You’ll be happy to know that we are not a Malaria-risk area and there is no need to get vaccinated.
In summer we do however have those pesky little mosquitoes, so it is still a good idea to bring insect repellant.
Pack light cool clothing, particularly if you are going on a hike.
Your shades does not only make you look cool, but will also help protect your eyes from the harsh Karoo sun, bring them along with a hat and sunscreen.
Winter (June – August):
For winter visits you should pack warm cloths, temperatures often drop below zero at night and every so often we wake up to a spectacular view of a frosted landscape.
