Solo travel in Africa has moved on from the days of having to pay single supplements and getting a table for one in the corner. Travel is so often a personal quest and, given the frenetic pace and constant engagement of modern life, it’s no surprise to witness the rise in solo travel. People from all around the world are taking time out from their work and home environments to kick back and really relax or to discover their dream destinations by themselves.
Communal dining, shared activities and experiences plus a common camaraderie are features of the accommodation and tours we select for our discerning solo travellers to Africa. You’ll enjoy the social dynamic of a group of like-minded people – no dinners-for-one and no permanent place at the back of the safari van on our group holidays.
Our Africa solo travel safaris combine off-the-beaten track destinations with unforgettable activities: Track highly endangered mountain gorillas and Chimpanzees in the jungles of Uganda and Rwanda, Raft the mighty grade 5 white rapids of The Nile- the longest River in the World, fly to tucked-away lodges in Tanzania’s most remote reserves; get close to the wildebeest migration in a mobile tented camp; climb Mount Kilimanjaro or fly a hot air balloon whilst viewing Kenya’s magnificent plains & wild game; experience the exhilaration of Big 5 country on a walking safari in Zambia’s South Luangwa;.
If you prefer an adventure solo holiday filled with tropical sunshine and soft white sand, we can recommend remote Indian Ocean islands in Zanzibarnorthern Mozambique or the outer islands of the Seychelles where it’s more likely that you’ll share the beach with wildlife rather than people. Or how about a beach holiday with a difference in land-locked Malawi: the welcoming beaches of dazzling Lake Malawi are the perfect place to forget about city stress.
