Corona Virus/Covid-19 update

As you are no doubt aware, the travel landscape is shifting rapidly with many challenges being presented in light of the Corona Virus/Covid-19 outbreak.

Typically we would see maybe one “Foreign and Commonwealth Office” (FCO) travel advisories a week but we are currently seeing around 15 per day as countries react and adapt to the actual or perceived threat from their perspective.

We here at Oasis Overland understand that you will have concerns or questions regarding your trip, or what all of this means for you. With the situation constantly changing, we are closely monitoring the impact on our trips and everyone travelling on them. As always, the safety and well-being of our travellers and our crew is our highest concern. With that in mind we have had to make some very tough decisions on postponing some of our trips that were due to set off in the near future, and we are already in contact with all of those people that are affected directly by those trips.

For other trips in the near future we shall be continuing to monitor the situation. We are regularly updated by AITO and the FCO and we also use our local contacts out on the ground to keep us informed. We always endeavour to run our trips where possible, and due to the very nature of an overlanding trip if needed we can often adapt our routes, while trying to have as minimal an impact as possible.

While this is all unchartered waters with regards to what is happening the world over, we want to do what is best for you and your trip and therefore we shall be in touch with you if there will be any changes to later trip departures.

If you need to get in contact with us please do but we would ask that you email us and please be patient in waiting for a reply as we are extremely busy making arrangements for clients and trips that are currently on the road as well as dealing with enquiries about future trips.

When it is safe and practical to do so, we aim to have all our trips back on the road at the earliest opportunity so that we may support our local suppliers, projects and of course our overseas crew as well as provide our travellers with an incredible adventure.
