Travelling in South Africa - Health & Hygiene

South Africa is a safe place to travel, even as a woman alone. Common sense is all you need really to get by without problems. Below is a collection of useful information to help you get off on the right foot. We are always happy to discuss these matters in more detail with you by telephone or email. We have many years of experience and have lived in the country for over a decade and will be able to help you with any questions you may have.

Heath & Hygiene

Local safety standards and regulations of South Africa will not necessarily conform to North American, European or Western health and safety standards. It is important that you are aware of the risks involved as you are responsible for the suitability of your travel plans. Countries teeming with wildlife are always also rich in smaller wildlife such as insects, spiders and mosquitoes and all the health issues they bring with them. It is important to understand that their presence does not necessarily indicate a lack of hygiene or cleanliness but rather is a fact of life!

You should discuss your own particular needs and contra-indications to vaccines or tablets with a medical practitioner, at least 4 weeks before travel, for up-to-date, individual advice.
