Hey, just after some advice please. We are supposed to be going to South Africa at beginning of September. Do people think this is unlikely to happen? And if we do get the go ahead do you think South Africa will be dangerous? Trying to work out our best options! Cheers!

The flight is a danger with aircon and other passengers. What about the self isolation

@sepulchral but virus isn't going to be gone there's no cure and no vaccine. Hotels require guests to wear masks bars and common areas are going to closed off and breakfast delivered to your room. A lot of hotels are not planning on opening over Christmas because of reduced numbers of guests it won't pay them to open. So this would have to be in your travel plans

@seizing it won’t stop international travel. People have to learn to live with this virus as it’s not going anywhere. No one will be expected to self isolate in 4 months time. The world has to keep moving eventually. Things will adapt.

Even if you did go, you probably need another 3 weeks of holidays for self isolation lol

I lived in South Africa for 16 years. It's always a little bit dangerous.

I don’t think holidays will start up again fully till next year if you have booked a package holiday don’t cancel until the government says you can’t go which will be nearer the time wait for the holiday company to cancel or you will lose your money good luck xxx
