This page shows COVID-19 guidelines for Botswana, but please check local government advice before making any decisions.
Please Note: We provide help with COVID specific requirements to clients who have booked a safari with us only.
Before arriving:
  • All travellers are required to present a negative COVID-19 test certificate upon arrival.  The test must be a Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test, with the sample collected within 48 hours of boarding your flight to Zimbabwe.
  • All Travellers must complete a Traveller Health Questionnaire which will be distributed on your flight.
On arrival:
  • Presentation of Covid-19 PCR negative certificate and the Travel Health Questionnaire.
  • Temperature & health screening.
PCR Testing:
  • PCR Testing can be done locally in Victoria Falls at a rate of USD 60 per person.  Many hotels and camps allow you to do this from the comfort of your accommodation for a small added fee.  Results can be returned quickly, sometimes same day.
For departure:
  • There is no specific requirement for exit of Zimbabwe, however it is likely your home country or next travel country will require a test.  In addition, many airlines also require testing and you should consult their websites for the requirements.
Vaccinated passengers:
  • There is currently no exemption to the rules for fully vaccinated passengers.
