Drinks containing water

Hi all,

Travelling to Magic Life Africana next Friday, really excited. However, a friend who travelled a few years ago mentioned about the water.

I plan on only drinking bottled water. But as I am All Inclusive at the hotel, is it safe to drink the drinks from tap, beer and cocktails? My doctor said I didn’t need to have the Typhoid injection that’s why I am a bit worried.

Thankyou for your help!

There is nothing wrong with the tap water - it just has a high mineral content so can have an adverse effect on your constitution but it is fine for cleaning teeth, washing in.

Beer, cocktails etc will be ok - just check that the ice is not from the tap water, but even if it is it is a small amount.

Typhoid? - if you drink from muddy puddles, ponds or streams then it may be a risk lol

Bottom line - your Doctor's advice is the one to believe.

Have a great time.

Most quality hotels will use mineral water for food and drinks, that will include ice and washing of fruit and salads, if in doubt ask the bar staff,

Tap water is ok for oral hygiene as stated above but it is highly chlorinated,
