Malaria-free is the only option for many families, and kiddie-friendly destinations allowing parents to relax without the stress of this nasty mosquito-borne parasitic infection is the top priority.
Not to stress, as the Safari Guru team has extensive years of living the safari life with our precious little ones, we have learned the ins and outs of living amongst the risks and avoiding them.
We will combine several areas in South Africa for your peace of mind, offering risk-free travel without the need for anti-malarial medication.
From Cape Town and its spectacular wine regions to the most rewarding oceanic experiences along the coastline to experience Africa's biggest congregation of breeding southern-right whales! And, of course, not to forget some of our flagship safari destinations, concluding an enriching and well-rounded holiday.
South Africa and our travellers benefit significantly from these malaria-free safari areas. They can be great options at certain times of the year for the concerned family. The majestic Madikwe Game reserve bordering Botswana and close to the Kalahari Desert is one such malaria-free area. It is the fifth largest game reserve in South Africa and offers numerous luxurious lodges which cater to families and couples alike.
In the southern Kalahari of South Africa, one of Safari Guru's preferred properties is located in a malaria-free area with two luxurious lodge options. This beautiful and unique offering is Tswalu Kalahari. This really is an ultimate off-the-beaten-track luxury escape offering a huge variety of wildlife experiences, from meerkats to the massive and majestic black-maned Kalahari lions, Aardwolf to Aardvark, and the chance to see the shy and endangered pangolin.
Other malaria-free reserves in South Africa, including Kwandwe Private Game Reserve and Shamwari Game Reserve, all offer excellent wildlife viewing with highly trained safari guides and camp personnel.
Further, Namibia is malaria-free during its winter months and in the Namib-Naukluft. Additionally, areas of Kenya and Tanzania are too high for the malaria-carrying mosquito to survive. So, if avoiding anti-malarial medication is of importance to you – contact us for more information.
