Many foreign travellers, in particular, are extremely concerned about malaria when they plan bush or safari holidays in Africa, and justifiably so because the infection rate on the continent is extremely high.
This makes South Africa the ideal bush destination but many people, parents in particular, don’t want to play even those low odds and will choose Big Five family holidays in areas that are certified malaria-free such as the Eastern Cape.
It has also been home to a flourishing pride of White Lions since 2006. The white lion rehabilitation project is one of Pumba’s key biodiversity projects, and attracts many interested guests from different parts of the world.
