Maintain your independance
Being the safari specialist for people with limited mobility, we comprehend that some of our travel members may face difficulties performing Activities of Daily Living. We consider Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) as routine activities individuals perform every day that allow them to live and function independently.
Some of our guests, particularly those who are disabled or elderly, may have a difficult time completing these tasks independently, and receiving the proper level of assistance helps them to maintain their independence.
Obviously, if any companion you may be travelling with can offer you the needed assistance and/or ADLs, externally arranged additional travel support can be reduced to a minimum or even be left out. However, in some occasions it might be convenient to have someone traveling with you to assist with the basic tasks.

We can offer Assisted Travel Support / ADLs Assistance services in Kenya and Tanzania.
Assisted Travel Support / ADLs Assistance
To make your safari experience a success, a travel member’s ability to perform ADLs is important to determine if and what type of assisted travel support that is required. As a guideline we require all our safari guests to be able to perform individually (or with the help of a travel companion) the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) shown on the image right.
We are glad to be of help in case assistance needs to be arranged externally. Via our carefully selected partner network we can offer different services in terms of Assisted Travel Support and ADLs Assistance. We can connect you with people who can accompany you on safari as your:
- Personal caregiver (non-medical services)
Personalized, compassionate attention providing basic ADLs (eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting and mobility assistance).
- Nurse aid / nurse (medical services, licensed/registered)
Acts as a personal caregiver, only with a home health / medical background providing ‘patient attendance’, basic and/or skilled care (i.e. urinary catheter changes, wound care, injections, et cetera).
- Doctor (medical services, licensed/registered)
An experienced English speaking doctor personally accompanying you throughout the entire safari.
- Medical interpreter / translator (extra support)
Where language may be a challenge, an interpreter/translator can come in handy (to avoid potential language barriers).
Additionally, the following (non-)medical extra support services can be provided for you too:
- Medical advice (back-up medical services)
