UMOJA Travels is a pioneer for ‘Accessible Tourism’ in India. Accessible tourism is the ongoing endeavour to ensure tourist destinations; products and services are accessible to all people, regardless of their physical limitations, disabilities or age.
Many specially-abled people across the globe have great difficulty in getting and finding accommodation. At UMOJA, the team gathers dependable and detailed access and travel-related information, so that people can quickly find hotels that meet their very specific needs and preferences.
