Please note: the best insurance against malaria is to protect yourself
from mosquito bites.
From sunset wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants in light colors such as beige or yellow. Dark clothing attracts mosquitoes, as does the scent of perfume or after-shave lotion. Use an effective insect repellent on clothing and any exposed areas of your skin.
Before retiring at night lower the mosquito net above your bed which is hanging in a knot from the frame or the ceiling. Search carefully for mosquitoes hidden inside. Mend any holes or tears with adhesive tape or thread. Tuck the edge of the bed net under the mattress, making sure there are no openings.
The tents used on safari are mosquito-proof, so better not leaving the tent flaps or doors open, even during the day.
