Our dynamic team share a common goal of providing support to establishments within the tourism industry to improve accessibility for people of all abilities and to sharing our experiences with other travellers with disabilities to assist them in making informed decisions when planning a visit to our magnificent country.
The team came together through our mutual wanderlust, desire to improve accessibility throughout South Africa, and eagerness to take to the open road, so you’ll find a ready willingness to visit your establishment, a keen sense of adventure, and first hand wisdom on the accessibility challenges of their respective disabilities . We are all passionate about travel and working with tourism brands to support them in the journey towards universal access.
Our team is available to visit and experience an establishment’s facilities and provide a comprehensive feedback report on current accessible features with recommendations on adaptations for consideration. We understand that the idea of renovating an entire establishment to conform with UA standards can be daunting, but sometimes accessibility can be as simple as rearranging furniture.For establishments that meet accessibility requirements, our endorsement badge will be awarded and available for display on your website and marketing materials.
If you’d like to collaborate with any, or all, of our team please pop us a message.
