  1. The Eastern Cape is a malaria-free region which means that you do not need to take any anti-malaria medication. Many travelers do ensure that their vaccinations for Hepatitis A and typhoid are up to date as an additional precaution.
    When travelling to rural and wilderness areas throughout South Africa, including the Eastern Cape, you should be aware of ticks. The bite of tiny pepper ticks can cause irritating itchy bumps which, in isolated cases, can give rise to tick bite fever which needs to be treated correctly.
    Tick bites can be easily prevented by applying insect repellent. This is readily available at all lodges in the Eastern Cape.
