Tanzania Disabled Needs

Tanzania can be a tricky country for disabled people. In the airports and major hotels signs mark disabled access for public toilets and priority seating but few places are wheelchair accessible. Most hotels and resorts have disabled facilities include bathrooms with wheel-in showers, good access throughout the hotel and hotel facilities. Transportation for people with disabilities should be arranged prior with the hotel or tour guide.

Note that often in Tanzania bathrooms in bars and restaurants can be inaccessible for those with mobility problems as many are located down or up a flight of stairs. Some safaris may also not be suitable. Accessible Journeys (www.disabilitytravel.com) can help organize safaris in Tanzania.
