With social distancing overturning the mass tourism paradigm, could COVID-19 potentially present an opportunity for more responsible travel options? The tourism industry worldwide is currently reflecting on potential prospects to rebuild with new and more sustainable ways to travel.
Emerging from the coronavirus crisis, travellers will be looking more and more to travel to remote locations, safely distanced from visiting throngs and immersed in the purity only the countryside can offer. Africa is uniquely posed to offer visitors a time out from the maddening crowds. Offering wide open spaces, miles of openness and freedom, with its uncontaminated environment and fresh air. Add to this the inherent roaming herds and enchanting beasts from all walks of the animal domain and you have just what the doctor ordered for a destination safe from the threats of the past few months.
Rest assured that all tourism associated staff and accommodations will be geared to ensure a risk free getaway once travel resumes across the continent and worldwide. African facilities have always been associated with a less is more approach to guaranteeing that guests enjoy personal care and attention every step of the way.
What could be more healing and restoring than to escape with your family on a retreat to a luxury safari camp situated in the most pristine areas of Africa? Holidaying, relaxing and restoring where the air is clean, people are warm and welcoming, and the sights picturesque and mind blowing, where time moves at a slower pace. The safari camps, situated miles from anywhere, are typically limited to a maximum of six tents, allowing no more than twelve guests at any one time. That is social distancing African Safari style!
African Safaris are transformational. Where better to reconnect with yourself and your loved ones than under African skies? Surrounded by the unpretentious beauty of the landscape, among the indigenous wildlife in their natural setting, amid the local cultures and their simple easily accepted way of life, one can only expect to be grounded in a safe and holistic way.
We are heading for interesting times, liberated from a period of threat of contagion. This will be a time of living life to the fullest with the ones we love. Get back to nature is its humblest form in Africa.
