Epic Enabled was founded by Alfie Smith in 1992, offering Overland tours throughout Southern Africa.
We realised there are a lot of obstacles for differently able travellers and started with our accessible safaris in 2001 in South Africa. In 2010 we opened our fully accessible Epic Guest House in Cape Town.

To say we enjoyed our safari is an understatement, it was fantastic. We saw over 30 different animals inc. big 5. The disabled facilities for joyce who is a full time wheelchair user were excellent. We also visited sabine and alfies B & B which again offers 1st class facilities for disabled travellers visiting the cape area. Alfie, a big hug and thanks for a really memorable holiday.

Highlights: Everything, animals, staff, fantastic experience, great bunch of travellers! Whatever your disability - you can do everything on this holiday beyond your wildest dreams. If you think you can’t do it, think again, and if you aren’t disabled - it is an inspirational holiday!

We would like to thank you for making it possible for us to do this great trip...The help and care from you was just great. You picked the right places to stay and the best spots to go to. We hope to be able to return to South Africa again soon

what a great time we had last month, thank you Alfie for a wonderful experience...It was obvious that Alfie had expended considerable time and effort into developing a truly disabled friendly tour...Alfie's constant attention to detail, and seemingly inexhaustible energy that made the trip even more special...Once again thank you for a truly 'Enabled' holiday
I enjoyed every single minute of the holiday, it was an experience of a lifetime and one I'll never forget. I still can't believe that I was less than a metre away from a Lion or that I fed a Hippo which is something I never thought i'd do. I'd like to thank you all for making me feel so welcome and if you are ever in England feel free to look me up. But I think I'll see you back in Africa first.

What an absolutely wonderful trip we had, so well organised and everything available for the disabled traveller, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever be able to experience a real life safari, to be able to touch and stroke wild animals was a joy, especially holding the three week old lion cub. I must pay tribute to Alfie's skills as a driver, chef and very knowledgeable guide and to the care he took to make life so easy for us. We enjoyed every minute of it and given the chance I would certainly go again.

Highlights: Spending time with such lovely people and seeing so much amazing wildlife We have been on some wonderful holidays but nothing compares to this. The whole system worked perfectly, from the minute we were met a the airport, the welcome, the accommodation, the wildlife we saw, the places we visited and the wonderful people we met and hopefully will stay in touch with long after the holiday ends. The most amazing encounters with king cheetah, caracal and lion at such close range will stay with us for ever. Alfie was so organized & efficient and his food was great.
Thank you very much for a very exciting 10 days experience. We had a great time there.

Laurence and I had a great time, we didn't really know what to expect but I would have absolutely no hesitation in booking another Epic tour in the future. Alfie is extremely knowledgeable and informative, in fact the game drives conducted by him were the best and the ones where we saw the greatest number of animals. He is also good at repairing vehicles, which is definitely an advantage when you are in the middle of nowhere, not to mention that he can put together a tasty meal for a group in no time. I haven't actually seen him doing the washing up, though. Thank you Charles! All in all I'd say we had good fun, it's been a great experience and the truck and the accommodation were clean and comfortable.

We had a wonderful time in the Kruger national park and Tshukudu game reserve with Alfie... But, most important of all, Alfie had a sharp eye for possible risks and unobtrusively took simple steps to keep us safe.
Before my trip to South Africa I was a little anxious about that it might be too hard for me but I was completely wrong about that. I have always been interested in nature, environmental problems and exotic species and one of my dreams was going on safari. After one week in Kruger park, Blyde river canyon I have both fulfilled my dreams, learnt a lot of South Africa, endangered species and have had a really god time together with Alfie, Josh and my travel friend Lars. My intention is to return as soon as possible.
