At the risk of propagating a dodgy cliché – Africa remains one of the last frontiers of travel. Largely rural, Africa is one of the few destinations where adventure and danger lurks around every bush, scrub or ‘unexplored’ pathway. While Africa is any quintessential traveller’s dream, disease and sickness poses a serious threat to travellers. Finding out what vaccinations and immunizations you need before travelling into Africa is an important part of planning your trip. We consult a travel clinic medical advisor.
