With more than 13 million disabled people in the UK holding a spending power of £250 billion a year, the “purple pound” is big business.

This is TTG’s round up of three tours adapted for wheelchair users.

Rahisi Tours

Kenya accessible safari specialist Rahisi Tours’ new three-day Mount Kenya experience sees clients journey from Nairobi to the Old Moses Mountain Camp, before visiting the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy and Animal Orphanage.


“Mount Kenya offers the chance for wheelchair users to meet the bongo antelope and learn about the active breeding programme at the Mount Kenya Animal Orphanage,” says Rahisi Tours’ director Stephanie Scawen.


“There’s also a track to see the incredible views around the mountain. All our tours bar one are suitable for wheelchair users, and we assist the physically disabled with our carers if needed,” says Scawen.


The Mount Kenya tour is priced at £1,015pp with transport from Nairobi, accommodation at the Penguin House hotel in Nanyuki and the services of a guide included.
