Health Care and Malaria
- Most towns have private doctors and clinics. In the cities and larger towns you will find private hospitals and specialists. The private medical care is of very high standard but expensive. Make sure you have a travel insurance covering you for medical emergencies!
- Cape Town and Western Cape is completely free from malaria.
- If you are planning to travel to Kruger National Park you might need to take malaria tablets, depending on season and which parts of the park you will visit. There are several kinds of tablets but most of them need to be taken several days before, during and after visiting malaria areas. Speak to a travel clinic or GP for advice.
