Disabled 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 Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary to experience a very special close-up encounter. You can hold their trunks and feed two of these gentle giants, with total interaction time of 1.5-hours.
 
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).
Day 3
Today enjoy a scenic 3-hour transfer through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest on earth, where you can enjoy wonderful views from 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.
Day 5
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. 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 6
Today leave the Kruger National Park and transfer 5-hours to Johannesburg Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city, within sight of Table Mountain.
 
Check in and relax in your magnificent surroundings.
Day 7
Today your guide will collect you for a full day tour of Cape Town.
 
We start with a short tour to see the key historical and architectural sites of the "Mother City". Weather permitting, we will then ascend Table Mountain by cable car to enjoy one of the world’s most famous views (alternatively we drive up Signal Hill, with its wonderful view point).
 
We continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, where there is the option to take a boat ride to see the Cape Fur seals at Seal Island (pay locally).
 
Afterwards we visit Kirstenbosch Gardens, nestled on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and regarded as one the most beautiful botanic gardens in the world. Bequeathed to the nation by Cecil John Rhodes, the garden was established 1913. There is an avenue of camphor trees, a beautiful protea and fynbos garden, useful plants garden, sculpture garden and a dell garden as well as a world class collection of indigenous South African flora. Wonderful summer sunset concerts are held in the gardens on Sunday evenings from December to March.
 
Note: For the optional trip to Seal Island you will be lifted in your manual wheelchair into the boat, so this will not be possible for very heavy guests, nor for power chairs. If you prone to travel sickness, you may want to take preventative tablets in advance. There is no accessible toilet on the boat.
Day 8
Today your guide will collect you for a full day tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
  
Enjoy wonderful ocean views as we drive around the Cape Peninsula to naval Simonstown, where we visit the resident penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
 
We continue to Cape Point where we hope to see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July to November). We take an accessible funicular ride up to the Old Lighthouse, before returning via spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive to Cape Town.
Day 9
Enjoy a full day tour through the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry. We visit the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several different wine estates – sampling as we go.
  
After lunch at a good restaurant or wine estate (own account), there is the option of visiting the Cheetah Outreach Project in Somerset West on the way home (pay entrance fee locally).
Day 10
Today your guide will drive you 2-hours from the Cape Peninsula along the scenic coastal route through Gordon’s Bay and along the False Bay coast to the small seaside town of Hermanus.
 
Along the way we visit Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, renowned for its fynbos flowers.
 
We continue to Hermanus and explore this small town on foot. It has an interesting open-air craft market in season and a coastal path with indigenous fynbos and bird life. There is a small beach at the foot of the cliffs, with steep access. From July to November, southern right and humpback whales come here to breed and it is considered the best location for land-based Whale Watching in the world. Once severely endangered, these magnificent creatures of the deep are now breeding successfully in the area due to a major international conservation effort.
 
On the way back to Cape Town, enjoy some wine tasting at a local Wine Farm.
Day 11
Transfer to Cape Town Airport for your flight home.
