"if i was living in kenya, i am sure i would not be on malaria meds everyday"

No, and that's not what we were talking about. I don't take meds, there's no point, as a resident. But this forum is primarily, although not exclusively, for *tourists* to Kenya, for whom it is strongly advised to take preventative meds, and that's what was being addressed here.

You suggest "covering up". Well, if you've spent any great time at the coast and are not used to our extremely humid conditions, you will understand that covering oneself from head to foot in a hot area is simply impractical.

Personally speaking, I swear by mosquito repellent sprays, one in particular called MosiGuard, and I have yet to sustain a bite whilst wearing it. I certainly don't intend to dress myself in a buibui every time I wanna go sheikh my bootie down at Forties of a night!

Apologies to the OP for the thread hijack. Hope we can get it back on track by saying, in one sentence: no, there is no reason why children cannot come to Kenya!

"are used" not "are not used". Duh. I see you didn't look up the definition of "recursive" either ;-). I'm assuming you mean "recurrent"?

And Simon - valid point. I've had malaria and, unlike Richard, I'm not okay. I get relapses and have ongoing side effects.

Ok, point made, hijack over, apols.

Thanks FL410

Quite right "there is no reason why children cannot come to Kenya!"

Providing the parents get acurate advice ;)

Took my 13yr old (at the time) back in 2001 he loved it, he's planing on going back with his girlfriend next year.
