Operators should be aware that clients of an SA based Atta tour operator holding US passports arriving from Lagos, Nigeria were refused entry into Botswana. As a result they were unable to proceed with their safari to the Delta with the accommodation providers demanding 100% cancellation charges.

Officials at the border produced this memo:

Operators should be aware that the current position appears to be that entry by anyone from Ebola affected countries and or neighbouring countries will be refused.
