After several months of life changing events we are all acutely aware of the major economic effects that COVID-19 has had on almost every business and person across the globe.
Travel is one of the industries that has been impacted the hardest due to travel bans, border closures and different levels of lockdown in various countries. With South Africa’s international borders reopening on 1 October, it is time to kickstart the revival of our businesses.
Over the last 6 months there has been many concerns voiced around the financial health of the tourism industry and the flow and security of funds. This includes travellers concerns regarding the security of their prepaid funds for deposits or balance payments. We believe prepaid monies should be held in a financially protected environment to provide travellers, travel businesses and suppliers with complete peace of mind and security.
We are actively seeking workable solutions to achieve this however, in the meantime, we would like to clarify our current position and give you peace of mind:
Our continued responsible management of all prepaid funds means that all our guests can have peace of mind and that prepaid monies are safely protected and their dream safari is not at risk in any way.
We will continue to honour our commitments and in so doing, grow even stronger relationships as we move forward into a new and exciting era of Thornybush safaris.
