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:

Travel to Iran (updated January 2020)
We will not be operating tours to Iran during the 2020 season due to the escalation of hostilities between the US and Iran. We will continue to work with our Local Partners to assess the situation on the ground and at this stage will look to return to Iran in 2021. All journeys impacted will either be re-routed or withdrawn. Please contact one of our Travel Advisors for further information.
