- Disabilities & the Disabled
Africa wheelchair accessible holidays
Planning a holiday can be stressful, but planning a holiday when you have a disability is always challenging to say the least. Having this in mind, a friend of mine -who enjoys travelling but has experienced many frustrations in doing so because he has a spinal injury- created Access Africa to offer wheelchair accessible holidays in comfort for the adventurous disabled traveller who wishes to experience South Africa.
Access Africa was established based on the personal experiences of a spinal injury traveller so they include facilities and services which benefit from first hand experience of the demands and frustrations when travelling with a disability abroad. Access Africa can tailor your holidays according to your personal needs. Equipment aids such as shower chairs and mobile hoists are provided on request at no extra charge because their policy is based on equal opportunities and they don't expect a disabled person to pay more because they require extra facilities.

Your will stay at the private and exclusive Ekuthuleni lodge which is situated 20 min from Durban International Airport on the scenic Kwazulu Natal south coast known as the " Garden Province " of South Africa.
The accommodation at Ekutheleni Lodge is set amidst indigenous gardens and has majestic ocean views. The chalets –serviced daily- blend into a luxurious setting of Acacias, Mango trees and local flowers and the rustic thatch roofs merge tastefully into the natural surroundings. Each chalet can accommodate 6 guests. For comfort the chalets benefit from custom made doorways to provide easy access to wheelchairs. All units have flush floor showers.
