As borders begin to open up, you may be planning on where you’ll venture to next. Tourlane, a travel company perfect for personalizing trips, conducted a survey to see which locations around the world are most desired for a post-Corona vacation. The company asked its community of travelers about their preferences and found that South Africa is the most desired post-Corona destination. 

The survey was conducted in April and May of 2020 and Tourlane says, “With borders beginning to slowly open back up and the possibility of travel starting to return, we were interested to find out if travelers’ preferences have changed and how they are thinking about their next trip. Where do they want to go? Who do they want to go with? And when is the earliest they feel comfortable traveling?”

According to the survey’s responses, 54% of travelers are anticipating going on vacation this year. The top 5 destinations that were most mentioned for a post-Corona vacation are South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, Costa Rica, and Namibia. 

Travelers chose South Africa because after months of being stuck in the house, exploring the outdoors and going on a safari is much needed. 

Unfortunately, South Africa may not be welcoming visitors for a while. In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the country has enforced strict travel restrictions and bans on visitors from the U.S. and other countries. 

It is unclear when the South African borders will open to tourism again but travel experts are hoping for a September reopening.
