Cape Town is a malaria free area. It’s not really safari territory but you can still have a wild animal experience by taking a shortish trip inland where they have malaria free game farms. The Tourism offices at Burg Street in the city and at the Waterfront have piles of brochures. You will be spoiled for choice.
I know people who have had awful reactions to the new generation of anti-malarial drugs. It’s a catch 22 situation because you are advised to take them, but you could end up ruining your holiday if you are one of the unlucky people who reacts badly to the drug.
The standard of accommodation is usually very good in South Africa. Our B and B is almost back to back full for the Soccer World Cup. However I am sure you can still find accommodation. Try visiting the websites of Web Reservations International, A A Travel, Sleeping-Out, Safari Now, Travel Selection or Reservations Africa.
The first match in Cape Town is a week today!
