However, safaris and other adventure activities for disabled people and those with limited mobility are a rapidly growing market, and there are more options now than ever. We decided to organize this tour to provide equality between both Disabilities and Non Disabilities people. Even so, the decision to go on safari is significantly easier than trying to sort through all the information available and planning your itinerary. If you are a special needs traveler, or a family member or friend of a special needs traveler, contact Karagwe Tours and Safaris to arrange your itinerary and your needs before.
Travel and tourism is a social right that concerns every human being. However, it is estimated that over 500 million disabled people in the world do not take holidays. For those with some form of disability, many of the existing tourism offers are not easily accessible. At Karagwe Tours and Safaris, we recognize that disability is not inability to tourism.
A safari in Tanzania only for internal, and one that overcomes the inherent disability in the person. More importantly, life takes on a new meaning. The safari itself gives pride in accomplishment and encourages you to take on new adventures and challenges, thus helping to overcome fear. Karagwe Tours and Safaris have successfully handled adventures for wheelchair travelers, small groups, and slow walkers. Our personally escorted tours reflect a particular fondness for continued learning and cultural intrigue. Our experience and commitment to specialty travel allows us to design travel programs that harmonize unique needs and individual capabilities. Choose any tour from the special interest or adventure tours offered, and this will be designed to suit your pace, special medical needs, and care.

We can assist you in planning your own tour package! Just let us know where and when you would like to travel and we would be happy to assist you in planning a wonderful vacation for yourself as an individual or as a group.
Please note that these tours are usually tailor-made two months before the tour departure date. This gives us time to adjust our accommodation facilities to favor the nature of our client’s disability, which include the adjustment of the tour van seats and sitting arrangements, bookings in suitable hotels and lodges, allocation of suitable staff to handle the clients’ needs such as the hiring of wheelchairs, escorting personnel, nursing staff, and sign language guides.
Each tour is personalized to suit each guest taking into account their disability, which is why no prices are listed. Each disability is different and each tour cost changes with special requests and the guests’ “wish list.” Customize your tours and safaris with us. If you are as passionate about travel and feel you can take it on, allow us to help you explore this world of opportunity and fulfillment.
