In the President's speech on Monday, the scheduled date for reopening the international airport was announced. It seems that it will accept international commercial flights from August 1, and the relevant parties have begun to prepare for the arrival. Details regarding travel for tourism purposes and restrictions on movement after arrival will be announced later, but I am glad that the airport, which was closed from the end of March, opens.

Safety measures

Apart from the guidelines by the Tourism Bureau, the Ministry of Tourism seems to be considering imposing a negative proof test every 14 days on Safari Tour drivers. I don't think it will be possible in Kenya to create a situation in which all tens of thousands of drivers around the country will be able to undergo PCR testing, so I will continue to report whether it will be scrapped or forced.

We have found that the national parks across Kenya cut the entrance fee by half for the purpose of bailing out the most devastated tourism industry. It was announced by the Minister of Tourism and lasts for one year. In other words, you can visit Amboseli and Lake Nakuru at a reasonable price until next June. By the way, since the most famous Masai Mara is under the control of the local government, it is up to the governor of another prefecture to decide whether similar measures will be taken. The photo shows Nairobi National Park in Nairobi, which is about 110 square kilometers and has about 30 small lions.

It looks like a bus terminal in the capital city of Nairobi (pictured), but since it is allowed to move across counties, it has returned to a certain level of vitality. It is mandatory to wear a mask when using a public bus or shopping at a supermarket.

Since the first domestic infection was reported on March 12, the total number of infected people in Kenya has reached 3,860. There are about 100 new infections every day, and it seems that the peak is about to begin, but the infection has not exploded, probably because of various behavior restrictions that are being implemented.

Although it is a curfew that has been implemented all over the country since March, the time limit for the other day has changed and it is only necessary to be home by 9 pm. As a result, more and more companies are returning their work hours to normal.

Unless the restrictions on transportation from Nairobi to the suburbs that were introduced in April are relaxed, we will not be able to go to the treasure trove of wildlife such as Masai Mara and Amboseli. However, there is a possibility that domestic flight operations may resume sooner, and if this happens, it will be possible to fly from Wilson Airport to a regional national park using a propeller plane.
