Enhanced Safety and Cleanliness
At Brave Africa, our number one priority is the health and safety of our guests and staff. As such, we have implemented additional processes to maximize the cleanliness of our camp and the safety of your experience during the pandemic. Already, Brave Africa is ideally set up for a holiday where social distancing is embedded into the experience.
- Our camp’s maximum capacity is six tents (12 guests) at a time and a maximum of six guests per vehicle (two guests per row—no occupied middle seat).
- Our main tent and vehicles are open-air, which greatly diminishes the infectiousness of airborne diseases.
- Guests are assigned to a tent that they will use for the entire trip, decreasing cross-contamination possibilities.
Not only will each guest receive a personal Brave Africa Health Amenity Kit upon arrival—which includes a mask, personal hand sanitizer, and personalized water bottle—but we have implemented multiple enhanced health and safety measures. They include:
- Increased availability of hand sanitizer.
- Masks available to use as-needed / desired.
- Enhanced staff training on safety and health protocols.
- Heightened cleaning and hygiene processes.
- Our team will carefully wipe down and sanitize vehicle armrests, seats, and handles after every game drive.
- All shared surfaces at camp will be cleaned and sanitized between uses.
- Sanitization of hard surfaces during daily guest tent cleaning.
