We are closely monitoring all global developments related to the COVID-19 virus, especially in Africa and the surrounding countries like Seychelles and the Maldives. We have daily communication with the tour operators, airlines, and tourism boards. We also speak to our local, in-country ground crews every day.
Additionally, please note that the CDC contains the most updated information regarding spread of the virus, the risks, and the most affected areas. The CDC also maintains health notices to help guide the public on making decisions about traveling to and from certain areas of the world. Please regularly check this site and the CDC’s Novel Coronavirus webpage for updates, as this is a rapidly changing situation.
- Please contact your travel consultant if you have any questions about your upcoming trip(s).
- We offer 24/7 ground support in every country we sell. Whether you’re out wine-tasting in South Africa, on a wildlife adventure in Kenya, or relaxing on a beach in Mozambique, you have local travel partners (our ground crew) you can call anytime, for any assistance you may need.
- Your travel consultant here at Africa Endeavours will review their contact details with you prior to your departure.
Our Chicago team is available 9am-6pm CST Monday through Friday to chat through your trip and discuss any concerns you may have. Information changes daily and our travel consultants will have those updates to discuss with you. Just give us a call at (888) 367-0933.
- If you choose not to travel now or in the near future, we will guide you through modifying your dates for later this year or early next year.
