Released August 2nd, 2022:

Dear Travelers,

Below is the latest information we have. We continue to monitor how countries, airlines, and travel suppliers adapt to travel restrictions and changes.

“We have good news! The travel and tourism industry is almost back to its 2019 peak, with a recovery rate of over 95%. The outlook for summer travel in 2023 is also looking quite positive, with only a 5% difference compared to pre-pandemic levels in 2019, when travel was at its highest.

South Africa is currently welcoming international travelers and Go Touch Down is operating at full capacity. Our schedule for 2023 is filling up fast, and we are almost fully booked. For those planning further ahead, we are now accepting reservations for 2024 and 2025. Our recent travelers have had an amazing experience with us, and we have received many positive reviews.”
