Botswana Travel Alert

Country: Botswana

Alert: As of 19 August 2014 any travellers who have visited Ebola affected countries during the last 30 days will be denied entry into Botswana. These countries currently include Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Liberia. Additions may be made to this list should the outbreak spread. The above measure has been implemented by the Botswana Ministry of Health to reduce the risk of spreading the disease.

VERY IMPORTANT: The ebola outbreak in West Africa does not affect East and Southern Africa. Keep in mind that the continent of Africa is made up of 54 sovereign, independent countries. Just to put distances in perspective, Spain is situated closer to the affected West African countries than Botswana in the southern part of the continent.

Stay safe and have a fantastic safari!
