Do I need to take Malaria tablets when visiting South Africa?
Certain regions of South Africa, including north-eastern KwaZulu-Natal, parts of Mpumalanga, and Limpopo, are known for their high prevalence of malaria. However, Cape Town and the Eastern Cape are free from malaria.
Prior to your trip, it is advisable to consult with your Travel Doctor to determine if you should commence a medication regimen. Some malaria prophylaxes necessitate initiation several days prior to your vacation, as well as continued usage during and after your visit. It is recommended that you discuss with your doctor which specific prophylactic medication would be most suitable for you.
