Our expert says:
Difficult to say without knowing the symptoms but I would definitely test for tick bite fever and hepatitis. They should also draw blood for malaria during a fever peak as you may miss it when drawn otherwise ( the fever peaks when the parasites are discharged into the blood from the liver) They also need to do a malaria smear as the blood test alone may not be sensitive enough. Anthrax is found in Zululand and Sleeping sickness is a remote possibility.
