We have movement at least .... Inter provincial hunting is open . This means local meat hunters can go and on their annual hunts and also sleep over .
Pretty simple document to be completed but we are getting somewhere.
Hopefully the International travel will resume soon ....the only obstacle I see is the qaurantine period that might hang for a while after travel opens up .
Lets hope all happens sooner rather than later !
Marius the news paper article you posted I will not take to seriously ... to many factors that can influence things ...
That kinda stinks, I have my trip planned for October. So close.
Here’s when South Africa will open for international travel again – the best and worst case scenariosThe Department of Tourism has published a new draft recovery plan, outlining the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and how the tourism industry is likely to be impacted over the next year.businesstech.co.za
PHASA has been saying for two months that international hunting will not return until 2021. Just last week their govt cancelled their domestic meat hunting allowance.Talked with Patrick at TWG the other day and he expects Emirates to cancel my tickets soon as well, but hasn't yet for my Sept trip which I canceled months ago. I have no confidence in SA opening this year for foreign hunters, despite some of the optimistic views of some. I just don't see it. Further if they opened tomorrow, I will still wait for some time before attempting such travel. Its just fraught with hazards and inconvenience.
I think we found an out. Our outfitter has pivoted to Namibia, and it looks like we're going to go there instead. Same dates, we just need to get our brain inspected with a q-tip before we leave.
