Malaria In Namibia
The good news in regards to safaris in Namibia and the threat of Malaria is that the disease only occurs in the north of the country and the Caprivi Strip/ Zambezi region. The bads news is that Etosha National Park is in a malaria area, although saying that the risk of malaria in the winter months (peak season) is low.
Most if not all international health organisations and doctors will always recommend taking prophylaxis when entering a Malaria zone, whether the risk is low or high.
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.
