Malaria In Zambia
Consider the entire country of Zambia as a "High Risk" destination year-round, including the capital of Lusaka. Although Zambia is making considerable strides in combating the disease in certain areas and regions, the country must still be regarded as "High risk", so please, take you anti-malaria tablets when travelling here.
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 Zambia, there are regions that are higher risk than others, but as a whole treat the entire country as a malaria destination.
