Health & Travel Clinics



Since we are not medical practitioners we can only offer guidelines based on our experiences and would recommend that you consult your GP or Pharmacist or follow any of the useful links shown below for any specific concerns.



MALARIA - It is important to take professional advice about anti-malaria drugs but, to minimise the risk of contracting the disease, the most important concern is to avoid being bitten.  The disease is transmitted by female Anopheles mosquitoes that are active in the early evening and throughout the night, so care should especially be taken when sitting around the campfire or dining table and when asleep.  Wearing long-sleeved shirts, trousers, socks and shoes together with the liberal use of insect repellents, will certainly help avoid bites.  Should you prefer, we can propose an itinerary to an area which is malaria-free.

VACCINATIONS - Health regulations in some countries may require you to have certificates showing certain inoculations.  For example, a yellow fever vaccination certificate can sometimes be required, so up-to-date information should be sought before travel.
