Hi eva christine

I did this trip a couple of years ago and was wondering the same thing before I went. I took the decision not to take them and looking back, in my opinion, it was probably the right choice. The tour guide also seemed to think tablets were not necessay.

However, at the end of the day, the choice is yours, there is still a risk although small. Do what you feel comfortable with also make sure you take the normal precuations and use a good repellent.

Your in for a great time
