Malaria Free Safaris
South Africa has malaria-free safari game parks and so too do certain areas within the neighbouring countries, Namibia and southern Botswana (note, the swampy inland Okavango Delta is not malaria-free, neither is Etosha. It’s just the very dry, southern regions of the two countries). For more info of exact areas, check out the WHO’s International Travel Guide, the CDC’s Yellow Book or chat to your local Travel Clinic.
Right, back to South Africa. If you want to enjoy a world-class safari experience, but don’t see yourself gulping down malaria prophylaxis tablets, there are a number of phenomenal game-viewing locations with none of the mosquitoes that carry the disease. This is reason enough for choosing a malaria-free safari.
