  1. We are seeing posts that Africa may shut down coming and goings because of a new Covid Variant. Hope this does not affect your travels.


    1. Thanks for the concern. The SA president spoke last night said they are not changing anything but there is now a greater push to get vaccinated with restrictions put on those who are not. He blasted all countries not flying here as it will hurt the already fragile economy. Also it was said the daily infection rates in SA is significantly lower than many other countries including the UK and US.
