Tourism Research for People with Disabilities

Unread postby lizef » Thu Jul 17, 2014 3:38 pm

South African National Parks often partners with universities and other research institutions to help us investigate the changing trends, habits and wishes of our tourism clientele. This latest survey is aimed specifically at park visitors with disabilities, particularly people with physical, visual and hearing impairments.

It does not only focus on national parks, but on all nature based venues that people travel to for relaxation or inspiration. If you are a person with a disability please help the researcher by completing this research questionnaire, or alternatively share the link with family or friends you may know with disabilities. The larger the sample the more meaningful research will be.

I have completed and submitted the form, but I am curious.....

The form is an American national parks survey. What relevance
does it have to South African National Parks infrastructure?

I've had a quick look at the form and although it is not SANParks specific, I didn't get the idea it was American.

Saraf, if you read it again you will notice things like the currency in Dollars, and the phraseology utilised. It just screams American! No big deal really, just found it strange, and somewhat inappropriate. The questionnaire focuses on a great deal of detail. We should really be focusing on getting the basics right.
