PCR Tests for International Travellers

Covid-19 Update

The South Africa President, Cyril Ramaphosa, announced on the 11th November that South African borders are now open to all countries. All International travel will resume provided that travellers provide a valid certificate of a negative PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test within 72 hours of the date of travel. To assist International travellers visiting Kapama, who might not know where or how to go about getting this test, Kapama Private Game Reserve has made this process a lot easier.

Should Kapama Private Game Reserve be the guest’s final stop in South Africa, Kapama will be able to assist guests with obtaining a PCR test certificate.

 

Appointments

All appointments will be pre-booked by Kapama the morning before guests depart. Appointments will be before 10am in order for results to be received the following day. Arrangements for bigger groups will be scheduled earlier to ensure all guests can be  tested

PCR Testing

Testing – Option 1 – At the Lab – via Drive Through

Kapama will chauffeur guests in comfortable air-conditioned vehicles the day before their departure to a designated medical facility in the town of Hoedspruit  from Monday to Fridays only. Hoedspruit town is only a 20-minute drive from Kapama’s main gate. Guests will not need to leave the vehicle as the mouth swab test will be conducted in a drive-through fashion.

Testing – Option 2 – At the Lodge – in the guest’s room or designated area

Testing can be done Monday to Sunday at any of the four Kapama Lodges in the comfort of the guest’s room or in a private dedicated area at the Lodge. Tests will be sent to Tzaneen or Nelspruit for the results. This test is recommended for guests requiring a test over a weekend

Cost

The cost of the drive-through test is R 850 per person.  The cost of the test done at the Lodge starts from R2 400 per person. Group costs will differ depending on the number in the group. An additional fee of R1 950 for transport will be charged for the Lodge test. The guest’s account will be billed by Kapama to streamline the billing process between the medical facility and the guests.

Results

Results will be emailed through to guests or sent via SMS the following day before departure.

Should a guest test positive, Kapama will have suites available where guests can self-quarantine. This will be for the guests own account.
