Malaria Prophylaxis


In South Africa malaria occurs in the Kruger National Park and northern KwaZulu-Natal (north of St. Lucia). This also applies to the northern parts of Namibia (north of Etosha; especially in the Caprivi). The risk to get infected is quite low. However, since even the dangerous type Malaria Tropica occurs, one should consider prophylactic treatment. Consult with your doctor or pharmacist timeously before your departure.

Because malaria medication doesn't provide 100% protection you should avoid being bitten by mosquitos in the first place. Especially in the evenings one should be well covered and expose as little naked skin as possible. To put things in perspective: Only 1 in 100,000 mosquitos is a carrier.

Very efficient is the mosquito repellent TABARD, for sale in pharmacies and supermarkets for little money.

Generally applies: During the dry winter months (June to October) the malaria risk is almost non-existent. Risky are only the summer months (December to April).
