Wheelchair Vacation
Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport by your guide, who will drive you 4-hours to Mpumalanga - "the place where the sun rises", driving eastwards through Witbank, before dropping several hundred feet into the subtropical Lowveld and the scenic Drakensberg Panorama Route.
 
Check in and relax in this region that is famous for its wildlife.
Day 2
This morning we visit Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary to experience a very special close-up encounter, where for 1-hour you can interact with and feed one of these gentle giants.
 
Balance of day is free to relax at your lodge or explore more of the beautiful Panorama Route with your guide (pay any entrance fees locally).
 
Note: There are no accessible toilets at the Elephant Sanctuary.
Day 3
Today enjoy a scenic half day transfer through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest on earth. Enjoy wonderful views from Pinnacle Rock, Wonder View and the Three Rondavels lookout.
 
Afterwards 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, you will have the flexibility of discussing preferred routings and travelling times with him 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 closed air-conditioned vehicle.
 
Explore this vast 2-million hectare game sanctuary that is the size of Wales, offering magnificent game viewing opportunities with 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 at your rest camp, before setting out again at the time of your choice - usually the late afternoon - for another game drive. For each full day that you stay in the park (excluding transfer days) you will have one game drive in a large open-top vehicle operated by the park authorities (normally at night) but this can be substitued for a day drive or bush walk, subject to availability.
 
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 many different 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. If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 7
Enjoy some final game viewing in the Kruger National Park, before we travel 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 may wish to visit Elephants Walk, a small crafts complex across the road from The Kingdom hotel, where you can see talented local artists and sculptors at work and support them by buying one of their items. Alternatively you can participate in various optional activities, such as a helicopter flight over the falls or 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 in the town of Victoria Falls on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
 
Many optional activities are available in this small town, where adrenalin seekers come to participate in adventure activities such as canoeing down the Zambezi River, white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), abseiling and bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
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.
