Who we are

CapeAble & Accessible was founded following a friendship between three young women who have spent their summer youths venturing around the Cape. Our friendship began over 5 years ago and ever since we have been seeking out local accessible adventure. We focus on what we are able to do rather than the constraints of disability.
