Yellow Fever is required by law for all travellers entering into Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania. Having travelled in a yellow fever area, you may be required to show proof of your yellow fever vaccination upon returning to your home country.

Malaria is rife throughout Southern and East Africa, which is considered a high-risk area.

Your local General Practioner may also recommend either/or of the following vaccinations depending on the country to which you are travelling:  Tetanus, Typhoid, Rabies, Polio, Hepatitis A and B and Meningitis.
