Being home to the 'Big Five' (lions, rhinos, leopards, buffaloes, elephants), this safari camp in the Greater Kruger National Park of South Africa does fall within a malaria area, and precautions do need to be taken when visiting this region.
The Klaserie region is a low-risk malaria zone. It is best to consult your local Doctor for advice. The type of medication needed for the Kruger area is Malarone, Doxycycline or Mefloquine. Mosquitos are more prevalent in the wet season. Therefore, mosquito repellent and creams are essential preventative measures.
During the dry season, the vegetation is sparse, and wildlife congregates around watering holes. During the wet season, the vegetation is dense, and wildlife is more dispersed. Expect to see the Big Five over the course of a 2-3 night stay. There is a resident pride of lions called the River Pride that is often spotted close to the banks of the Klaserie River.
Also, to the Big Five animals that are regularly sighted include giraffe, zebra, warthog, spotted hyena, baboon, hippo, impala, kudu, vervet monkey, waterbuck, wildebeest, bushbaby, mongoose, duiker, and steenbok.
You might also see wild dog, cheetah, badger, porcupine, aardvark, civet, caracal, and serval. Birds that are regularly seen are vultures, owls, bee-eaters, rollers, eagles, bustards, hornbills, starlings and strikes.
