    Clare Minchin, co-founder of Vumbua Africa, joins Graeme Watson on Kusa Cast to discuss accessible travel in Africa. The podcast also feature input from Keith Johnston, co-founder of Vumbua Africa.

    Clare shares her personal experiences as a social worker and as a traveler with a daughter who required a wheelchair. She highlights the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities or limited mobility when it comes to planning and enjoying a holiday. Clare and Keith have developed Vumbua Africa to address these challenges and provide inclusive travel experiences in Africa.

    They work closely with their clients to understand their specific needs and match them with suitable accommodations, itineraries, and transportation options. Clare emphasises the importance of clear communication and avoiding the term “accessible” in favour of describing the specific features and services available. She also discusses the adaptations made to safari vehicles and the need for continuous improvement in making travel more accessible for all.

    Vumbua Africa is leading the way in making travel accessible for all individuals. Through their focus on inclusivity and their partnerships with accessible accommodations and transportation providers, they are ensuring that everyone can experience the wonders of Africa. While progress has been slow, there is a growing recognition of the need for accessibility in the travel industry. With continued efforts and a commitment to inclusivity, the future of accessible travel looks promising. Let us work together to create a world where everyone can explore and enjoy the beauty of our planet.
