Malaria In Zimbabwe
As a destination, travelling in Zimbabwe is a high-risk destination in all areas lower than 1200 metres above sea level when it comes to malaria, especially the peak periods of November through to June (summer and autumn months). The cities of Harare and Bulawayo have a lower risk, but a risk all the same.
As a general rule, consider the entire country as a malaria area, precautions do need to be taken.
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 Zimbabwe; there are regions that are at higher risk than others, but as a whole, treat the entire country as a malaria destination.
