Key points to help you minimise the risk of being bitten:

Ø Wear long sleeve cotton shirts and long trousers covering the ankles (you can use socks) especially from dusk to dawn

Ø Use Insect repellents. Roll on or spray on. Carry a roll on stick in your pocket and apply when needed.

Ø Use your mosquito net which would be provided by your accommodation

Consult with your local doctor, health/travel clinic or Disease Prevention Centre for the most up to date medication relating to malaria prophylaxis.

There are 3 types of malaria tablets:

1) Malarone

2) Doxycycline

3) Lariam

Your medical practitioner will advise you on which medication suits you best.
