The best place to research the Accessible Accommodation is on the website www.disabledtravel.co.za.

This website shows only Accessible Accommodation with photographs and measurements of both bathroom and bedroom. To search for Kruger National Park click on either Mpumalanga for the south of the park as far north as Satara, to search of accessible accommodation north of Satara click on Limpopo. Not all Accessible units are shown on the site but very many are shown.

The website is run by a volunteer who receives photographs and measurement from other volunteers. There is no charge for the use of the website and it is approved by SanParks.

Other National Parks are also on the website, again search by Province to find a National Park in the area you are visiting.

Unfortunately SanParks do not have any "standard" for Accessible Accommodation. Each Camp in Kruger have their own interpretation of universal access. This where the website is so valuable.

SanParks designates the "Z" suffix to Accessible Accommodation but this does not ensure that the unit allocated are suitable for wheelchair users. Most "Z" units have a roll-in shower, but many still have a bath which is not suitable for most wheelchair users.

Accessible Units cannot be booked via the SanParks website. So reservations must be made at SanParks central reservations.

Hope this helps to clarify the situation regarding Accessible Accommodation at SanParks.
