Unfortunately there have been increases in the number of cases in Okavango, Ngami, Chobe, Boteti, Tutume and Bobirwa.
Malarial transmission is at its highest during the warmer and wetter months of November to April, and the mosquitos are general active in the early evening and throughout the night, at the times when you are usually sleeping or sitting around the campfire. The best prevention is to avoid being bitten - therefore a good mosquito repellent is recommended (Lodges generally provide a good spray version). We also suggest that you wear long-sleeved shirts/ blouses and slacks/ trousers in the evening – as this aids in bite prevention.
In terms of medication to prevent Malaria – please consult your Doctor or local Travel Clinic for the most up to date information, before you travel, as the actual parasites (and there are four species) that cause the malaria can become immune to the medication.
