Kenya Re-Opens for Safari Tourisim

We received new this morning, July 6, 2020, that international flights to Kenya will resume on August 1, 2020 with no quarantines for arriving travelers.


“Anybody visits Kenya with no symptoms of Coronavirus and with a body temperature of less than 37.5 degrees Celsius will be allowed to leave the airport,” Transport Cabinet Secretary, James Macharia said. “You do not expect a tourist to come all the way from wherever they will come from to be quarantined here for 14 days. However, if there is a suspected case on the flight, passengers on the first and the second row from where the case was will all be tested for Coronavirus,” Macharia said. “If they test negative, they will be allowed to leave the airport, if they test positive then they will be quarantined according to the Ministry of Health’s guidelines,” he added. Also anyone who exhibits Coronavirus symptoms upon arrival will be subjected to a mandatory 14-day quarantine.


Remember travelers arriving to Kenya must have a certificate that they are COVID-19 free. This certificate must be issued no more than 72 hours before their ARRIVAL into Kenya.


Getting to Kenya – Kenya Airways, Lufthansa, British Airways, Turkish Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, KLM, Qatar Airways, Emirates Air, RwandAir and Egypt Air are flying to Nairobi.


Stay well,

“I first visited Africa in the late 1980s. I came face to face with a wild elephant, and fell in love with being on safari! I made it my goal to create an African travel company that was all about authentic wildlife experiences. Many years later we are one of the top African travel companies in the Americas – known for arranging custom safaris to East and Southern Africa; personal trips, no cookie cutter stuff.”
