Trying to decide whether we need to spray all of our clothing with permethrin this time of year. Would you recommend doing so on South Africa Elegant Adventure trip that begins Nov. 1?
It can’t hurt to do it as a precaution, but ask your travel doctor.about Malaria protection, take your itinerary and vaccination records to show what you already have cover for. On one of my two trips to Victoria Falls there were lots of mosquitoes.
Appreciate the advice. Thank you.
Just back from that area in early October. No mosquitos in SA, but lots in Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls). And that was before the rainy season started. Highly suggest malaria meds (subject to your doctor's advice, of course). ALL of Zimbabwe and the northeast corner of SA are endemic areas for malaria.
