Malaria-free destinations

Many of our luxury safari destinations lie within Africa’s malarial belt and although the risk is often minimal or seasonal, you are strongly advised to work with your safari expert as well as a medical practitioner or doctor to identify the severity of the risk plus what steps and what medication to take to avoid contracting the disease.

The best time for a luxury safari

Africa’s seasons have a huge impact on the movement, behaviour and concentrations of animals – and it pays to know where to go and at what time of year. The most guaranteed game sightings are traditionally during the destination’s dry season when the vegetation has thinned out and many animals are concentrated around permanent water sources.

Pack light

It’s important to remember that if you’re catching light plane charters your luggage weight might be restricted to as little as 10kg (20 pounds) per person. It’s also advisable to use soft bags that can fit into the small overhead compartments.
