As Botswana’s borders open up to international travellers, Wilderness Safaris is thrilled to start welcoming guests to its exclusive Jao, Vumbura and Kalahari concessions from mid-December 2020. The giant luxury safari tour operator will also continue hosting guests at Mombo, King’s Pool, Qorokwe and Jacana camps, which have been open to domestic travellers for several months.
Wilderness said in a press statement that in line with its stringent health and hygiene standards, which follow the World Health Organisation’s protocols, that it would ensure that guests are taken care of every step of the way. It said on its website its camps accommodate small numbers of guests and thus already have the advantage of ample space, allowing for comfort and social distancing.
At our camps, the true luxury is your access to our private concessions – teeming with birdlife, game and predators. Accommodation ranges from ultra-luxurious and fully catered to camps equipped with basic services for self-catering – giving you complete flexibility around your safari activities.
The extreme remoteness and small size of our camps – Mombo, Vumbura Plains, Jao, King’s Pool, Qorokwe, Jacana and Kalahari Plains – makes them ideal for social distancing.
Our stringent health protocols on Wilderness Air and in camp, as well as those implemented by the Botswana government, offer complete peace of mind. – Wilderness Safaris website notice.
The wide variety of activities on offer – from game drives to bush walks, boating and mekoro activities (camp- and water-dependent) – also allow for physical distance between guests, the company said. It stressed the stringent health measures on Wilderness Air and in camp, as well as those implemented by the Botswana government, offer tremendous peace of mind.
