What We Do
Accessible South Africa is 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 experiences.
By partnering with tourism establishments we intend to promote universal access and create experience-based opportunities for people of all abilities to enjoy facilities provided, and to encourage and support establishments in the ongoing journey towards universal access.
This includes information for travellers who are / have:
