International travel, with the feeling of insecurity associated with flights and airports have a detrimental effect on tourism. Cities are deserted, and South African Parks and attractions did not see visitors for months. Many countries and places with popular destinations are now reconsidering its mass-tourism model. As soon as borders will open up and international travel commences, travelers will be asking many questions concerning their safety, while people are longing to get out and be anxious to travel again. Our company decided to give safety and distancing a thought in order to make it much more safe and accessible to travel with us. Here are some of the considerations and solutions we are implementing:
-small group travel with not more than 5 guests on a particular tour for now. The fear of proximity between people and the need to avoid crowded spaces will play an important role. The vehicle you will be travelling in is large enough for 8 people, but with your safety in mind, we limit the amount to 5, plus the driver/Guide. If more book, we use 2 x mini buses. This ensures an open seat between you and a fellow guest at all times. Small groups also have the benefit to be more flexible, and to fit more activities into a day’s program. If there is consent between all travelers, extra sights/activities can be visited if possible, making your tour much more worthwhile. -when your destination is a safari in nature, it will allow you to put together social distancing and contact with nature, which in recent weeks many travelers have been unable to benefit from. Have a look at our very popular Kruger National Park & Panorama Route, Cape Town and Garden Route and Addo Elephant Park and Pilanesberg Tours. -family holidays, particularly when a family book a private tour for them alone (which is possible), social distancing becomes a lesser issue, and you can have a safe vacation on any of our tours. All other required safety measurements will always be implemented.
With tourists who take the time to understand and get away from the frenetic tours of previous times, these measures are a way to move towards intelligent tourism. See our tours at www.amatungulu.com, and Book now!
