This will depend on where you will be visiting. We suggest that you check with your travel consultant.

Malaria Information:

  • Most areas in Africa are malarial areas. Your safari consultant will let you know if you are visiting a non-malaria area. Otherwise, we strongly advise you to consult with your physician prior to the commencement of your holiday, for information on precautions against malaria. If you are visiting Kruger areas, as well as the Zambezi basin, we suggest you contact your physician or travel clinic for advice as to which treatment is recommended. Malaria transmission is at its highest during the warmer and wetter months of November through to April.

Yellow Fever Information:

  • Vaccination against yellow fever is required if arriving within 10 days from Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, or countries with risk of yellow fever transmission. This list changes often so please check with the CDC or Canada Health for the most up-to-date information. (See quick links)

Exempt from yellow fever vaccination:

  • Children under 1 year provided a medical certificate can be submitted stating that it is undesirable to inoculate the baby.
  • Those not leaving the airport in the countries with risk of yellow fever transmission.
