Medical aspects for the visitor.

   By Scapey on Tuesday, June 24, 2003 - 12:41 pm: Edit Post

The Western Cape mosquitoes have NO malaria - the nearest malaria region is more than 500km away.

The most popular insect repellants are Tabard and Peaceful Sleep containing Diethyltoluamide (Deet) - both sold at supermarkets and chemist shops.

Foreigners must use suntan lotion with a protection factor over 20. The europeans come here with their factors 6 & 8 and they burn to a crisp. Our shops normally have a good supply of high protection factor creams.
