Disability travel in Africa


Most parts of Africa are likely to be less geared up for caring with disabilities than we have come to expect elsewhere.

Most areas are not wheelchair friendly in the conventional sense, with smooth surfaces, ramps and lifts on which to get around. But there is plenty of willingness to help and, if necessary, the muscle power to make things happen. We have met people in wheelchairs out in some very remote camps.

That might not seem like much of a solution to a wheelchair user who just wants to get around quietly under their own steam, but Africa forces us all to step out of our comfort zones from time to time ... and usually for the better.

Needing help is a sure way to make friends in Africa.

If you are concerned that a disability might restrict your ability to travel, then the best thing to do is contact us, be explicit about your particular circumstances and we work with you to build a trip which takes this suitably into account. We may even be able to put you in touch with past customers who are willing to share their experiences.
