Due to very effective spraying with DDT the risk has been greatly reduced and only personal protective measures are advocated. However post visit any fever or flu like illness must be regarded as malaria until proven otherwise.
Exposing a 2 year old to malaria risk is not a smart move. However if you must go and take him with then either Malanil Paed tablets given with condenced milk or Larium can be used Dose according to weight.
If you still insist on going, remember your ''catty'' for monkeys and security can be a problem! The other problem is sun exposure esp for little one.
