Vaccinations

Vaccinations are recommended; see websites below for more detailed immunization advice.

Malaria Risk

Most of the country is free of malaria and cases have been very rare in recent years. In fact there is talk of malaria being eradicated in Eswatini altogether. However, if you visit Eswatini in conjunction with South Africa, you might well visit a moderate-risk zone, which includes Kruger National Park and all other Lowveld reserves in Mpumalanga. KwaZulu-Natal parks in South Africa lie in a low-risk zone. The highest risk of transmission is in the rainy season, from October to May. See websites below for more detailed advice.
