Malaria riks in Freetown Sierra Leone

I am travelling to Freetown in January and am taking the yellow fever shot and the malaria prophylaxis. How bad are mosquitos, how prepared should I be?

I am prone to get mosquito bites anywhere I go.

We will be staying with a family in a residential area, do I need to worry?

Sounds like you are taking the necessary precautions. Watch your clothing and if they treat the room before you sleep, I wouldn't worry too much. Enjoy.
