South Africa Focuses on Accessible Tourism During Visit of Disability Expert Dr. Scott Rains | ENAT
www.accessibletourism.org, 19 Feb 2015 [cached]
South African tourism authorities are knuckling down to the issue of accessible tourism during a month-long visit of leading US disability expert Scott Rains. Dr Rains, a wheelchair-user for 37 years and an advocate for the rights of disabled travellers, will be meeting South Africa's largest disability organisations and tourism bodies during his month-long visit to the country. The aim of his trip is to evaluate the quality of the South African tourism product for disabled and older travellers - and ultimately to build awareness of the importance of good access to the country's tourism industry as a whole.
The Kwazulu-Natal Tourism Authority are currently hosting Dr. Rains on a ten-day tour of the region organised by disability tour operator Access2Africa Safaris. As well as visiting Durban's Ushakamarine World and the Zulu village of Dumazulu near Hluhluwe, he will be viewing South Africa's Big Five at the Umfolozi/Hluhluwe and Bonamanzi game reserves. The group will spend several nights at Makaranga Lodge, a luxury hotel near the Valley of a Thousand Hills that has been specially designed for wheelchair users.
Meetings with the head of the QuadPara Association of South Africa and numerous tourism stakeholders will follow, in which Dr. Rains will give feedback and advice on how to improve both facilities and information for disabled travellers to the area.
...
Dr. Rains will be visiting Cape Town and the Gauteng province around Johannesburg in February, as well as covering the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge in George on 14 February.
Dr. Rains was made a Lifetime Honorary Member of ENAT in 2008 for his continuing contribution to the understanding and promotion of accessible tourism worldwide.

As one of her nurses lugged a 25-pound battery on board, she was stopped and told that the pilot needed to inspect it. Salberg, who was already in her seat, said she couldn't tell the flight crew she already had airline approval because she didn't have the device she needs to speak. Crew members were shown the compliance letter and told Salberg had flown previously, but those reassurances were brushed off. Instead of a direct flight, which Salberg had paid extra for, her group was put on a flight to Atlanta, delaying their arrival in Minneapolis by about five hours. The delay meant Salberg couldn't drink anything because she isn't able to use a public restroom... Read:
