How do I avoid contracting malaria when travelling to Tanzania?

We strongly recommend taking anti-malarials preventatively. We suggest you consult your physician to decide which drug could work best for you. Besides medication, the single best precaution to protect yourself against contracting malaria is by preventing mosquito bites.

Mosquitos that are responsible for transmitting malaria are most active during dusk and dawn. In general, it’s recommended to stay indoors at this time. If your room has no air-conditioning or isn’t well-screened, it’s best to sleep under a mosquito net.

If you are outside when mosquitos are most active, you can protect yourself by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and a hat in a very light colour. Apply insect repellent to all exposed skin, but not under your clothes, and wear clothes that are treated with permethrin. Also, burn mosquito coils when you are sitting outside.

You can choose to only use mosquito repellent at this dawn or dusk, but you can also use it throughout the day. This way you protect yourself against different types of mosquitos that are active during the day. Among them are mosquitos that carry yellow fever and dengue fever.

If you feel ill with flu-like symptoms, it’s important to seek professional medical help right away.
