Choose a solo Africa vacation if you want an adventure tailored to your individual interests and travel preferences in settings of breathtaking scenic beauty under sunny skies. Be active or rest and recharge in Africa’s top solo travel destinations. Outside of high season you’ll find plenty of accommodation options not subject to single supplements, and we’ve handpicked a selection of scheduled tours that meet our exacting standards and allow single travellers to access the benefits of group package rates in the company of like-minded adventurers.
Active solo travellers can tick off bucket list experiences like gorilla trekking or summiting Kilimanjaro, witnessing the zebra migration in the Kalahari or diving the world’s top sites off Africa’s tropical coastline. Cycle, hike, kayak and horse ride - there are so many opportunities to take advantage of the great outdoors in Africa from balmy beach days to action-packed expeditions.
If you’re looking to find your centre and reconnect with yourself, there are few destinations on earth that offer the kind of breathing space Africa does. Choose the wide open plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara, or the endless blue skies of the Namib Desert and the Makgadikgadi Pans. Let the mighty Victoria Falls take your breath away or fall asleep to the lullaby of reed frogs in the Okavango Delta.
Whatever you choose to see and do on your safari, one thing is certain: Africa will not leave you unchanged. Discover the sound of your own heart in these ancient landscapes among Africa’s wild creatures. Take a look at our sample solo tours and safaris to see how different attractions work together and get an idea of what these combinations cost.
