We’re seeing already that the factors influencing this pandemic are numerous. Strictness and timing of lockdown measures, robustness of healthcare systems, the weather, luck and other factors are all at work - meaning some countries and regions will recover first. We will see corridors of recovery open back up one by one.
How this will look exactly is difficult to predict. For example, Italy is days ahead of other European countries when it comes to the extent of its outbreak.Back home we expect Kenya to recover by early June and people able to move freely and take Much craved Safari.
Keep abreast with our soon to be unveiled our Post Covid-19 Safari Road trips for Domestic Market.
Domestic travel will recover first (there’s no border control),That means taking a train,SGR to the beach and probably business connection to Nairobi. Not only will we be able to get back on tracks (Lunatic express) first, we’ll also be more secure about it.
Trains are less crowded, have windows that open and are much more environmentally friendly, spacious and sceanic. Once the lockdowns & curfews in Kenya are lifted, I predict people will rush to take a train. we look forward to a more robust movement, recovery process amidst much more changes in travel behavior.
As opposed to group travel,Post covid-19 traveler will be more conscious about health to economy of scales that comes with group travel . We will witness more of foreign independent travel wanderlust, small intimate groups, Travel solo, in couples or Family.
Their desire will be more to Avoid Mass Tourism, crowd in favor to individualized independent approach . The huge rise availability of all aspect of Travel planning online will make it easy for FIT package their own travel itineraries and capture more of Virtual Online consultants who can be able to assist the clients virtually. such models will be enhanced by online holiday OTAs like www.Holiday-traveldeals.com owned by Africa Events Travel.
The Covid-19 Pandemic is probably one of the greatest catastrophic effect known to human history .Travel agents , Airlines, cruise ships record losses in millions with most of them running into bankruptcy.Millions of Travel consultants and staff in Hospitality industry either took unpaid leave while majority were rendered redundant and Majority have taken up "work from home model", we shall witness majority of consultants taking up online working or virtual consultants.Affiliate consultancy models will rake in more consultancies where such consultants will earn robust commissions. such models are well positioned by affiliate programs like : https://africaeventstravel.co.ke/loyalty-program/
Certainly in the short-term, travel will become more defined by purpose. Any business travel will need to be strictly validated as an economic activity, with companies tightening the numbers of employees who travel for them.
