The EPIC – MundoRado 8 year collaboration

By October 13, 2016No Comments

2016 saw our 8 year anniversary working with MundoRado Reizen, who, like us, are also passionate about enabling travel for people with disabilities. We started our collaboration back in Aug 2008 and this September we welcomed their 8th private group in as many years with fourteen people, ready to be amazed by our incredible South African wildlife, culture and scenery!

That is not to say they’re all new to South Africa: Hillie, the tour guide appointed by MundoRado, has been with us once before, but this time she was assisted by Jenny (part of MundoRado’s office Information and Reservations team), which was great to add a face to all the e-mail conversations we had and we are sure that this experience was a welcome change from office life too!

As per usual, Epic took excellent care of our travellers – not even a hand injury by Corrie, which she sustained on her flight over to South Africa, could stop her from exploring, as we took her to see an excellent doctor nearby. Soon she had re-joined everyone else on their trip to the iconic Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela famously spent much of his twenty-seven years as a prisoner.

Up in the Kruger, the group enjoyed seeing Ntombi the cheetah at the Bush Camp and her two brothers (on a game walk) who, like most male cheetahs, are seemingly inseparable!
We were lucky again and saw all of the big 5 on this tour as well as many of the less famous animals. Jessica the famous hippo was again very happy to receive all the attention from everybody and very patiently posed for all the photos.

It was great meeting you all:
