Is there such as thing as a malaria-free safari?

For many travellers, this question simply may not occur, but for others it’s high on the list of considerations when planning a safari holiday – particularly for families. The good news is yes, there are regions within Africa where you can head out safari without the need to take anti-malarial tablets or other precautions. This makes a safari holiday far more feasible for pregnant women, those with children and anyone that’s unable to take anti-malarial medication.

These regions all lie within South Africa – one of the best countries for sightings of the Big Five and home to a wonderful range of game reserves. The most popular malaria-free region is South Africa’s Eastern Cape, with its incredible wildlife, breathtaking views and award-winning private game reserves that are well suited to first-time visitors and families. Kariega Game Reserve, Shamwari Game Reserve and Amakhala Game Reserve have a choice of luxury tents and lodges located amidst thousands of acres of private land. Each offers an all-inclusive safari experience and a range of wildlife-focused activities.
