Those damn mozzies. They’re hard to escape, especially in Africa. But Malaria-free spots in South Africa do exist.
They can be found in several ecologically diverse regions. If you want to experience those life-changing destinations without worrying about taking those nasty malaria pills, there are options.
Here are some of our top picks to travel to, free of malaria. You don’t have to be game to experience the big game parks.
Madikwe Game Reserve
Currently the fifth largest game reserve, Madikwe Game Reserve is also one of the lesser-known parks in South Africa. It’s situated in a protected area of South Africa, which is part of the latest park developments in the country. Experience South Africa’s unique wildlife in four to five-star luxury accommodations.
Addo National Park
Not far from Port Elizabeth in South Africa, Addo National Park offers a diverse range of wildlife and is one of the country’s 19 national parks – coming in third. Situated in the dense valley of the Sundays River region, Addo National Park is a memorable experience, for all the right reasons.
Kwandwe Private Game Reserve
Last but not least on our list of malaria-free hotspots is Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. It’s a world-class Big Five safari game park reserve, also close to Port Elizabeth. Stay in luxury lodges and embrace the wildlife, while still staying safe.
Bite the bullet and book your South African adventure
South Africa has a wonderful range of malaria-free holiday spots. Traveling with children to South Africa doesn’t have to be risky. Don’t let the idea of catching malaria put you off from visiting.
