While COVID-19 has been the centre of global focus in the last months, we seem to be settling down toward a new normal. In some parts of the world, international travel is coming back to life, and in the Seychelles we are lucky to be gradually opening our borders. We are excited to reawaken the tourism industry but we have not lost the important perspective that came into focus in the last months.
During these past months we have decided to look inwards and reflect. Where did the concept of travel originate and why is it that we long to experience and connect with different environments and people? We believe that at the heart of travel lies the desire to explore, to grow and to enrich our souls with life changing experiences and unique perspectives.
This is a pure desire that comes from within and is deeply rooted in what makes us human. We doubt this deep rooted essence will disappear because of the currently unfolding crisis. It is this human essence that will overcome the biggest challenges and ensure that no matter what the future holds, we as humanity will find a way to continue the path of exploration and to again live these experiences we long for.
It is our belief in the importance of expanding our horizons through unique experiences that sits at the heart of our organisation. Blue Safari was never created to be just another tourism operator, instead we want to enable people to continue the never-ending journey of exploration and inspiration that has the power to drive deep reflection, connection with nature and ultimately create life changing perspectives.
Since our inception in 2014 we have been conscious of the impact we want to create and to become the custodians of one of the most diverse and precious places on the planet, the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. In collaboration with the Seychelles government and related organisations, the progressive and sustainable conservation of these millions of hectares of atolls and surrounding waters is the glue that holds everything in-place. We are constantly striving to integrate this philosophy into every facet of our experience and to ensure that our guests are completely immersed in these natural wonders, ultimately leaving them with the enrichment they are longing for.
The COVID developments have accentuated the importance of sustainability, the importance of togetherness and the importance of a true connection and real respect for nature. It has awakened us to question the nature of our existence and how we need to adapt to ensure sustainability into the future. It is this realisation which makes us more excited than ever to continue pioneering our journey of conservation, sustainability and life changing experiences. Make no mistake, the conservation continues even during these trying times.
Although our industry is rife with uncertainty, we know that we need to see through the noise and focus on emerging from the current hardship, stronger, more focused and more invigored to live our purpose than ever before.
We are excited to welcome you again to Blue Safari and would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge you, our guest and our greater family. You are the lifeblood of our operation and without you we would not be able to do what we do. It is through this very understanding, that we are more excited than ever to see you again in the near future.
Peace of mind in assuring our guests that their funds are safe with us is of utmost importance. In order to do so we have revised our terms and conditions for all confirmed as well as rescheduled bookings. Should future trips be cancelled due to COVID-19 they will be rescheduled at no charge or increase in seasonal rate to a date in the future.
