On your physician's advice, you should at least consider all of the standard vaccinations (tetanus, polio, typhoid, hepatitis A). Yellow fever vaccination may also strongly recommended for travelers over the age of nine months.

Malaria and Mosquitos

Your our PCP or travel physician will advise on what malaria prophylaxis would be best for you. In our opinion Malarone is a good option for a safari of less than a month. It offers good protection and has few side-effects though is more expensive than the other options available.

The best way to protect against malaria is to not be bitten by a mosquito in the first place. We recommend that you pack and keep on hand a mosquito repellent (spray/roll on/stick) and preferably one that contains at least 20% DEET. Keeping vulnerable areas (such as knees and ankles) covered up during the early mornings and evenings will also help prevent being bitten. All rooms are fully insect proof.
