If you are like us, then probably you are aware that 2020 was an unprecedented year. The future of Safari travels remained uncertain for months this year, and I am sure we all have been getting safari withdrawal symptoms. Nonetheless, the lockdowns, the curfews, the restrictions, deaths, demonstrations, and the unstable political environments in many countries have certainly taught us one important lesson, to enjoy the things that really matter in life.

Wearing masks, social distancing, sanitizing, and temperature checks are just some of the standard health and safety protocols that we should all embrace before embarking on African safaris.
