At Desert & Delta Safaris, we have realised that many of our guests are at a disadvantage in our camps and lodges through having some form of disability. We are a proud company and we regard ourselves more as a family than just a group of colleagues, which brought about our recent initiatives to cater to all our guests with the same inclusiveness, enthusiasm and accessibility.
To this end we have adopted the term Inclusive Tourism, which means guests with or without disabilities can enjoy our facilities and, most importantly, have access to the activities we have on offer without being disadvantaged in any way.
This is a very big step for us, both financially as well as a practical, learning exercise, and we admit it will take time to perfect, but we are committed and have already taken some very big steps in the right direction.
For now the types of guests with disabilities we can cater to include those with mobility impairments, hearing impairments and visual impairments. We intend to update you in the not too distant future about more of our ambitious plans, which also involve local Batswana with disabilities and the possibility of catering to guests requiring kidney dialysis.
We realise that disability can be a part of anyone’s life, and that this is not by choice, so from a tourism perspective we will endeavour to continually improve our products and make the experiences we offer accessible to all our guests.
Do not think that your safari dreams are no longer possible due to your physical ability. We look forward to receiving your requests and more than that, to getting you out into the wilds of Botswana!
