Safety

In our opinion, there are no real safety concerns when traveling in Kwandwe Game Reserve. Most people present are either working there or fellow travelers. The park is usually a crime-free zone.

For independent travel to the park through South Africa, we recommend reading the general safety precautions below and the ones for cities and other urban areas.

Malaria-Free & Vaccinations

It isn’t necessary to take antimalarials if you are visiting Kwandwe, since it is located outside of the areas where malaria is present. However, antimalarials are advisable if you intend to visit the Kruger Park area during summer. When visiting South Africa, in general, it is recommended to have several vaccinations prior to travel. Consult your nearest travel clinic.

Wildlife Viewing

There are always risks when viewing wildlife, but you should be well protected by listening and following the instructions of your guide. You should also take note of the 'wildlife viewing safety precautions' below.
