Afternoon all,

With all the talk of Covid and lockdowns, i thought i would share a little update with everyone here.

A few weeks ago, our president declared the airports open. This was however not without a hitch as the immigration department was still not issuing tourist visa's.

We received word about 10 days ago that tourist destinations could apply on behalf of the incoming client for a "pre-approved" visa.
Today i received a notice stating that a couple of hunting clients have landed and come into the country without a hitch to conduct their hunts.

There are some conditions pre-travel that are required, such as a negative test prior to departure and then a test on arrival.

The good news is that we are open and willing.

I'll update here as things go on and if there are any changes, but in the meantime, time to pack bags and get your hunting fix for the season.

As far as I know it is open to whomever has a negative test result and can fly in. I haven’t heard otherwise.

Just flying across the US sucks, an international flight with a mask on would make a guy want to suck start his 375 by the time you arrived!

Yeah, i agree.
I hate wearing them and only do so when i have to in public.
At the very least, the choice is there for anyone willing and keen to come hunt.

At least you would be assured that Mike will have a few cold drinks ready for a travel weary hunter!
I’ve been told Zim has a mandatory quarantine in place of 8 days. Assuming nothing like this yet in Zambia? I’m sure that the facility to quarantine in Zim is quite classy with all the luxury one could expect! For a little extra I bet you could throw in an armed robbery, a panga assault and guaranteed case of the Coronie!

:ROFLMAO:
zim is also on a 18:00 to 06:00 curfew!
so i guess that would make it daylight robbery...

There is no mandatory quarantine here.
You will only be asked to quarantine in a designated facility if you are positive for symptoms as well as a positive test once you arrive.

had a quick look on their website,
It shows Chicago to Addis Ababa on to Lusaka.
Washington Dulles to Addis to Lusaka
Hope that helps a bit, that's as far as i managed to get before my internet crapped out again!

I am sure a travel agent would find other suitable options.

I thought Tanzania had opened, but i haven't heard much.
Perhaps one of the TZ operators on here can share some info?
