Malaria Risk

Lesotho is free of malaria. However, if you visit Lesotho 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. The highest risk of transmission is in the rainy season, from October to March. See websites below for more detailed advice.
