Hearing Disabilities & Visual Impairment
No matter the degree of your visual or hearing disability, a tour or safari is possible under the care of our carefully planned itineraries and experienced guides.
Safaris for the visually and hearing-impaired clients are designed in order to create an informative all-round experience very much different to your mainstream safari. We have aspired to interpret the African wildlife experience, to 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.
On traditional 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 to 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 moves is our focus. We are aware of your needs and work hard to ensure your concerns are addressed and addressed to your satisfaction.
Safaris and tours throughout South Africa for individuals who require oxygen to be available either on a permanent, or semi-permanent basis is not a problem. Oxygen is a logistical need, easily overcome, and should not be a limiting factor on your travel arrangements.
