We booked a safari for July 2020 and it was postponed for July 2021.
Our safari tour company says that all is set for this year, except for one detail. Our safari starts in Kenya and ends in Tanzania and Tanzania requires we have a negative COVID-19 PCR test prior to flying out for home in the USA. If we simply went back to Kenya, apparently Kenya has the same rule.
Problem is that going into the bush for the safari we are away from any testing center. The problem is that the test results are supposed to come back in 72 hours (even that is not always the case). There are the quick tests available at the international airports, but the governments require the PCR tests. Apparently, the safari companies are trying to persuade the governments to accept the quicker antigen test. Usually, these tests for the virus are mandated by countries before you enter. Not sure why those African countries are requiring the PCR tests to fly out of the country? We are hopeful that one or both of these governments will change that policy.
