Medical aspects for the visitor.
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.
