Disability Tourism and travel in Africa.

Disability Tourism and travel in Africa.

Travel and tourism is a social right which concerns every human being . However, it is estimated that over 500 million disabled people in the world do not take holidays. For those with some form of disability, many of the existing tourism offers are not easily accessible.

Demand for accessible tourism offers is growing, and the tourism industry is starting to recognize that tourists with disabilities form an important consumer group.
