Malaria risk in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Caprivi Strip of Namibia, Vic Falls

Jump to last reply

Our travel doctor recommended malaria pills after looking at his list, but after reading the side effects and some of the forums from the past--I'm wondering if it's necessary in the winter season, when it's dryer.

We like to be smart travelers, but we don't want to ruin our trip being sick from the pills. (The list of side effects for Malarone sound like a terminal disease.....) Our prescriptions await pickup, so if you have some good information on this, please share.
