Travel updates and information

At Sundowners Overland the safety of our clients is paramount. When world events occur we consult a number of sources and evaluate the situation before making any operational changes to current or upcoming itineraries. These include government advisories and the World Health Organisation appraisals, the expert and in depth knowledge of our local partners who are constantly monitoring condition, as well as assessments by our Tour Leaders who provide an immediate response from our destinations.

We always endeavour to provide an alternative that will not diminish the overall experience of your journey when itineraries have to change. In extreme situations we may choose to cancel departures.

We would encourage you to ensure that you have comprehensive insurance prior to travel and to do some research on the destinations that you are travelling to. Our Travel Advisors will happily provide you with more information as required.

The best way to receive up-to-date government advice on specific countries is to register yourself with your nationality’s government travel advisory website:

Australia: Tel: 1300 555 135 (within Australia)

New Zealand: 

Georgia - May 2024 

There have been significant demonstrations related to the proposed “On Transparency of Foreign Influence” law around the Parliament building and on Shota Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi. Recent demonstrations have seen confrontations and violence between attendees and law enforcement officials. This has not been focussed on tourists.

Our journeys in Georgia are continuing as scheduled with no changes to itineraries. We will of course continue to monitor the situation and will adjust on the ground as necessary. Our accommodation is located away from the Parliament and we will avoid those areas.

Foreign travel advice levels remain unchanged.

Please contact one of our Travel Advisors with any queries.
