Mandatory quarantine

Any visitor showing symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to undergo a PCR test, and possible isolation and or quarantine for 14 days.

All passengers arriving from or transiting through India:

  • Required to quarantine (at own cost) at a site selected by the Ministry of Health & Wellness for a period not exceeding 10 days.
  • Undertake an exit COVID-19 test (at own cost) from day 5 to 7 to determine the end of their quarantine period.

Health screening & COVID-19 protocols on departure

Travellers are required to undergo a PCR test 24 hours before departing Botswana. This can be done via one of two options:

  • Option 1: Arrange in-camp testing – a qualified practitioner is flown to your camp or lodge to conduct a PCR test. This has to be booked 36 hours in advance, online bookings are essential, and a minimum of two guests is required. Guests are liable for all costs.
  • Option 2: Do the PCR test in Maun or Kasane Airport – bookings are essential. Your Africa Safari Expert can arrange this for you. Test results are available within 24 hours.
