COVID 19 GUIDELINES
The COVID19 pandemic has changed many things globally and travel has not been exempted The Off Road Uganda Safaris team has been keen to learn and understand how to mitigate the disease right from the time Uganda announced its first case on the 21st March 2020. The Uganda government has continually issued protective guidelines to its citizens basing on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) health protocal and we have followed suit to protect our guests and staff.
Uganda has just over 1000 COVID 19 positive cases as of today 21th July 2020, and of these less than 200 are active cases with zero deaths this far.
All arrivals at Entebbe International will be required to comply to the health protocol provided by Uganda’s Ministry of Health.
Off Road Uganda Safaris Ltd provides staff with detergent to ensure hand washing as required. Sanitizer and hand wipes are availed in all our safari vehicles at all times. Guests will sanitize on arrival before they get into the vehicle to transfer to their next destination and throughout the safari. Stopovers on safari will only be at locations with proper preventive measures as against COVID 19.
The sitting capacity of our safari vehicles is now adjusted as follows: safari vans with 9 sits will now sit a maximum of 5 people and only 3 for land cruisers.
There will be no handshakes throughout the safari not even on arrival at the airport. A warm smile will do well throughout the safari.
All safari activities will be carried out with social distancing in mind.
We book our guests at hotels and lodges where preventative measures against COVID 19 have been properly put in place and are observed.
Our drivers/guides have received briefing on how to keep themselves and the safari vehicles sanitized at all times. All vehicles have a sufficient supply of sanitizing solution and a pack of hand wipes. Additionally all our guides/drivers will be wearing masks throughout the safari.
The vehicles are sanitized every morning and throughout the day as may be required paying attention to door handles.
Guests are advised to bring their own masks. Off Road Uganda safaris will only have a few masks for emergency needs.
Best wishes on your Uganda and Rwanda Safari
From the Off Road Uganda Safaris team!
