Is Botswana A Malaria Area?

Malaria is common in the Northern parts of Botswana such as the Okavango Delta and Chobe areas particularly during or after rainy season from November to April.

The strains of malaria and the precautionary drugs used to avoid malaria are different all over the world. It is recommended to seek medical advice from your general practitioner before you depart for your Botswana Ecotourism Safari. Pregnant and very young children are not advised to travel to malaria areas.

Tips to avoid getting bitten by mosquitos include wearing long sleeves, socks, closed shoes to keep your body covered, sleeping with a mosquito net and using mosquito repellants and coils.

It is each guest’s sole responsibility to ensure they have all the necessary immunisations, inoculations and medications prior to departure.
