Our Top 5 Malaria-Free Safaris

|Our Top 5 Malaria-Free Safaris



There is often concern around malaria when travelling to Africa, especially when planning a family holiday.

However, malaria is not as prevalent as many believe it to be. Only a few percentage of mosquitos carry malaria, and not all of these species transmit the disease. It is also easy to prevent contracting malaria by taking anti-malarial tablets, using of insect repellent and wearing covering clothing.

Of course, if you would rather not risk it, there are a number of malaria-free destinations in Africa that offer world-class safari experiences.  Our consultants are well-versed in the art of the malaria-free safari itinerary, having regularly designed them for several clients. Whether you’re in search of a honeymoon or a family-friendly safari, here are our top 5 malaria-free safaris.
