There is no risk of malaria in the major cities including Durban.
Delegates visiting the Kruger National Park, some areas in Mpumalanga, Limpopo and northern KwaZulu-Natal should take a course of anti-malaria tables before entering these zones.
Practice safe sex, just as you would do in your own country. South Africa has one of the highest rates of HIV in the world, but you will not be at risk unless you have unprotected sex or share needles.
South Africa has strict tobacco control regulations in place. It is illegal to smoke in any indoor, enclosed or partially closed area open to the public. This includes public transport and restaurants. Should you wish to smoke, it is best to keep to designated smoking areas.
As in most other countries across the world, the use and trade in illegal substances is against the law in South Africa and could lead to a jail sentence.
For your own safety, please do not experiment with any of these substances.
High-quality tap (faucet) water is available in urban areas including Durban. It is generally safe to drink water straight from the tap, except in informal or rural settlements.
Water should not be drunk straight from rivers and streams, especially downstream of human settlements.
