Malaria In Botswana
Malaria is only found in the northern half of Botswana year-round with the disease peaking in the summer months (November through to June). As always we advise one to visit a doctor or travel clinic for anti-malaria medication, no matter the time of year. Better safe than sorry.
Unfortunately, the northern regions play host the most popular Botswana travel destinations including; The Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONE MUST ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR, PHARMACIST, LOCAL MALARIA SPECIALIST BEFORE EMBARKING ON A HOLIDAY TO A MALARIA AREA - THE CONTENTS BELOW ARE DESIGNED TO BE A GUIDE ONLY - CONDITIONS DO CHANGE.
Have a look at our 'Malaria In Africa' page for more information on the disease.
The below map shows where malaria is found in Botswana, there are regions that are at higher risk than others, but as a whole treat the entire country as a malaria destination.
