Gen Quests Re South Africa

Hello all: I will be in South Africa bet Apr 1 to Apr 15. Mainly in Durban - any idea about what the weather will be like there ? Is SA malaria prone ? Should I be taking anti malarial medication ?

Any suggestions on what to do in Durban ?
Thanks

That's usually a great time of year for Durban weather-wise. No problem with Malaria, the only Malaria-endemic area in S.A. is in the far NE part of the country, way North of Durban. See http://www.malaria.org.za/Malaria_Ri.../risk_maps.htm.

Take a look at the relatively new aquarium, iShaka Sea World (one of the 5 largest in the World) at uShaka Marine World (www.ushakamarineworld.co.za). And the Natal Sharks Board shows, if that's of interest. But note that not all of the shows include the shark dissection. Also boat trips from Durban harbour to see the shark nets being serviced, but I've not been on one of those. See www.shark.co.za. They're in Umhlanga Rocks, in the North of Durban.

The weather should be perfect.

I suggest 1 or 2 day trips to the Southern Drakensberg, the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park and the Hluhluwe/Umfolozi Game Reserve.
