    Hello

    Just curious about how travelers can go from one city to another as a wheelchair user in South Africa. Are the trains wheelchair accessible?

    Thanks!

    Hi! I’m doing some research into all options and will revert shortly.
    Those that come to mind off the top of my head:

    • Air travel between cities – flights between major cities would be accessible.
    • Car Hire – with hand controls if you are able to drive, or a wheelchair accessible vehicle if a traveller doesn’t drive with a hand-control vehicle but has a companion to do the driving.
    • Tour operators – scheduled tours
    • Luxury Trains. They have set routes, dates and itineraries, so not for general city-to-city travel.

    For more independent travel options, I’m doing some research, have started making contact and will revert soonest with an updated post if there are more options available.
