Are you on this trip with us? We would like to say hello.



Is anybody out there? We are a family of 4. Fred is 11 and Liv is 9. This is a real adventure for us. We would love to say hello to any fellow travellers.


Apart from the fact that we seem to be leaving on a different date, I think we're on the same trip as you. We are a family of four, two of us v two teenage boys (13 and 15). We're all looking forward to it, for very different reasons.

We're in the throes of visas and vaccinations, what are you doing about malaria tablets? We've been advised to get the really expensive ones



We are not in a malaria endemic area until the final few days when we stay overnight in a village close to the malaria area. The main thing is to avoid getting bitten. Long sleeves. Mossie nets and lots of mossie spray. Citronella oil is recommended as a great deterrant also. May choose not to take tablets as have made me sick in past and for most of trip risk is low. will take some tabs if local reports suggest high risk as can start few days prior to high risk area in south.
