MEDICAL

Malaria is prevalent in most African countries. Most of South Africa and Namibia are free of malaria. But if you are traveling to other parts of Africa such as Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique and others you should talk to your doctor about taking the malaria prophylaxis drug Larium or possibly one of the other anti-malaria drugs on the market.

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE

A travel policy will ensure that you are covered for trip cancellation and medical evacuation for the duration of your trip.
