Malaria Free Safari
Malaria can be easily prevented with medication, however some travellers prefer to steer clear of malaria-areas, especially those with young children, pregnant women, the elderly or those who prefer not to take anti-malaria medication. If, justifiably, the risk of malaria ponders on your mind there are plenty of game reserves in South Africa that offer world-class safaris without the concern of malaria. In fact, South Africa is the only country in Africa that can officially offer a fully malaria-free safari experience.
An authentic Big 5 safari in the African bush can be enjoyed without forgoing anything in terms of your safari experience or the quality of the accommodation at a wide selection of malaria free game reserves. The assured malaria-free safari areas are the Eastern Cape, North West Province (including the Pilanesberg National Park and the Madikwe Game Reserve), and the Waterberg. The great news is that these reserves offers brilliant wildlife viewing and outstanding safari experiences, so you won’t need to compromise on quality to ensure a malaria-free trip.
