We had been resigned to the fact that due to COVID we would take no trips to Africa in 2020. Well, that all changed recently! TrueWild founders Quinton and Liz Martins and their daughter Ayla (aged 8) set off to Southern Africa on October 13th, for a 10-week trip.
There are a few objectives for this trip:
Quinton, Liz and Ayla all hold South African passports and are permitted to travel to South Africa with a negative COVID test (check!). Right now, South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe are open to travelers from South Africa. Botswana is still closed but we will be monitoring the restrictions there in case they change.
TrueWild partner Neil Martin is holding down the fort at home in Northern California and will be updating this Blog!
One advantage of traveling during COVID is that the airports are quiet!
