South Africa is the only country in Africa where you can enjoy a high quality malaria free safari. This can be a big consideration if you’re travelling with children or others who are unable (or unwilling) to take prophylaxis.
Thankfully, you don’t have to compromise on the quality of your safari, or the lodges and camps, when you choose South Africa’s malaria free reserves. Travelling from Cape Town along the Garden Route, Kwandwe and Shamwari both boast superb game viewing opportunities. You can immerse yourself in conservation activities, especially at Shamwari where guests can get actively involved at The Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre, the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, and the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuaries.
For a totally private malaria free safari, choose Morukuru Farm House in the Madikwe Private Game Reserve, which is available for exclusive use. Not only can you spot all the Big Five here, but the bird watching is superb as well. Madikwe combines well with Tswalu Kalahari, where you can explore South Africa’s largest private game reserve on horseback.
