At Addo's main camp there are 2 chalets and 2 cottages adapted for use by people with physical impairment.
The chalets have ablutions that offer a choice between bath and roll-in shower with fold-down seat for transfer. However these units have particularly steep access paths where frailer persons may require assistance.
The cottages are new (March 2003) and have no gradient issue and are very comfortable inside. It only has a roll-in shower and no bath. The 2 guest cottages, while without specific adaptations to ablutions (grab-rails and elbow taps), have access ramps and may be an option.
There are access ramps and paths into reception, the shop, the public toilets and down to the viewing site overlooking the floodlit waterhole. However the highlight of the Addo Rest Camp is the PPC Discovery Trail which was built by the parks Honorary Rangers .
It is a trail designed for all people, regardless of physical and sensory impairments, the opportunity to explore the succulent thicket habitat characteristic of Addo. Wheelchair users may park at the trail's start. The trail has a boardwalk surface enabling easy movement for wheelchair users and other mobility impaired people. There is a guide rope for length of the trail, to assist the visually impaired.
There are several information boards over the length of the trail explaining various aspects of the Addo Ecosystem. There are also a few resting points with benches where people can relax and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the thicket vegetation. Two spacious unisex toilets compliment the trail.
There is also an accessible toilet at the reception/shop/restaurant complex and there are ramps to the waterhole lookout and the SASOL Red Bishop bird-hide (also built by the honorary rangers).
There is additional accessible accommodation at Mathyolweni Camp near Colchester . 2 of the cottages are suitable for people with mobility difficulties, with ablutions with roll-in showers and grab rails. Accommodation elsewhere in the park is either at privately run concession sites (some of these may be fully or partially accessible), or in rustic camps where no adaptations have been made.
