Most African countries have opened up to international travel.
Each country has its own Covid-19 protocol, as do airlines and countries of origin. This rolling information page has been set up to help travellers make decisions as to when and where they can travel – without undergoing long periods of mandatory quarantine. We have included at the end an overview of protocol exercised in camps and lodges.
Do note that, depending on country:
- Entry-exit protocol is adjusting to the new variant Omicron, with the introduction of temporary measures. This will eventually settle down. See ‘stop press’ for updates in each country section below.
- Children below a certain age are likely to be exempt from following certain protocols.
- Some countries demand that ‘Travel’ is indicated as the purpose of a test.
- If in doubt, assume that the countdown to a test being invalid begins when your sample is taken.
- In the rare event that a traveller tests positive on arrival, it’s more than likely they’ll need to quarantine at designated locations at their own cost.
So, do have a browse of the below. And if you’d like to travel, please do get in touch. We can make it happen – now and in the medium and long term.
