I was tired when we got to Londolozi. Jet lag! If you can get a night's rest at the airport hotel in Johannesburg, you will start off your safari in better shape. I did participate in all activities. How could I miss anything?
I have been asked about handicap accessibility. Frankly, it is better in South Africa than in many places in the United States and Canada.
All paths in Londolozi camps are smooth and without steps even if they are steep. It would be possible for someone using a wheel chair to get around with help for pushing on the steep places. Our bathroom was plenty large as were the public toilets in the boma.
The major obstacle is getting up and on to the Land Rover. We rode on a fairly high seat which required an inelegant scramble for me to achieve. A person with limited mobility could ride on the front seat with the Ranger. However that person would require help getting into the King Air and might need to be driven to Londolozi. (about 40 minutes) Something done in any case when the weather is poor.
The game drives last 3 1/2 to 4 hours. You have 2 game drives per day. Once away from camp there are no toilet facilities. The Ranger and Tracker can locate a safe place for an emergency toilet visit. They would stand guard nearby with a loaded gun! Obviously more difficult for women. If you require a lot of toilet visits per day, you may want to see if your doctor can give you some medicine to get you through your safari experience. We managed by cutting down on liquids prior to drives.
The Land Rover Defender goes where the game goes. Your Ranger and Tracker decide and off you go. It can get darn rough! Likely to be avoided if you have back problems. Often I was holding on with 2 hands. Up hill and down, through rivers, through and over trees, sometimes quickly if there are radio reports of a good sighting. Bang, crash, crunch!
Well worth doing!
