      Yellow fever vaccines if you have traveled to countries in South America and Africa prior to your visit to South Africa( see the list of countries on the CDC website) You would only require anti malaria tablets if you are visiting Kruger. There is no malaria risk in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The CDC recommends Hepatitis A and Thyphoid Fever vaccinations.

      All travelersAll travelers You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel. Routine vaccines Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. These vaccines include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot. get_vaccinated hygiene Most travelers Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting. Hepatitis A CDC recommends this vaccine because you can get hepatitis A through contaminated food or water in South Africa, regardless of where you are eating or staying. get_vaccinated eat_drink Typhoid You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water in South Africa. CDC recommends this vaccine for most travelers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas, or if you are an adventurous eater. get_vaccinated eat_drink Some travelers Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US. Hepatitis B You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures. get_vaccinated avoid_body_fluids avoid-non-sterile-equipment Malaria When traveling in South Africa, you should avoid mosquito bites to prevent malaria.

People who will be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers). People who are taking long trips or moving to South Africa Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck. get_vaccinated animals Yellow Fever There is no risk of yellow fever in South Africa.

      9/2/2014 12:54:05 PM
      Yes Melody, prescriptions must be in the pharmacy container and vitamins in the original container. Depending on where you are visiting, you might need to take Malaria precaution tablets about 6 weeks before travel. I can certainly give you more information if you would like to contact me. 704-489-0367

      9/2/2014 2:57:10 PM
      Hi Melody, It als depends on where you are travelling to. Many countries have there own rules in regards to prescription medicine. If you need malaria pills the best is Malarone start one day before heading into Malaria prone areas and at the end of your stay you must use them 7 days after leavng the area. There are cheaper products on the market but with a huge amount of side effects .... And no I am not a salesman or I am a travel agent and have used Malarone on 4 trips and no complictaions. For more info check the following site if you live in the UK : http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/2593.aspx with warm regards, Alfred Kerkvliet the Netherlands

      Hi Melody, if you are travelling to SA then the following rules apply: Medicines: You are allowed to bring in one month's supply of pharmaceutical drugs or medicines for your personal use. Any other pharmaceutical drugs or medicines must be accompanied by a letter or certified prescription from a registered physician, and have to be declared.

      Hi Melody It is always safer to keep any medication in the original container and have the description of the medication with you. Just a note: I travel to sth Africa every year and have never been asked about my medication. Regards Werner Dorgeloh

      Good Evening Jerry - I could answer this better if you filled in the blanks; where are you going? Are you going with a tour operator? I'm not sure what you are doing so it's a little vague. Thank you. You can reach me at Candace@posthastetravel.com

      4/17/2014 12:08:26 PM
      Hi Jerry, I believe if you use common sense as a traveler, whether on business or holiday, then you should be safe. Some of these things would be: don't travel at night, don't walk the streets at night - if possible, go in a group or by taxi if going to a restaurant, during the day while sightseeing, do not cloak yourself in all the jewellery you possess, avoid city centres carrying large cameras and other valuables. Take guided tours when you are not sure about where you are going. Keep passport and other valuables in the hotel or room safe. Be vigilant. If someone tells you an area is not advisable to travel/visit - don't. Hope this helps. kind regards Marion Wentzel-Reprich Africa Inspirations Canada 1-705 641 8227

      4/15/2014 6:50:50 PM
      Hi Michael, I know several of the people who have responded to your inquiry and I'm confident they are capable. Some are travel agents who will use a tour operator (either US or South African) to put your program together. Others, like myself, are tour operators who are directly affiliated with operators in South Africa. My company, Safariline, is affiliate with Wilderness Safaris who is arguably one of the largest safari outfitters in Southern Africa with operations and safari camps in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia. Thus, whether you are just planning to stay in South Africa or venture elsewhere in the region, such as Victoria Falls, we have you covered. Despite our affiliation with Wilderness Safaris and their buying power, I am not obligated to use any of their properties when creating your personal itinerary. It would be a pleasure to chat with you and get a feel for what you have in mind. My advice and recommendations are free. Even if you have begun working with someone else it never hurts to get a second opinion. There are such a plethora of options that rarely do two safari planners recommend exactly the same trip; so evaluate which options are best for you. Like others have mentioned I'm a South Africa Specialist and have traveled across South Africa multiple times as well as all the other safari countries. I've arranged over 300 safaris. Let me know if I can help you. Michael@Safariline.net or (630) 393-9533 CST. www.safariline.net
