Although the safari world is not exactly shouting about the fact that they welcome everyone on game drives, many are making attempts to be more accessible. Ensuring that safari lodges are on one level, or have adapted bathrooms, and easy access to minibuses. We have specialist safaris on offer in Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa, which cater for wheelchair users, although facilities for people sensory or cognitive disabilities are not as high up there on the agenda. However, it is definitely a start. It is also worth speaking with our safari companies who are experts in tailor made itineraries. They know their destinations like the back of their hands, as well as their safari guides, accommodations and activity providers. So, they can find out if a balloon ride over the Masai Mara might work for you, if the bush is manageable in a wheelchair on a walking safari or if a one to one guide is available to lead you across the plains if you are visibly impaired. So perhaps an open canoe safari on the Zambezi is easily within your abilities but, until now, way beyond your dreams. Self-drive safaris are a great option for tourists with mobility issues, as long as the tour operator can guarantee an adaptable car, if needs be.
