Only one of the South African National Parks is in a malaria risk area and that is the Kruger National Park, although even here the risk is usually low.
Anti-malaria prophylactics are recommended for visitors for Kruger. The highest risk period is between December and April (end of the rainy season).

Visitors wishing to take prophylactics should consult a knowledgeable medical practitioner about recommended medication.

The threat of malaria should not affect your decision to enjoy and experience the Kruger Park, but is something one should be aware of and take precautions to be exposed to.

The National Parks Board has introduced a daily conservation fee applicable to all parks.
Please view details.
