Is It Safe To Travel?
The safety and security of our clients has always been a priority, and now this includes the Covid-19 biosecurity protocols that are standard with all our partners. Many countries and individual properties are now certified by the World Travel & Tourism Council “Safe Travel” seal of approval. We work with each client to make sure they are prepared for travel to their destination.
Contact us for an initial consultation on planning your travel. It is best to book safaris a year in advance.
As of January 2020, the following African countries are open: Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritius, Madagascar (only Nosy Be), Malawi.
Responsible Tourism and Philanthropy
Travelers have an effect on the places they visit. Tourism dollars can have a positive social, economic, cultural and environmental impact. We limit our portfolio to working with safari outfitters and destination specialists who have environmentally and socially responsible operations that minimize impact on wilderness areas, employ local citizens and provide financial benefits for local communities.
Your professional guides will share their expertise on current conservation and community struggles as well as the political and cultural issues of the area. Knowing more about the lands you travel and the people who live there builds mutual respect and fosters cultural understanding. We can arrange visits to local communities, schools, clinics and homes. Duffle & Compass can also provide information about philanthropic opportunities that are specific to the areas you will be visiting.
