Malaria Prophylaxis Recommendations
Both chloroquine resistant and normal strains of malaria are prevalent in Africa. Malaria is transmitted by some female Anopheles mosquitoes, which are active in the early evening and throughout the night usually when one is sleeping or sitting around campfires in the evening. Expert opinion differs regarding the best approach to malaria prophylaxis. It is important to bear in mind that malaria may be contracted despite chemoprophylaxis, especially in areas where chloroquine resistance has been reported. Please remember that the best insurance against contracting malaria is to try to prevent oneself from being bitten, so use mosquito repellents liberally. Wear long-sleeved shirts and trousers/slacks in the evenings. If staying in a bungalow/tent, spray with an insecticide like DOOM to kill any mosquitoes that may have flown into your room. Mosquito coils are also effective. If you become ill on your return, while still on prophylaxis or even once you have stopped, make sure that your doctor does everything necessary to establish that your illness is not malaria. Malaria is not a serious problem if people are sensible and take basic precautions. We do not have camps in any densely populated areas, and this greatly reduces the risk of being infected by malaria. We have had very few cases of guests contracting malaria during the 10 years we have been operating.
Yellow fever innoculation
Yellow Fever inoculations are necessary. This must be done no later than 10 days prior to departure. Proof of innoculation will be requested upon arrival in the country and on return home.
We strongly recommend that you take out a fully comprehensive travel insurance policy covering medical expenses and evacuation, trip cancellation and baggage coverage. We can assist you in this regard. Wild Frontiers and its associates cannot be held responsible or liable for loss, damage, or theft of personal luggage and belongings, nor can they be held liable for personal injury, accident or illness. Please ensure that you have yourself and your belongings adequately insured before your departure. Insurance is compulsory for all our trips. If you do not possess a policy, we can issue insurance at competitive rates. It is however better to purchase your policy locally as this will cover you for repatriation back to your home country. Please contact Wild Frontiers, your broker or your travel agent for details. We cannot be held liable for any losses or damages incurred.
a) Health Insurance
It is compulsory to have full medical, emergency evacuation and repatriation cover for the period of time you are away.
b) Cancellation and Curtailment
You might have to cancel or curtail your safari due to unforeseen circumstances. If you cancel a trip close to departure date for any reason you could lose all that the safari was going to cost you. Should you have to leave the safari early, we cannot refund you the portion of the safari you do not complete. Dependant on the reason for cancellation and curtailment, insurance may cover you for this eventuality.
c) Baggage & Money Insurance
It is advisable to take out baggage and money insurance, especially if you are carrying a large amount of cash or expensive and valuable camera equipment. You should always carry such equipment as "carry-on" luggage. Do not put anything of value in your checked baggage!
If you anticipate an insurance claim upon your return, be sure to document as accurately as possible any accident, injury or loss. Doctor’s notes and police reports will aid any claim.
