Spoke to Gracy Travel this AM. Ethiopian started passenger flights from Chicago and D.C. to Addis ababa and onward today.
SAA got their bailout. S-O-O-O-O you can get to any open country Ethiopian services and when RSA lifts the travel ban SAA will be flying.

What difference does it make, when most countries are closed anyway??

The difference is that I was worried about SAA not being around next year. So, I am relieved.

I think you can expect many countries will not be open to US travellers until things are a bit more in hand. Then there is the issue of the 14 day quarantines that most countries have in place as well. Until those are gone it will rule out most hunters going abroad. Not many can spare a couple more weeks of time, possibly at either end and the added expenses. She is wait and see for most of us.

I saw an article today somewhere that Zimbabwe had just opened parks and restaurants.

TZ is open to US travelers. Mike Fell posted on his Fb page a few days ago that he flew from DC to TZ on Ethiopian airlines with no problems. Allow plenty of time in Addis to recheck rifles for onward travel.

My Zim PH also confirmed the above. The hope now is that Safari camps will also be opened soon. Hunting may happen yet in Zim this year.


STAY IN THE FIGHT!

Well! I think if hunters have safaris scheduled for 2020 in Tanzania and Zambia which are open, Ethiopian coming on line could be a very big deal for them.

December is delightful in the Kafue of Zambia and the first light rains rejuvenate the country and the temperatures are mild. The flora is in color and the whole country turns green.

Andrew,

I'd love to see that. I love hunting during the rains. Call me crazy. I'm booked in 2021 in Tanz. Only question is can I get there?

Just wondering...

If a country open borders and there is a possible airline to bring you there .. should you go ? Is it just that simple ?

If you look at whats happening in many European countries right now, this is what happened mid July. The result is that Covid is now increasing again. And countries and communities are starting locking down again.

I talked with one Zim PH today and he talked about another lock down still being the situation in Zim. This week I talked to agents selling hunts in Poland, Hungary etc in Europe. Since borders opened they have had very few bookings, almost non. What does that mean ? It means that most European hunters do not take the chance... why should they ? Just beacause a country's border is open again and there is a airline available... I am sorry, but I do not see the wisdom in such thinking...

Getting back home is even more important than being able to go.

At least that is the way it is for me.

I understand your concern about getting back. However, I had more in mind the possible spread of the Covid virus. This fact seem to be forgotten by many ...

Guys,

This is old news. If you have followed the appropriate steps to acquired a visa pre arrival you will have no issues entering Zambia for your hunt.

The way how the situation internationally is so fluid, I would rather stay home.

Things seem to be changing over night, sometimes without any logic at all.

I agree Saeed and at the moment I would not advise my clients to travel. Lets see what happens in a month or so.

Things must be improving.

This time last week, according to Emirates they had 39 flights active.

Right now I checked the app and they have 51 flights active.

Still a lot short of their normal time table, but obviously it is improving.

Guys,

I have several clients in the process of acquiring Zambian visas and making arrangements on Ethiopian. I myself will be going there if Emirates comes back on line with flights to Zambia and Mauritius.

Muchinga has a couple of US clients in the field right now. They were 40 minutes from deplaning to leaving the airport including gun clearance upon arrival. Slick!
