COVID-19 Rescheduling Contingency
While we are confident travel in September 2021 will be possible, the COVID-19 pandemic may still be impacting travel. We will endeavor to be as flexible as possible if travel restrictions force the trip to be postponed. In the event the trip must be rescheduled to a future date, your payment will be applied to the rescheduled trip date. While park permit fees, charter flight costs, and Victoria Falls Hotel rates are subject to change, no other additional fees will be applied if we must reschedule the trip due to the pandemic.
- Your money is applied to a future trip date in the event COVID-19 travel restrictions require the trip to be postponed.
- Park permit, charter flight, and Victoria Falls lodging fees are subject to change.
Travel Insurance is strongly recommended, as many policies have provisions regarding unexpected trip cancellations.
WEATHER – Average daily temperatures in early September reach highs of 92°, with lows of 56° Fahrenheit. Warm/hot by mid-day, with cool and refreshing evenings. Mosquitos at this time of year are very low.
SAFETY – Capricorn Safaris has 39 years of experience guiding in Botswana and always makes guest safety and security their first priority. We will at all times be in the hands of immensely experienced guides who will be happy to answer any safety questions you have throughout the duration of our trip.
The U.S. State Department rates Botswana as Level 1 (lowest risk for foreign travelers).
HEALTH – Reverse-osmosis filtered drinking water is provided for the duration of our trip. Our experienced camp crew is trained in food-safety and hygienic practices, and a basin of fresh water is put at your tent before meals so you can wash your hands before eating.
Please check with your doctor or a travel clinic for what (if any) vaccinations you might need in preparation for this trip. Proof of Yellow Fever inoculation is NOT required for entry into Botswana (unless you are arriving from an “endemic yellow fever zone” country).
GETTING THERE – It is the responsibility of each guest to book their transportation to and from Maun, Botswana. Once we arrive in Maun, we will be in the capable hands of Capricorn Safaris for the duration of this itinerary. All charter flights between Maun and Victoria Falls are included as specified in the itinerary.
Please discuss your travel options with Skyler as it relates to visiting Cape Town, South Africa before the safari.
