For those of you in wheelchairs and especially with SCI the itineraries are shown to indicate activities and safaris available.
It is our priority that itineraries are designed to suit ones specific needs and interests. When planning your holiday allow enough time on arrival and during your holiday to rest. Also take into consideration times you prefer in mornings to embark on safaris and activities. When doing a full day safari the best time to see wildlife is early morning and late afternoon.
