News and updates
 
So February came with an additional Lockdown sentence (an extra 2 weeks) but as we have just about whittled down that one, we press on. As the days roll by there is Easter on the horizon and we have been busy making plans for pow-wows with the family. A comforting thought to hold on to as we also hope the rainy chapter will soon be over. We hope you have similar plans on the cards. Easter is just over 4 weeks from now, do get in touch with us to make your vacation bookings.
 
The rise in Covid-19 cases in neighboring South Africa over the past two months has raised concern in certain sectors of the travel industry. This was evidenced by two Regional airlines making strategic moves to limit movement so as to contain the contagion. On the 8th of February 2021 Rwandan carrier, RwandAir announced that it would be suspending its flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Lusaka, and Harare until further notice. South Africa's flagship airline South African Airways (SAA) also suspended all flights as follows;
  • Domestic and regional flights suspended until 30 April 2021
  • All international flights suspended until the 30th of October 2021.
While this move may be a huge disappointment for some we are confident it is for the best while the authorities monitor the situation. There are still some alternative in-roads to Zimbabwe and all our friends beyond the border can get in touch with us for more information on inbound flights.
 
The award-winning African Albida property Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has done it again, they have earned themselves a spot in the Travel + Leisure 2021 list of the 500 best hotels in the world. In addition, they have also made it into the Top 5 Africa resort hotels in the same Awards. We applaud them and we agree they absolutely deserve this honorable mention.
