Wheelchair Vacation
Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport by your guide, who will introduce you to the beauty of Eastern Transvaal on your 4-hour drive through farmlands and mountains to Mpumalanga and the scenic Drakensberg Panorama Route - the gateway to the famous Kruger National Park.
 
We drive via Lydenburg and the scenic Long Tom Pass, from where Boer guns battered the British during the South African War, before checking into our hotel in the warm Lowveld.
Day 2
This morning we visit an Elephant Sanctuary which gives you the opportunity to experience a very special close encounter with these gentle giants.
 
Balance of day is free to explore the beautiful Panorama Route with your guide (pay any entrance fees locally) or relax at your lodge.
Day 3
This morning your guide will share with you the splendour of the Drakensberg Panorama Route as we drive through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest canyon in the world, where you can enjoy wonderful views from the Graskop Gorge Lift and God's Window.
 
In the early afternoon we continue to Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre where you have the unique opportunity of viewing wild lion, leopard, cheetah, eagles and vultures at close quarters. Animals found injured, poisoned or orphaned are given a second chance and released back into the wild. Afterwards check into your lodge in this region famous for its wildlife.
 
Note: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is closed on Sundays.
Day 4
Today we enter the world famous Kruger National Park.
 
Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even giraffe before you reach your rest camp.
 
The Kruger National Park offers a choice of self-catering rest camps, each situated in a different section of the park with its own unique flora and fauna - e.g. Skukuza, Letaba, Olifants, Lower Sabie, Pretoriuskop, Satara and Berg-en-Dal. Accommodation is in simple but comfortable thatched bungalows, with your guide having an allowance to purchase breakfast at the camp restaurant each day.
 
After checking in, settle in and relax in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Note: You will need your passport to enter the Kruger National Park.
Days 5 To 6
Today is devoted to game viewing in the Kruger National Park. As you will have the services of a private driver/guide throughout your safari, you will have the flexibility of discussing preferred routings and travelling times each day. However we recommend setting off early each morning as the camp gates open (04h30 to 06h00 depending on the season), to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day. All game drives will be in your guide's air-conditioned vehicle.
 
Explore this vast 2-million hectare game sanctuary that is the size of Wales, offering magnificent game viewing opportunities and the highest concentration of lion in the whole of Africa. Hope to see several of the Big Five today - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - as well as many other species before returning to your rest camp for breakfast (or buy provisions at camp and cook breakfast at a picnic spot).
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the camp swimming pool and enjoy bird watching, before setting out again at the time of your choice - usually the late afternoon - for another game drive with your guide. With nearly 150 different species of mammals and over 100 species of reptiles in the Kruger National Park, you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed, with over 500 different bird species including eagles, kingfishers, vultures and storks.
 
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Note: Vehicles are not allowed to drive off-road in any national park in South Africa.
Day 7
Enjoy some final game viewing in the Kruger National Park, before transferring 5-hours  through the scenic Eastern Transvaal to Johannesburg.
 
Check into your hotel conveniently situated near Johannesburg Airport.
Day 8
You will be transferred today to Johannesburg Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Victoria Falls Airport and transferred to your hotel near the mighty Zambezi River.
 
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains, but they are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
 
Note: As there is no lifting equipment at the airport, you will be carried on and off the aircraft using an aisle chair. Accommodation is also not fully accessible & very limited.
Day 9
Today we visit the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforest, which offers magnificent views.
 
Afterwards you can participate in other optional activities such as an elephant interaction.
 
In the late afternoon enjoy a Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River where you may see hippos, crocodiles and abundant bird life.
 
Note: We suggest you take your own raincoat for the rainforest, as those on hire are well used. On the Zambezi cruise you will need to be lifted into the boat, so this excursion is only suitable for manual wheelchairs. There is no accessible toilet on board.
Day 10
At leisure to relax at your hotel on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
Day 11
Transfer to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight home.
 
Note: As there is no lifting equipment at the airport, you will be carried on and off the aircraft using an aisle chair. Accommodation is also not fully accessible & very limited.
