What guidelines are in place to ensure minimal COVID-19 exposure?
The logistics of this entire trip have been designed with the current state of the pandemic in mind. Therefore, masks will be utilized throughout the trip. All transportation between New York and Kenya, including all transportation within Kenya, will be private to the members of this trip. VIP arrival and departure screenings will keep interaction with others to a minimum, and all staff members at each camp will be tested before guest arrival. All trip members will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of departure and are encouraged to self-quarantine for 14 days before trip departure. On the trip, physical distancing between parties will be the goal when dining, traveling and spending time in camp.
How will I get to Africa?

Travelers will then board a Boeing 787 charter by Great Plains Conservation, with 180-degree reclining beds and first class service for a flight to Nairobi.
Upon arrival in Nairobi, travelers will be separated into groups of 10 and rotate through 4 camps/lodges with 3-night stays at each. Travel between camps/lodges will be via private vehicle or private air. Upon conclusion of the trip, a similar departure strategy for the chartered international flight will ensue.
