Please be advised that all parks under African Parks management remain open at this time. However, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, African Parks strongly advises any travellers to follow national travel advisories, to be familiar with their respective quarantine conditions and any potential border closures. African Parks is monitoring developments closely as the situation continues to evolve and as travel conditions change, placing the safety of all visitors and staff as our highest priority.

We are adhering to the guidelines provided by national Governments and to the recommendations of the World Health Organisation which are being implemented across the parks to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to ensure for people’s wellbeing.

We will continue to provide updates on further developments. Should you have any enquiries about travel to the parks, please email Dave Wilson, Head of Commercial Development at African Parks, on davew@africanparks.org.
