Welcome to the John X Safaris website!
Health & Medical Requirements & Precautions
All of John X Safari's hunting areas in South Africa are Malaria-free.
Note that our areas in Mozambique ARE Malaria areas, all clients must ensure the necessary preventative precautions are taken before your arrival. Please consult your local doctor regards Malaria medication.
No inoculations are required for travelers visiting Southern Africa, we do however advise clients to ensure that their tetanus shots are up to date.
We recommend you visit your doctor before leaving on safari if you have any permanent health issues. Bring along extra prescription drugs if required.
All our hunting vehicles and camps are set up with full first aid kits for minor field injuries. We do however recommend bringing along a general antibiotic and basic medication for headaches, colds, flu and stomach ailments. Advil has proven to be the best in the past.
Please ensure you have an extra pair of glasses or sufficient contact lenses if required. Dark glasses are recommended for early mornings and late afternoons when the sun can be at a very uncomfortable height. Dark glasses also act as a form of eye protection when traveling on open vehicles.
We recommend bringing along a good sun block of at least SPF 30, as the African sun is something to take seriously.
If you have any doubts about medical issues, check with your local doctor or travel clinic. As neither may be fully conversant with the different African regions and their relevant medical issues, always use John X Safaris as a backup as well.
