Africa

Africa is perhaps Objective's favourite continent. The people are so friendly and there is a huge diversity of cultures and landscapes. Key safety concerns would be: 

Road traffic accidents; as a generalisation, we strongly advice against driving or being driven at night.

Disease. Don't get malaria. Avoid it by covering up (especially at dawn and dusk), using insect repellant, sleeping under mosquito nets and taking the correct prophylaxis. Please remember, If you have flu-like symptoms, assume you have malaria and go to hospital immediately.  

Crime. Avoid being mugged in high threat cities such as Lagos, Nairobi & Johannesburg.
