CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) – UPDATE ON TRAVEL TO KENYA

COVID-19 Kenya Government Statement, Sunday 15th March 2020

  • The Government is suspending travel for all persons coming into Kenya from any country with reported Coronavirus cases.
  • Only Kenyan Citizens, and any foreigners with valid residence permits will be allowed to come in provided they proceed on self quarantine or to a government designated quarantine facility.This will take effect within the next 48 hours to cater for any passengers who may be enroute. This directive will remain in effect for the next 30 days or as varied by the National Emergency Response Committee.
  • All persons who have come into Kenya in the last 14 days must self-quarantine. If any person exhibits symptoms such as cough, or fever, they should present themselves to the nearest health facility for testing.

Gamewatchers Safaris: Flexible booking terms for customers planning to travel once the Kenya government allows visitors to come back on safari and beach holidays.
With the continued spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) to many countries in the world, including in North America and Europe, we understand the anxieties that many prospective travellers may have at this time and are fully sympathetic to those concerns. We are monitoring the situation closely and follow the advice of the World Health Organisation, international governments and the Kenyan authorities.

As a result of the government announcement to suspend travel into Kenya from infected countries for 30 days, we are temporarily revising our booking terms and conditions as follows for anyone booked to travel  within the next 30 days or to travel between 1 to 6 months from now:

• For people travelling in the next 30 days, for those in infected countries who are no longer able to travel to Kenya, we can postpone the booking and carry forward any prepayment to be used as a credit towards a new date of travel at a later time within the next 12 months once the restriction has been lifted to allow travel from the customer’s country.

• For those booked to travel in 1 to 6 months’ time (31 to 180 days) for anyone anxious or uncertain about travelling, we will agree to postponement with no amendment fee. For those postponing, we will allow payments made so far to be carried forward to later dates within 12 months of the originally booked date, subject to availability and added cost if there are seasonal differences in cost if travel is in a different season from the date originally booked.

The Kenyan government had already introduced a number of measures to prevent or limit the spread of the virus into Kenya including suspending flights from some countries, screening of arriving passengers at the airport and testing persons with a temperature or symptoms of a cold or flu. The latest move by the government is to suspend visits into Kenya by any persons from countries which are infected by Covid-19 for the next 30 days. In addition, the Kenya government has acted quickly to set up special well-equipped isolated treatment centres in Nairobi and elsewhere, following WHO recommended procedures, to look after anyone who might in future be suspected of having contracted the virus.

As a result of  travel restrictions placed on both outward and inward travel at present by the governments of many countries throughout the world as a result of the Pandemic, we have introduced flexible booking terms so that once you have booked you can amend your travel dates to be postponed until later with no penalty so long as the pandemic continues and if the situation warrants this because of disruptions to travel.

For those making travel plans for this year we are committed to being flexible regarding amendments / postponement where necessary, and we will continue to update customers as the situation changes. For the latest details or to discuss your booking please get in touch with the Gamewatchers Safaris consultant who arranged your trip or contact one of our helpful team:

Keep Calm and Carry On Planning!

Although there is a temporary 30 day suspension (from 15th March) on arrivals into Kenya of travellers from any country with reported Coronavirus cases, there is no need to halt your safari planning completely for a trip to East Africa or other countries in Africa where we arrange safaris.

All our customers from overseas have now completed their safaris in Kenya and returned home. Our Porini Camps close annually during the rainy season in April / May and will open again for international visitors from 1st June 2020 and we continue to take bookings. We have been allowing any customers who were booked to stay before that date to postpone and to choose to stay at later dates with no amendment fee. We have introduced flexible booking terms so that once you have booked you can still amend your travel dates to be postponed later with no penalty so long as the pandemic continues and if the situation warrants this.

Our team of safari experts are based all over the world and are still on hand to help you put together your ideal East African safari for later this year, or for 2021. We will monitor the situation in the other countries in Africa where we arrange safaris to provide further advice in case there is any need to arrange postponements of trips already booked in the weeks ahead.

No Amendment Fee Guarantee for 2020

We are now taking new bookings for arrivals from 1 June 2020 onwards, and in order to alleviate any concerns we are offering a new flexi-booking policy with relaxed Terms & Conditions regarding future changes / postponement should their travel plans be adversely affected by COVID-19:

• Those booking a 2020 safari can later opt to postpone their travel due to reasons surrounding COVID-19, and no amendment fee will be charged.

• We will allow payments made so far to be carried forward to later dates within 12 months of the originally booked date

• The new travel dates will be subject to availability and added cost if there are any price differences from the date originally booked (apart from Porini Camps and Nimali Camps where the same price will apply to the new date so long as travel is in the same season as the original booking).
