Malaria & Safety – Matobo NP
Organized safaris to Matobo National Park are safe in our opinion. Of the people you will meet, most will be tourists or staff working for the park, lodges and tour operators.
Malaria & Vaccinations
Health concerns include malaria. You can protect yourself from it by applying a mosquito repellent of at least 30% DEET and taking antimalarial medication. Also be sure to cover exposed skin in the evening too. There are vaccinations you should have before you travel to Zimbabwe – consult your local doctor.
