1) Medical consultation

Before you start your trip, you should consult your family doctor for comprehensive advice on possible risks! He can give you competent information and knows about certain, area-dependent diseases such as malaria etc. and tells you how you can best protect yourself!

2) Take out travel health insurance!

4) Avoid extreme heat and high loads
