L'essentiel de l'Afrique du Sud vous emmène découvrir les sites incontournables de la nation arc-en-ciel. Début du circuit dans la ville cosmopolite du Cap depuis laquelle vous visitez la magnifique région située à la pointe du continent africain. Partez au mythique Cap de Bonne Espérance, empruntez la route panoramique de la péninsule où vous apercevez une colonie de manchots africains, montez au sommet de la Montagne de la Table et profitez d'une vue panoramique sur la magnifique baie du Cap, dégustez de bons vins dans les domaines autour de Stellenbosch et Franschhoek... Après un court vol entre le Cap et Durban, vous quittez la côte Atlantique pour rejoindre l'Océan Indien, 1500 km plus au nord. Vous êtes sur le territoire de l'ethnie zoulou ! Parcourez les deux grands parcs nationaux animaliers du Kwazulu Natal: Isimangaliso et Hluhluwe-Imfolozi. Après une baignade dans les eaux chaudes de l'Océan Indien à Cap Vidal, découvrez les hippopotames et crocodiles sur l'estuaire de St Lucia. Entrez au Swaziland, minuscule royaume enclavé entre l'Afrique du Sud et le Mozambique, et rencontrez les Swazis, peuple très accueillant qui anime les marchés et centres artisanaux de la vallée d'Ezulwini. Traversez l'un des plus grands parcs animaliers du continent, le Parc Kruger, et faites un safari pour observer la faune dans ce gigantesque sanctuaire de vie sauvage à l'est du pays. Passez deux nuits au cœur du parc, bercés par les sons de la brousse... Et longez la route panoramique qui surplombe le canyon de la Blyde River avant de mettre le cap vers Johannesburg pour votre vol retour. Les incontournables de l'Afrique du Sud en 14 jours !

Epic Enabled offers family friendly & wheelchair accessible safari holidays to the able & disabled traveller and friends in the Kruger National Park, Garden Route and day tours in Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa. Everybody is welcome, individuals, friends, families & groups. Touch a wild cheetah, experience the wild animals up close, hear the animal calls, taste traditional food, see the famous African sunsets, meet other travellers, have fun & lots more...
Epic Expeditions has been running since 1992 as an overland company. We have seen very few ‘enabled’ travellers enjoying the wide range of pleasures as an ‘overlander’. Being aware that there are many ‘enabled’ people who are able and wish to experience the same sense of adventure and thrill which ‘overlanding’ has to offer, the concept of Epic Enabled was born (2001).
Epic Enabled is based in Cape Town and has a beautifully designed fully accessible Guest House in Noordhoek, established in 2010. The Epic Guest House provides the perfect getaway opportunity for a holiday in Cape Town either before, after or independently of our Kruger Safaris.
We specialise in accessible safari & tours for able & disabled travellers alike. Everybody is welcome and you are from all walks of life, nationalities, individuals, families, friends and groups. If you are an independent traveller with a disability, mentally sound and medically fit, come and join this amazing trip. On our ‘once of a lifetime’ tours you experience first hand the amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, friendly local cultures, traditional specialties, interesting sounds and picturesque sunsets.
Who leads the tour?
Alfie, the owner/driver/guide, leads all tours by himself and for larger groups he has an assistant.
He is trained, motivated and experienced in leadership and group dynamics and combines an extensive knowledge of local conditions, wildlife, immigration, vehicles and mechanical expertise along with passion of overland safari travel to ensure a successful journey. Carers or qualified medical assistants can be organised on request.
What type of accommodation is provided?
A range of fully equipped accommodation is used including bungalows and cottages in main and private camps. The bungalows have accessible en-suite bathrooms with roll-in showers and the cottages in private reserves have their own ablutions with a shower or bath. All accommodations have solid off-the-ground beds.
Arrival day before safari start:
You should arrive at least 1 day prior to the safari start as we leave early that day. We can arrange airport transfer & hotel at little extra cost.
What culinary delights can I expect?
Epic Enabled provides a range of wholesome meals a day (please refer to individual itineraries) – which include stews, pastas, barbeques, traditional African dishes like Potjie served in a boma, picnics etc. Vegetarians and those with special dietary requirements will always have different meals to choose from.
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 whilst the vehicle is in motion. These tie-downs are bolted and secured the framework of the vehicle body enhancing the all-round safety aspects.
Large groups: 8 – 14 Passengers:
Our newest addition is the Iveco bus 50C15V18 with hydraulic passenger lift. The passenger compartment has been purposely built, with factory-constructed seats with seat belts with the middle row removed for the wheelchairs users. We can accommodate 4 - 6 wheelchair passengers (some will have to transfer into standard vehicle seats) and additional 8 – 10 seated passengers (non-wheelchair).
Medium groups: 4 – 8 passengers:
We use a Mercedes Benz Sprinter bus 518 with hydraulic passenger lift. This Sprinter bus can take up to 4 wheelchair passengers (standard size wheelchairs) seated in their wheelchairs, secured with tie-downs to the floor, and an additional 8 seated passengers (non-wheelchair).
Please note electric wheelchairs are very welcome but will limit the other wheelchair availability as they are generally larger and need more space. Please advise us when you are booking
What insurance do you need?
It is compulsory for all travellers to have their own valid medical and travel insurance to cover overland travel including repatriation. Epic Enabled operates a Public and Passenger liability insurance according to International & European standards.
What are the health risks?
Some of our safaris & tours take us through the Kruger National Park, which is in the malaria area and we therefore highly recommend for our clients to take malaria prophylaxis. This is the biggest risk on tour; please consult your local Travel Clinic for up-to-date details on vaccinations.
