We work closely with a number of safari lodges and tented camps who have made their accommodations wheelchair friendly. All our major national parks and areas of interest now have either a lodge or camp with good access – you are not limited! One example is the Ol Tukai lodge at Amboseli National Park and another is a camp at Masai Mara. The team will be there to assist you with wherever is requested or needed.
Easy Access for Travelers
With GoAfricaSafaris & Travel, our team will be there to assist for wherever is requested or needed, whether you just need help with the planning and to make sure you have accessible accommodations or transport, or if you would like assistance with daily chores. The best part of the safari is that you can design your own itinerary. You choose the destinations, activities, and accommodations as well as decide how you want to travel and how long you would like to stay in each location. The tour will work with you to fit your budget.
We provide the following accessories to make your holiday possible:
- Foldable shower/toilet chair – with or without wheels, which can also be taken along on safari.
- Hoist – we provide an electrical hoist for those clients who need assistance with lifting.
- Beach Buggy – for those travelers who spend a few days at the beach we provide a Tiralo beach buggy, which allows you to enjoy the sandy beaches and enter the ocean without a problem.
Between the training and local knowledge, your safari program is made to suit your individual wishes and abilities. Come and explore the mysteries, magic and wonders of Africa, and with our experience and expertise, your Africa safari will be perfectly in tune with your needs. We make it possible more than you could ever imagine.
- The accommodations in the parks were all very accessible and of high standard. We really enjoyed the lodges and the great care. All lodges had easy access and everyone was friendly and wonderful, from the garden to the manager.
- I am a 28 year old C5 quadriplegic who uses a manual wheelchair and knows how loosely the term “accessible” gets thrown around but this tour has the experience to back up this statement as well as the necessary equipment to make it happen.
- Go-Africa also brought a very nice beach chair to the resort to give me the option of going into the ocean. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to try it out because we were pretty busy getting married! The wedding was better than we had hoped! Yvonne made the day extra special with unique touches.
