Coronavirus – an update for travellers – 24th March

Coronavirus text

Following the outbreak of Coronavirus, we regret to confirm that none of our Easter trips will be taking place, due to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advising against all but essential travel to Ghana and Kenya.

This is due to the Ghanaian and Kenyan authorities announcing measures restricting individuals, except Ghanaian/Kenyan citizens and resident permit holders, from entering each country if they have come from countries affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), including the United Kingdom.

Trips taking place after 1st May are not currently affected and will be reviewed closer to the time. Further updates will be made to this blog as the situation develops, although volunteers will be contacted directly to advise of any changes to their trip.

Meanwhile, following the advice issued by the government, the African Adventures team are now working from home. We hope to be back in the office on Monday 20th April 2020. Please feel free to contact us at info@african-adventures.co.uk if you have any questions regarding your trip, and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
