Malaria control

The Timbavati (TPNR) has very few to no cases of malaria on an annual basis. The TPNR conducts a malaria control programme. Mosquito numbers are highest during the wet summer months of the year and during these months all camps are sprayed at regular intervals. This action is to assist with reducing the probability of visitors contracting malaria.

Coupled with this action, the Department of Health, performs regular checks in summer and all staff are tested to ascertain if there are any “malaria carriers” amongst them as they put their colleagues at risk of infection. Timeous treatment of these individuals avoids further cases.

Lodges and camps are located in low risk malaria areas. Concerned guests are advised to consult their Doctor before travelling to ask about taking prophylactics.
