Asilia Africa is offering discounts of up to 75 percent on a safari for healthcare and emergency service workers from anywhere in the world when travel resumes. In recognition and gratitude for their service, healthcare workers globally can travel with a plus-one (and children) to an Asilia property at the discounted rates until May 31, 2021. Anyone in the health care sector—from doctors to carers, nurses to receptionists—are welcome. Furthermore, all members of the emergency services, as well as anyone involved in the fight against COVID-19 are welcome.
Asilia hopes that, with this offer, it can welcome the heroes who have given so much to help and protect others. Commercial director Gordie Owles said in a written release, "We know that this gesture is not much compared to the sacrifice that so many have made during this pandemic. But we hope that by opening our doors and taking people out to the wilderness to recharge and reboot it goes some way to saying thank you for their heroic work."
For instance: Asilia’s flagship Kenya camp, Naboisho Camp, usually costs $1,065 per person per night; healthcare workers will be offered a rate of $247 per person per night. A typical six-night safari with Asilia staying at Naboisho in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy and Ol Pejeta Bush Camp in Kenya would usually cost $5,136 per person; healthcare workers will be able to enjoy this option for $2,958, including all internal flights to and from Nairobi, park and conservancy fees, six nights’ accommodation and all game drives.
Asilia has 19 camps across Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar.
