About South Africa tours for the disabled:
One of my operators uses a recent model Mercedes Benz 1617 truck, especially adapted by qualified mechanical engineers for Wheelchair (disabled) passengers to travel in total safety and comfort.
There is a hydraulic passenger lift with remote control, powered by 24V batteries (220V mains) plus a hand pump as a back up system. The passenger compartment has been purpose built, with elevated factory-constructed seats with seat belts.
The facility of removable seats also gives you space and maneuverability inside the passenger compartment to enhance your game viewing and the important all-round views.
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 welded to the framework of the truck body enhancing the all-round safety aspects.
Communication is via an open cab / passenger compartment integrated system between the driver and clients.A Mercedes Benz sprinter bus or the like is used for all airport and hotel transfers and smaller tours etc.
Our Handicapped South Africa Safaris and or South Africa Tours are custom designed to meet your needs.
