside the vehicle.
