Safety

Amakhala Game Reserve is in our opinion very safe to visit. All South Africa’s parks and reserves are virtually crime-free. There is some crime in towns and cities, so normal precautions should be taken when visiting urban centers during your trip (see ‘Cities & Other Urban Areas: Safety Precautions’ below). The vast majority of travelers don’t have any crime-related incidents during their visit.

It’s worth checking the government travel advisories (see the ‘Safety & Security – South Africa’ link below) for up-to-date information about safety in South Africa in general.

Malaria-Free & Vaccinations

There is no malaria in Amakhala. 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. Consult with your local travel clinic.

Wildlife Viewing

Wildlife viewing is very safe as long as you listen to the instructions given by your guide. Also, take notice of the 'Wildlife Viewing Safety Precautions' below. Optional walking safaris are conducted by very experienced armed guides and your safety will be ensured at all times.
