KAFUNTA SAFARIS COVID UPDATES AND BOOKING TERMS
(latest update 05 February 2023)
Following challenging years of dealing with the pandemic, we have returned to normal operations in the Luangwa Valley.
Of course, we will continue to maintain our high cleanliness standards and to monitor any sanitary measures that may be requested by the Zambian Ministry of Health and Ministry of Tourism as well as the World Health Organisation in order to ensure safe environments and experiences throughout your stay.
Traveling around the world in 2023 may still occasionally bring challenges and it is the traveller’s responsibility to verify the latest requirements put in place by the Zambian government, airports or airlines.
ARRIVAL REQUIREMENTS & INFORMATION
2) List of countries that are deemed to be at high risk of COVID 19 by the Ministry of Health / Zambia National Public
Health Institute (ZNPHI) as of 13 September 2021
(there hasn’t been any update to this list, and it is still considered valid as of January 2022)
- Costa Rica
- St. Kitts & Nevis
- United Arab Emirates
We recommend reading the following:
Zambia doesn’t have any exit requirement. Travellers are responsible to check if any measures are required by the airlines or countries of transit and destination.
ATTENTION: as requirements for exit PCR tests have consistently decreased, there is no longer any travel-aimed testing facilities in Mfuwe. Inquire about testing options at Lusaka airport upon departure should this still be necessary in 2023.
BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS
With travel conditions returning to normal, our general terms and conditions are again implemented.
Other than the admin fee of $100, there is no penalty for cancelling a booking which is more than 91 days away. If the booking is within 90 days of travel, our regular cancellation terms apply (90-46 days 20%, 45-0 days 100%).
Any refund will incur an admin/banking fee of $100.
Clients are advised to claim compensation from their personal travel insurance.
However, if travel is made impossible due to strict and valid Covid-19 reasons (see below), we may agree on a case by case basis to postpone the reservation to later dates in 2023. Sadly, cancellations within the last 48 hours will forfeit full payment.
COVID-19 RELATED REASONS INCLUDE:
If our properties are temporarily closed.
If the Zambian government has closed borders to international travellers or is not issuing visas for travellers from the guests’ country of origin.
If the government of the guest’s country of residence has closed its borders to all but essential travel.
If there is a compulsory quarantine imposed in Zambia or the traveler’s country.
Excluded: Testing positive prior to departure from country of origin. This is a medical cause that must be covered by traveler’s insurance.
These terms are for FIT bookings only, they do not apply to group bookings. Third-party services are subject to each suppliers’ policy.
