Although never formally asked to close, Kalimba Management decided to close the Reptile Park for the month of April for the safety of our Staff and for the safety of our valued customers.
As this global pandemic has evolved so has our fight against it, and in Zambia the economic backlash of this crisis has been felt much more than the decline in public health.
The decision was therefore made to reopen the park on the 1st of May. Life as we know it must continue, but with caution. Respecting public health measures of mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing we have been open for two weeks with our restaurant and bar closed. This seems to have functioned well and our customers were thrilled to be able to get out, go fishing, have a picnic, and getting some fresh air - all things that are important in these strange times.
Following the Government’s announcement this week in which restaurants have been allowed to reopen, we have decided to completely reopen the reptile park to its full capacity, but of course maintaining all of the public health regulations.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to Kalimba, and trust each one of you to be responsible in keeping yourselves, your families and our staff safe, all while keeping our local economy and businesses open.
