Dear friends of Great Plains,

We’re ready!

We have always run safari experiences that are based on bespoke, caring, meaningful, and considerate values.

Introducing this COVID policy has taken us some time because, in the same way, I’ve tasked our teams with finding out the science first, then dealing with best practices, and then having operations teams travel into camps and mock-up tests for practicality.

We’ve made adjustments that you will read about, but ironically it hasn’t really needed too much tweaking from what we normally provide because of the space, the politeness of our staff already, and the open-air facilities. Still, I wanted to take what the finest hotels in the world do, what our fellow members in Relais & Châteaux are doing across the globe, and what our contacts in Johns Hopkins and other high-end health facilities across the world suggest.

We’ve had to design this against the backdrop of two intertwined values in Great Plains in that we are in the hospitality business, not the hospital business, and that warmth of the welcome is in our DNA, and yet we, of course, want to offer the security of safety to our guests, and to our staff. So what you can expect from us is both, no compromise hospitality, and no compromise on safety. It’s not that difficult. We’ve been doing it forever.
