Do I need to worry about malaria?
Absolutely NOT! African Game Lodge is situated in the Little Karoo, which is a malaria free zone. That's one of the bugz we dont want at African Game Lodge.
It does tend to depend on the season but some good safe bets are:
- Loose long sleeve cotton shirts so you don't get burnt
- Long pants
- A warm jersey/jacket for nights (can get pretty cold)
- Closed comfortable shoes
- Swimming Pool Towel
