Safety

Amakhala Game Reserve is in our opinion safe to visit. Most of South Africa’s crime issues happen outside of its well-run parks and reserves.

Malaria-Free & Vaccinations

Amakhala is located outside the malaria zone. Unless you also plan to visit parts of the country where malaria can be a risk, there is no need to take antimalarials. There are several vaccinations advisable for travel to South Africa and, therefore, to Amakhala. Consult with your local travel clinic.

Wildlife Viewing

All wildlife viewing includes certain safety risks, but you'll be fine when listening to the instructions given by your guide. Also, take notice of the 'wildlife viewing safety precautions' below. Walking safaris are conducted by very experienced armed guides who will usually spot any dangerous animals from far away and know how to avoid provoking them.
