Accessibility informationGeneral accessibility further information:
From epic-enabled.com: The concept of EPIC ENABLED was born in 2001 (We'd run as Epic Expeditions since 1992 and had seen very few 'enabled' travellers enjoying Southern African as overlanders). As Epic Enabled, we serve the many 'enabled' people who are willing and able to push the boundaries of their disabilities and wish to experience the same sense of adventure and thrill which 'overlanding' has to offer.
We have a variety of vehicles available, depending on the group size. Our accessible vehicles are especially adapted by qualified mechanical engineers for wheelchair (disabled) passengers to travel in total safety and comfort. The wheelchairs are secured by means of factory built, quick release tie-downs to ensure safety while the vehicle is in motion. These tie-downs are bolted and welded to the framework of the vehicle body enhancing the all-round safety aspects. Each group is different as each individual traveller has different request and needs. We like to keep the liberty of using the best suitable vehicle according to passengers booked on the individual tours.
All quality camping equipment is provided and we prepare our own meals (on the Kruger safari). In addition we can also offer a bath swivel seat, shower/commode wheelchair, emergency wheelchair and movable handlebars.Please mention when booking if you would like to make use of any of these aids.We can hire the following equipment/aids for your individual needs:
