Accessibility Information

Enabling Independance at Kembu

Accessibility is a very personal thing and everyone’s needs are different. Whether you are a family with a baby, are less mobile than you were, or require a cottage suitable for a wheelchair, our aim is to help you make the right choice and identify the cottage with features that suit your needs. Being a rural setting we have not got paved walkways connecting our facilities but several of the cottages as well as the restaurant have access ramps. We aim to provide a relaxing and enjoyable holiday for all and so strive to ensure our accessible cottages have features to help make your holiday one to treasure, forever.

A stay in one of our homely cottages with increased accessibility means you can maintain your independence and enjoy your holiday without worrying about getting around inside the cottage.

Our booking team will be happy to help put you in contact with a provider who will strive to meet your exact needs. If you require help with specialised transport or care while on safari we are here to help. Transport or a carer must be booked in advance of your stay as care and specialized help are not available on site.
