Disability Tourism and travel in Africa.
We at Claudious Tours and safaris have recognized that disability is not inability to travel. Demand for accessible tourism offers is growing, and the tourism industry is starting to recognize that tourists with disabilities form an important consumer group of travelers. Claudious Tours and Safaris specializes in arranging tours for the physically impaired, blind and the deaf in the community. We work with a wide range of safari lodges, tented camps, hotels and beach resorts to make sure that we can give you the most accessible quality accommodation available. We avail the use of professional nurses during the escorted tours of the game parks, boating on Lake Victoria, Birding, cultural tours etc.
