Malaria Prophylaxe

Wir halten uns zur Zeit in Tunesien auf und haben vor Marokko, Mauretanien, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso und Ghana zu bereisen.

Leider haben wir unzureichend vorgesorgt, was den Schutz gegen Malaria angeht. Daher einige Fragen:

Lariam\ Mefloquin:
In welchen von den genannten Laendern ist es moeglich Lariam zu bekommen – wo dort genau (Staedte\ Orte)

Crème und Spray gegen Moskitos:
Welche Wirkstoffe sind zuverlaessig gegen Moskitos? Von DEET und Bayrapel haben wir gehoert, dass sie helfen sollen. Wo bekommt man diese Mittel? Da ab Mauretanien die Malaria-Zone beginnt interessiert uns besonders, ob in Marokko bzw Mauretanien derartiges erhaeltlich ist.
In Tunesien gibt es ein Produkt Namens Mousticalm mit Zitronensaeure als Wirkstoff. Wir wissen allerdings nicht ob es zuverlaessig ist.

Das gleiche Problem – wo gibt es sie zu kaufen – wie muss es beschaffen sein?

Insektiziede zur Impraegnierung von Netzen und Kleidung:
Welche Wirkstoffe/ Produkte sollen benutzt werden? Gibt es sie in Marokko bzw Mauretanien?

Fuer jegliche Information waeren wir sehr dankbar. Bitte schreibt uns an durruti@berlin.com und miss_mary@web.de.

Beste Durruti,

Niet het beste idee om in het Duits op deze site vragen te stellen. De meeste mensen op deze site zijn zeer hulpvaardig, maar verstaan enkel Engels. Neem dus eerder een kijkje op de Duitse site van Klaus Daerr:


Ze zullen je wellicht daar beter kunnen helpen. Gute Reise!!! Beatrice

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
