Eco Tourism

At NCPD, we recognize the paramount importance of ensuring equal access to the environment for persons with disabilities. That is why we are thrilled to share the exciting news of accessible destinations, led by Therina Wentzel as part of our Eco Tourism initiative.

This project embodies our commitment to promoting inclusivity and creating opportunities for persons with disabilities to enjoy the beauty of nature and travel.
