Rwanda is Open for Tourism amidst Covid19

In July the government of Rwanda and announced that it would be reopening national parks for residents. This went on well and locals started visiting the national parks for gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking and game drives. Later it was announced that the airport would open on 1st August 2020 information was provided on the expectations of travelers.

A lot of people who had booked safaris to Uganda and Rwanda had thankfully postponed them to next year. We are thankful that many of you chose not to cancel but instead postpone them to next year. Now that Rwanda opened, we are encouraging you to start the process of coming up with new dates of travel – this can be this year or next year.

Last week we were privileged to have our first client amidst Covid19. He took a test 92 hours to his travel, was negative which he uploaded on the RDB website. Then he took his flight to Kigali and on arrival took another test and quarantined for one night as he waited for his results which thankfully came back negative.

Planning this trip was emotional but we hang in mostly because he was determined to travel. When others postponed their trips he insisted that we wait it out and we waited it out but things seemed to keep getting worse. It was getting emotionally draining because of the different news from the government changing procedures and the airlines cancelling and rescheduling his flights. This meant that we would keep changing the itinerary and therefore inform the lodges about new dates but it all eventually worked out well.

We are glad the tour was beautiful and the client enjoyed their trip and felt safe the whole time. He has gladly shared his experience here and you are encouraged to book your safari amidst this ‘new normal’.
