Advocates for Inclusive Tourism
Making the World Accessible for All
Travability was formed in 2007.
Initially Travability was set up as a vehicle to publish accessible travel information via its web site travability.travel. Today, Travability is a part of a worldwide group who’s mission is to create equality in accessibility in the hospitality and travel industries.
Our mission is to be agents of change; to inspire people who have never traveled before to do so, and to inspire others to do more. To encourage all cultures of the world to see disability as an integral part of life, and to provide the motivation and tools to the tourism industry to allow them to create accessible environments that enable inclusion in an economically sustainable way.

Today the new Arthurs Seat Skylift project has a new name - The Arthurs Seat Eagle. The first of the 24 new Gondolas was unveiled today at the brand launch. Eagle CEO, Hans Brugman said today: The new name symbolised the “soaring flight” people would experience on the gondola, and paid homage to the wedge-tailed eagles that could be spotted from the ride.
The guide covers everywhere you’re likely to want to go if you’re visiting Rio for the 2016 Olympic or Paralympic Games – the Maracanã Football Stadium, Copacabana, Barra da Tijuca, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Ipanema, Leblon, Gávea and more – with neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood accessible top tips.

Accessible Tourism is no longer about building ramps and accessible bathrooms. It is about building products and services for a large and rapidly growing market. This is no longer a niche, but rather, a segment that is approaching 25% of the total tourism spend.
From The Tour Desk
This safari encompasses wonderful game-viewing opportunities combined with a special Namibian experience. A couple of nights are spent in Namibia's popular Namib Naukluft Park and in Etosha National Park. One famous for the highest red dunes in the world and one for its unusual white Salt Pans which dominate the centre of the park. Hailed as one of Africa’s largest game parks, being almost the size of Switzerland, this area is Namibia’s premier gameviewing destination, covering thousands of kilometers of dense bush and open plains where an incredible diversity of game roam free, including lion, eland, elephant, giraffe, rhino and ostrich. Here one can enjoy many a relaxing sundowner, whilst observing the large concentrations of game coming down to the floodlit waterholes to quench their thirst.
The Highlights of both Namibia and Botswana are visited on this exciting Safari. Varied scenery and super Game Viewing opportunities in the region is what makes this trip a spectacular combination.We visit the Famous Red Sand Dunes from the Namib Desert dwarfing all in the vicinity, continuing North via Swakopmund on the Skeleton Coast, onto Namibia's popular Etosha National Park.Our safari now takes us Eastward through the Caprivi strip, with our last night in Namibia spent on the banks of the Kavango River in the vicinity ofRundu.Leaving Namibia behind us, we will cross the border into northern Botswana where we will enjoy the relaxing tranquility and beauty of Shakawe, situated within the panhandle of the Okavango Delta. This is a paradise for nature and bird-lovers alike and will provide one with plenty of time for rest and relaxation.
We will stay in 2 very different parts of Botswana – namely, the Central Kalahari and the Okavango Delta. One will immediately see the difference between the water wonder-world of the lush Okavango Delta and the arid desert areas of the Kalahari with its special desert adapted plants and wildlife.During this safari, guests will also enjoy an authentic Bushmen experience
