When to Go on a Malaria-Free Safari

Our recommended malaria-free destinations can be comfortably visited at any time of year though the question of exactly when to go on a malaria-free safari still remains in that you will need to time your visit to coincide with what you want to experience.

Accessible and rewarding all through the year, Cape Town and the Garden Route are best visited in the drier summer months from November to April when temperatures are the balmiest and rainfall the lowest.

The malaria-free game reserves of the Eastern Cape are year-round destinations, as is Madikwe Private Game Reserve though game viewing is at its best during the May to October dry season.

Mauritius and the Seychelles are year-round destinations too although it pays to do a little research to find out the optimum time for activities such as diving and deep-sea fishing. You can find out more by contacting one of our Africa Safari Experts.
