Malaria-free Game Reserves

Malaria-free safaris are not a myth and if you want to see the ‘Big Five’ with the best possible safety, then our guide will give you expert advice on finding the perfect safari for you. 

There are several ecologically diverse areas of South Africa that make up the perfect location for Malaria-free game reserves. 

Many people choose the Malaria-free game reserves because they are traveling with children, elderly or unable to take medication. Malaria does carry a stigma that can put people off travelling to Africa, but be assured now you can enjoy all the wonders of an African safari without the need to run a million miles if you see a mosquito. 

The majority of the Malaria-free reserves are in South Africa and they still offer amazing safari experiences. Whilst some of the more world renowned game parks are not Malaria-free (like Kruger National Park and KwaZulu-Natal regions) many private reserves have now been set up in Eastern Cape.

Areas like Waterberg, Pilanesberg and Madwikwe offer an enchanting experience due to the successful relocation of animals to these game reserves. 

Popular Malaria Free Game Reserves

The Eastern Cape region is very popular since you can combine a safari with a visit to Cape Town. Some of the best Game Parks in this region are along the Garden Route and include:

You’ll find all of the big five here but it’s also been to known to throw up viewings of whales and great white sharks too.
