It is usually recommended that children under 5 years should not visit a known malarial area unless this is absolutely neceassary. Having said this if you do decide to take your little daughter to the Kruger Park the best malaria prophylactic for her is Malanil Paediatric tablets. Speak to your pharmacist about this. Treatment has to be started one week before entering the malarial area. Other mosquito avoidance measures must still be used as well.
