ON-site COVID testing

Bateleur Safari Camp offers full PCR COVID testing on-site for guests who will be traveling home directly from the camp. Bateleur books the service providers in advance to the testing date. We are bound by the time slots available and this could mean that a camp activity is missed. Results are available within 24 hours and we will print a copy for each person. All tests can be paid for by Credit Card at the camp. Pricing can be provided to you on request. Please send us a mail below for details.
