Access Africa: Safaris for People with Limited Mobility (Bradt Travel Guides(slow Travel))) (Paperback)
In Europe, 14% of the adult population is classed as disabled; the figure is 21% in the US. But the horizons of people with limited mobility, whether through disability or age, are fast expanding. This guidebook is the first to explore the six major safari countries -- Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa -- specifically with limited mobility in mind. It discovers accessible accommodation in world-famous locations such as the Serengeti/Masai Mara ecosystem in East Africa, Zambia's Victoria Falls and Botswana's elephant paradise, Chobe. With explanations of flight and airport procedure, travel insurance and health concerns, and suggestions for itinerary planning, it opens the doors of Africa to those with limited mobility.
Gordon Rattray worked in Africa as an overland driver until his adventure was cut short by a diving accident which resulted in quadriplegia. He still travels regularly and runs a disability travel advice website.
