Malaria


Malaria Info
Malaria is a common and potentially serious tropical disease, carried by Anopheles mosquitos and often associated with travel to Africa.However, prevention and treatment of Malaria is possible, and the risk of Malaria should not stop you from visiting the Kruger National Park. Most of South Africa has very little or no risk of malaria (scroll down to see a Malaria map for South Africa), and even the Kruger National Park has a low and manageable level of risk for most of the year. The rainy season (from December to April) presents the most risk, yet thousands of tourists from all over the world visit the Kruger Park during this time without contracting Malaria.

Malaria Symptoms
The first symptom of Malaria is usually fever. If you experience flu-like symptoms (headaches, fever, sweating, nausea) within six weeks of visiting a Malaria region, consult your doctor immediately and inform him that you have been to a Malaria region. A case of Malaria that is diagnosed and treated early can usually be successfully cured.

Malaria Prevention
Prevention is always better and easier than cure, so take the following steps to avoid contracting Malaria:

  • Avoid being bitten by mosquitos. Keep insect screens closed at night, sleep under a mosquito net, and cover exposed skin with insect repellant or light clothing. The greatest time of risk is between dusk and dawn, and the greatest area of risk is the ankles. A ceiling fan or air-conditioned room will also lower the risk of mosquito bites. If you do get bitten, don't panic. Most mosquitos do not carry the Malaria parasite.
  • Use antimalarial (anti malaria) drugs (prophylactics) prescribed by your medical practitioner. Various different kinds of anti malaria medication is available, and your doctor or travel clinic will be able to recommend the best type for you. Usually these prophylactics should be started before you enter a Malaria region, and continued for 14 to 21 days after you leave. If you are pregnant, please speak to your doctor before embarking on a journey to a Malaria region

We take the health and safety of our guests very seriously. We provide you with air-conditioned accommodation and excellent doctors,hospitals and pharmacies available within easy reach. In the region Kruger Park South  the risk of Malaria is considered low to intermediate and cases of Malaria are rarely reported.

Kruger Park


Visitors to any National Park in South Africa will pay a conservation fee for every day spent inside the Parks. The old vehicle fee has fallen away and has been replaced by the new daily fee. Only by visitors contributing to conservation, can funds be raised to help conserve the parks natural and cultural heritage.

Conservation fees are charged per person per day and can be paid in advance or upon arrival at the Park. For frequent visitors to Kruger National Park an affordable Wild Card loyalty program is available which allows access to specific National Parks (clusters) without having to pay the daily conservation fee. This makes visiting a National Park affordable and rewarding at the same time.

Standard Daily Conservation Fee: International Visitors (1 November 2010 - 31 October 2011)

Per Adult: ZAR 204.00
Per Child under 12: ZAR 102.00

Standard Daily Conservation Fee: South African Residents with I.D. (1 November 2010 - 31 October 2011)

Per Person per day: ZAR 50.00

Per Child under 12: ZAR 25.00

The daily cards for South African residents may only be purchased at the parks and you will be required to furnish proof of your residency, in the form of an Identity Document, driver's license, passport or relevant proof of residence from Home Affairs.

Please Note:
Members of SANParks loyalty programme WILD do not pay conservation fees provided that proof of Identity and their WILD card are shown on arrival.
•A non-refundable fee, payable in advance, of R32 per person is charged on all advance reservations for day visits. This is charged in addition to conservation fees and applies equally to WILD members.

 

Advanced Bookings For Day Visits To Kruger National Park [tel:012-426-9111]

Visitors who wish to use this facility should be advised that advanced bookings can be made through any of the booking offices no less than one day prior to date of arrival at the Kruger National Park and that using this facility will come at a minimal and non-refundable cost per person of R32 per person entering the park. This fee will be payable (in advance) by all who wish to make a day visitor booking in advance. Please note that this fee is separate from the normal conservation fee payable upon entrance of the park and Wild Card holders will also be required to book.

Guests with day visitor bookings will also be expected to arrive at the booked gate by not later than 13:00 on the date of booking, after which time the booking lapses. Guests should ensure that they do not arrive at a different gate from the one they made advanced bookings at.

Advanced day-visitor bookings will only constitute 60% of the gate’s day-visitor quota, with 40% being kept open for visitors to enter on a first-come first-served basis. The gate quotas are limits per gate on the number of day-visitors that the area and infrastructure adjacent to each gate is able to support to ensure a good visitor experience.
