I am allergic to insect bites, mosquitoes, red ants. The swell and turn very red and itchy and hard. How is this trip when it comes to insects?Thanks

Africa is buggy for sure. If you decide to go please take all precautions against bites and stings. I just returned from 10 days in Central Africa, traveling with someone who is also highly allergic and she had a lot of hydro cream and repellent and was OK, but this is a highly personal decision as you are not close to medical help if you have an extremely severe reaction. Perhaps ask your doctor?
