Safari Health Essentials

What to bring in your first aid kit.

Pack a great deal of on mosquito repellents and sunscreen to protect your skin. Take along a medical kit complete with bandages, antiseptics, painkillers, medicine for skin cuts, allergies, travel-sickness and diarrhea to name a few. It might be a good idea to see your doctor for a complete medical check-up and perhaps a dental check-up before leaving.

If the location you are traveling to is known to have cases of malaria, pack some malaria medication.

You can talk to your doctor about it. Make sure you also find out about the drinking water quality in the area you will be staying in. If you are not sure that it is potable, try to drink only bottled water.
