Victoria Falls Zimbabwe Covid-19 Updates

(Victoria Falls)

International and Domestic Airports Open in Zimbabwe

11th September 2020

Zimbabwe's borders have been closed for 6 months, so it is with a huge sigh of relief that the tourism industry of Zimbabwe welcomes the decision by Cabinet for the opening of domestic and international flights on the 10th September and 1st October respectively.

This is of course only the first step to tourism opening up again. The next step is for the airlines to schedule inbound flights. We therefore welcome Emirates Airlines decision to resume twice weekly flights to Harare from the 1st October. Hopefully the other airlines will follow suit in the coming days and weeks.

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) have been put in place for the reopening of the international and domestic airports. In addition, the National Guidelines for Aviation Safety and Security have been developed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) to ensure the safety of both the travellers and airport staff.

At the present moment, any travellers arriving are required to show a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) COVID-19 clearance certificate, issued by a recognised facility within 48 hours of their departure date. If they do not have the required certificate they will need to undergo a PCR test on arrival and remain in a quarantine centre until the results come back.

Hopefully the regional border posts of Beitbridge, Kazungula, Plumtree and Victoria Falls Bridge will open soon to allow self-drive tourists to enjoy Zimbabwe once again.

In Victoria Falls, there is a great selection hotels and guest houses that are open, and they have good specials on offer.

Victoria Falls has been dubbed as the Adventure Capital of Africa. Activities have been given the green light to go ahead and resume operations, once again adhering to strict COVID safety protocols. In line with these announcements the activity operators are resuming operations for some of the most popular activities like high wire, tour of Victoria Falls, game drives, river cruises and white-water rafting.

Some restaurants and cafés are open. As we gain momentum and more tourists arrive, I am confident that all the restaurants will open their doors.

To date, Zimbabwe has had 7,453 coronavirus cases and 222 deaths, as reported by the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.

So by no means is Victoria Falls back to pre-covid days but positive progress is being made. The situation is ever-changing, and we are on the ground to keep you up-to-date with the situation as it evolves.

It’s a good time to start planning your trip, please contact us, and we are more than happy to assist you.
