Want to go on an African safari, but travelling alone? Joining a small group safari is one of the best ways to see Africa’s wildlife and wilderness areas, while having all the logistics of going on safari taken care of.
Scheduled small group safaris allow you to join a small group of other like-minded travellers, and journey into some of the most beautiful wilderness destinations in Southern Africa. You’ll travel with a guide, who will take care of the day-to-day logistics of the safari. You’ll be able to choose accommodation options to suit your budget, from luxury fly-in safaris, to participation adventure camping safaris.
Another benefit of a small group safari is that they are more cost effective than solo African vacations – the cost of the safari is shared among the group, making this a more affordable safari option.
Active and adventurous solo travellers can tick off bucket list experiences like gorilla trekking, witnessing the zebra migration in the Kalahari, climbing giant dunes in Namibia, or going on foot in Big Five country on a walking safari in Zambia. Africa offers a huge number of activities in stunning wilderness areas for intrepid travellers and outdoor enthusiasts.
If you’re looking to find peace and quiet, there are few destinations on earth that offer the kind of breathing space Africa does. Choose the endless blue skies of the Namib Desert and the Makgadikgadi Pans, let the mighty Victoria Falls take your breath away, or fall asleep as you drift along the reed-lined channels of the Okavango Delta on a mokoro.
How to get there: See the magnificent zebra migration in the Kalahari, or see the highlights of South Africa, from the Garden Route and Cape Town, to the world renowned Kruger National Park. Or see more of our suggested solo traveller safari itineraries here.
