Five countries in three weeks: Madonna travels the globe despite the pandemic
The 62-year-old singer apparently flew from Los Angeles to London with her boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams (26) and four of her children – David Banda (15), Mercy James (14), and twins Estere and Stella (both 8) – on Christmas Eve.
In London, they picked up Madonna's son Rocco (20), whom she shares with UK-based director Guy Ritchie.
The famous family then made the trip to Malawi, including a stopover in Egypt on December 28.
Traveling via private jet, the superstar clocked up a total of 11,707 air miles during her sun-soaked winter vacation, the Daily Mail reports.
According to sources, Madonna also had her private photographer, Ricardo Gomes, flown in later to capture their trips in Malawi and Kenya.
She shared the family adventures on social media with her followers, the majority of whom have probably been staying in their homes due to coronavirus restrictions.
Madonna's family was exempt from quarantine rules in the UK
The family spent a week in Malawi, where they met with President Lazarus Chakwera and visited a hospital, which Madonna founded in 2017. On Wednesday, January 13, they flew to Kenya for a safari.
According to The Sun, the family members have been taking regular coronavirus tests.
When Madonna landed in London, 10-day self-isolation was mandated for US arrivals, but since December, "high-value business travelers" have been exempt from the rules. Madonna and her family seem to have fallen into that category.
Travelers arriving in Malawi and Kenya do not have to quarantine, as long as they can present negative coronavirus tests.
