Experience the magic of the African bush, with peace of mind
Your health should be the last thing on your mind when traveling to Africa for a safari, and for the ultimate peace of mind, you may be looking for a malaria-free safari. Malaria is a common problem in parts of the continent, and while it may be readily avoided using anti-malarial medications, it can still be a concern for tourists, especially those traveling with loved ones.
Thankfully, there are many top-notch locations in Africa that provide an entirely malaria-free safari experience without compromising on the quality of the fauna and flora found elsewhere on the continent, so you won’t need to sacrifice the caliber of your safari to ensure your health is unharmed.
