We may know Your Needs

Our disabled-accessible safaris, holidays & tours to Uganda are still developing, and we are still opening up new routes according to customer demand. At this stage, outside the major cities, most holidays are only suitable for manual wheelchairs, although there are a few exceptions for power chairs.

We know that not all disabled or special needs travellers have the same needs, and it is important to be mindful of your unique situation on a Uganda safari holiday, travel, and accommodation.

Travellers with limited mobility will not have the same requirements as people who are visually or hearing impaired. We at Msafiri tours offer a variety of trips to multiple locations and of varying duration for people with a variety of special needs, and your Uganda trip can be tailor-made for you, even down to a private departure.

We will always be at hand to help

  • We will ensure that you are accommodated every step of the way even with the limited available facilities.
  • We may even offer a personal caretaker for those travellers that have more specific medical needs, and may be able to even provide power wheelchairs and commodes should the need arise.

Wheelchair-Friendly Holidays & Safaris Description

We will attempt to interpret the experience in the most accurate way possible by using descriptive, detailed explanations to paint a picture of the traveller’s surroundings, especially when it comes to wildlife sightings.

There may be opportunities on safari or tour to exit the vehicle, and in places where it is safe to do so, travellers can exit and touch and smell things to enhance their experience. Some of our visually impaired travellers seem to get a more holistic experience than those travellers who rely solely on vision.

Accessible Africa Safaris for Hearing Disabilities & Visual Impairment

No matter the degree of your visual or hearing disability, a Uganda tour or safari is possible under the care of our carefully planned itineraries and experienced guides.

Accessible Africa Safaris -Hearing-impaired clients:

Safaris for visually and hearing-impaired clients are designed in order to create an informative all-around experience very much different to your mainstream safari.  We have aspired to interpret the African wildlife experience, for those with visual and hearing impairments, in a unique way. We use descriptive, explanation techniques, to paint visual pictures, enhancing any wildlife sighting experience. Where it is safe to do so, we exit the vehicle, to touch, smell and/or feel, anything of interest. Combined, these senses will provide a far superior experience for an individual, who is only relying purely on vision or hearing.

For many people, disabled or otherwise, having some sort of in-country assistance is absolutely essential, whether you are travelling alone or your disability necessitates travelling with friends or family members.

Accessible Africa Safaris – Listening with eyes closed:

On our traditional Ugandan safaris, we often stop, to listen, with our eyes closed – this enlightens a new world to those with sight, showing how much those with sight depend on it.  The sound of Africa at night, is one of the most thrilling experiences for those with heightened listening skills, due to lack of vision, and for those with vision – Africa at night is full of new and interesting sounds.  We work in detail to ensure you satisfy all your concerns during the design process.  For those with hearing loss; it is touch, feel, smell and visual stimuli of all that move our focus. 

We are aware of your needs and work hard to ensure your concerns are addressed and addressed to your satisfaction.

Accessible Africa Safaris – Language Translation:

 We are here to help with arrangements and other bureaucratic issues and in some of our destinations where English or your primary language is not widely spoken, our local Msafiri tour guides will serve as translators.
