It is a matter of personal choice. If you decide not to take the tablets you must use a good insect repellant and cover up. Long sleeves, high neck, long trousers, not shorts, and shoes rather than sandals. Malaria is a very nasty illness and can have ongoing effects throughout life. Mosquitos are more common in the early morning and evening, but you don't want to be bitten by the one breaking her curfew!

Thankyou,. Cooke. I still feel a little uneasy, maybe if we either stay on the ship, or venture out in a bee keepers outfit !!! seems a bit o.t.t. to take 10 malaria tablets for a four hour trip. especially if they might make you ill. But malaria is not something one would wish upon oneself. So we will just have to make a decision.
