COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Information

Spirit of Africa is committed to the safety of our guests, employees and the broader community. We follow South African government regulations on COVID-19 and traveller advice from the National Institute for Communicable Diseases and the World Health Organization.

The South African tourism industry has developed comprehensive COVID-19 Protocols which are adjusted continuously in line with the risk-adjusted economic activity allowed by the South African government, the pandemic status, new information and published government regulations.

Aligned to these, Spirit of Africa have developed our own specific COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols to be applied to all programmes and group travel. These protocols aim to standardise procedures in order to create a safety-net that reduces fear (and risk) and increases comfort, not just for our travellers, but also for our employees and communities. These protocols will be outlined and explained to all travellers at their arrival briefing.

Breach of behavioural protocols may lead to an individual’s suspension from a programme, particularly should their actions be deemed to put the safety of fellow participants, staff or local communities at risk. Any consequential costs incurred will be for the account of the client, who may recover the costs from the participant.

Our protocols are not static and will continue to evolve in line with our ‘best current view’.
