Travel to a malarious area such as West Africa. Take no anti-malarials and steer clear of insect repellents. Spend the evenings in rural areas, close to stagnant water, and sleep outside unhindered by a mosquito net. To ensure a serious illness, ignore any fever and stay well away from medical care. If you would prefer to avoid malaria, call the Masta Travellers' Health Line on 0891 224100 for a printed health brief.
