Update on Volcanoes Safaris Lodges 

17 December 2021

Welcome to Volcanoes Safaris Lodges. We are honoured to have received an increasing number of guests with a busy high season. All guests have managed to deal with the paperwork and testing and have had a rewarding and relaxing time.

Travel to Uganda and Rwanda is proceeding normally and restrictions have been lifted. As the supply of vaccines to the region have steadily increased, the governments have vaccinated an increasing number of people, especially in the main urban areas. All Volcanoes guest-facing staff whether at lodges, offices or guides have been vaccinated.

The national parks in Rwanda and Uganda, including the gorilla and chimpanzee parks, have special protocols in place to protect gorillas and guests.

The main East African airports – Nairobi, Kigali, Entebbe, Dar-es-Salaam and Kilimanjaro are open and welcoming international guests with special protocols to safeguard passenger health.

On 14 December 2021 Rwanda announced that it would be introducing a 3 day quarantine for international arrivals to the country.

The Rwandese authorities have now confirmed that tourists visiting the national parks will be exempted from the three day quarantine and will only need to quarantine for a maximum of 24 hours, as now, while their test results are released. Tourists will then need to do a daily test while in country at their own cost.

Please see the protocol to be followed by international visitors to Rwanda.

We look forward to welcoming you to our lodges, whether single travellers, conservation groups, family celebrations or exclusive villa bookings. We are ready to support you with our flexible terms on postponement.

Guests’ participation and support for our conservation and community projects is also crucial at this time. We encourage you to support our community and conservation projects.
