South Africa’s international borders are now open for leisure travel from medium and low-risk countries and for business travel from high-risk countries with a valid business travel permit. The list of high-risk countries will be updated every two weeks.
A passenger must be in possession of a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test certificate or a valid COVID-19 negative test certificate, obtained not more than 72 hours before the date of travel, from an accredited laboratory in line with the World Health Organization requirements as well as travel insurance.
Birkenhead House, La Residence and Royal Malewane are now open. The Silo Hotel will reopen on Monday 23 November 2020.
While our hotels were temporarily closed due to the South African Government’s lockdown regulations, we were carefully planning protocols and procedures to protect our guests and staff. We also used the time to engage with and train staff and to renovate and upgrade our properties. The Royal Portfolio Foundation continued to support critical community and conservation projects including counter-poaching initiatives at Royal Malewane and various Covid-19 Relief Feeding Schemes.
