Malaria Free Safari Options in South Africa

The Kruger area is a popular safari destination, however some people have concerns as it is rated as a Malaria area. The good news is that there are several other excellent game viewing regions within South Africa where you can see the Big Five that are certified malaria free.

The first area is located approximately three hours north of Johannesburg and is known as the Marakele National Park. Characterized by the scenic Waterberg Mountains, there are several private game lodges that offer a superb game viewing experience. Mist often shrouds the mountains in the early mornings and it is quite a surreal experience to be out on a game drive and watch the early morning activities of the wildlife.

The second area is the Addo Elephant National Park. Located in the Eastern Cape it is approximately an hour's drive north of Port Elizabeth which is the nearest domestic airport. Famous for its large elephant herds the park now boasts all of the Big Five. Numerous private lodges are located in and around the reserve and game viewing activities range between guided game drives and bush walks. Some of the lodges also offer game viewing from the Sundays River which flows through the reserve.

Located near to the Addo Elephant National Park is the Shamwari Private Game Reserve. Having won many awards as a conservation area and private game lodge it is well known internationally. It tends on the pricey side but if you are looking for a truly amazing safari experience then it is well worth it.
