How we travel has changed tremendously. But as one of Africa’s caring tour operators, Southern Dynasty Safaris is committed to ensuring the safety of our guests and staff. Our team will advise you on your post-Covid holiday to Africa.

We suggest that you visit the official government website of the country you’re going to visit. Please also check your airline’s travel regulations prior to departure.

Most airlines are asking passengers to produce a negative RT-PCR test performed within 48 hours of departure. Some airlines require a negative RT-PCR test for both the inbound and outbound flight.

The RDT (Rapid Diagnostic Test) and the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests are different. RDT results and home test results are unlikely to be accepted.
