Travel Health

Your health and wellbeing is important to us. 

Certain parts of South Africa are NOT malaria-free and you must take precautionary measures.  Personal protection against mosquito bites should be the focus of malaria prevention if you plan to travel in and around South Africa. 

Malaria

  • Malaria risk mainly due to P. falciparum exists in certain parts of South Africa and bordering countries
  • Malaria is distinctly seasonal in Southern Africa and predominantly occurs during the rainy months between September and May, with January to April being periods of high transmission.

Malaria Advisory by:  The South African National Travel Health Network (https://www.santhnet.co.za/)

Malaria precautions

  • Personal protection against mosquito bites should be the focus of malaria prevention.
  • It is important for travelers visiting any of the malaria areas within Southern Africa and elsewhere to take appropriate precautions and maintain a high index of suspicion for symptoms of malaria on their return.
    • The occurrence of an acute febrile/ flu-like illness in the month after return must prompt an urgent malaria blood test and follow up of results.
    • The use of preventative medication can be considered on an individual traveler basis.

Measures to prevent mosquito bites include

  • Wearing long pants and socks
  • Applying topical mosquito repellants to exposed skin areas that contain at least 20% DEET
  • Burning of coils for repelling mosquitoes
  • Sleeping under mosquito nets treated with long-lasting insecticide when in high transmission areas
    Use of air- conditioning and fans where available
  • Staying in dwellings with screened windows and doors
  • The use of preventative medication can be considered on an individual traveler basis.
  • Please check with your doctor about suitable antimalarial tablets.
