Welcome to Accessible South Africa. Highlight text to listen in text to speech.
The Accessible South Africa website has been created to showcase accessible tourism in South Africa. We aim to provide comprehensive, transparent information for travellers with disabilities while supporting establishments on the ongoing journey towards universal access.

Accessible Travel South Africa
We are not a ‘policing’ body on the road to universal access. On the contrary, we aim to empower and uplift differently-abled travellers by providing information on travel experience. To do this, we need as detailed as possible descriptions, including things that may be less accessible or not accessible at all. Our aim is to give people a good idea, before they go, so that they can choose where to go, according to their own needs.
With pictures, too, the more the better. Pictures of ramps, stairs that may need to be negotiated, bathrooms etc. are very helpful.
Our checklist is standard features, and searchable, if you feel we are missing something crucial, let us know! We’re all helping each other along on this journey!
