Health

No vaccinations are required to enter Swaziland, however visitors should be aware of the following heath information.

  • Malaria exists in the lowveld areas (particularly in the rainy season from November to February).
  • Avoid swimming and paddling in still or slow-moving dams and rivers as bilharzia is a risk - as are crocodiles.
  • Yellow fever and cholera certificates are only required if you have come from an area where these diseases are endemic. However yellow fever inoculation is advisable.

Medical facilities throughout Swaziland are generally limited, although the clinics at Mbabane and Piggs Peak are well equipped to deal with minor problems. The larger hotels offer private medical services, and doctors and hospitals expect immediate cash payment for health services. In emergencies, visitors may be transported to South Africa for treatment. Health insurance is recommended.
