5 Solo Safaris For Single Travelers

July 14, 2017 East Africa Bush Tails

While any trip can became a solo journey with a “singles supplement,” the following safaris are especially good fits for those who want to see amazing Africa on their own, in the comfort of a small group with 5 to 9 other people.

African Adventure explorations aren’t limited to couples and groups; single travelers can join in the safari excitement and have an equally astounding trip, plus the luxury of being in remote areas with incredible wildlife, while having the camaraderie of dinner and safari companions on one of our group adventures.

  1. Group Primate and Plains Safari to Uganda and Rwanda

“This primate tour has been on my bucket list the longest, and was probably the most expensive trip I’ve taken – and it was totally worth it!!!” says J Craig. “I think we really lucked out on especially our 2 gorilla treks. I’m sure it helped that Male passed on our wishes to visit the closest group, with the easiest trek expected, but considering they continually move, it was fortuitous that they didn’t stray too far. In addition, both groups ended up in nice open areas that made viewing very easy, relaxed & incredibly close for photos. Even the morning rain in Rwanda didn’t spoil things &made their hair fluffy. Bwindi was definitely more difficult trekking, but not the super challenging, long struggle it could have been, for which we were very grateful. I certainly wanted you to know how much I enjoyed these experiences.”

This group adventure encompasses the thrill of gorilla treks and wildlife safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Volcanoes National Park, chimp trekking in Kibale Forest, and game viewing in Uganda the “The Pearl of Africa—all areas where the pristine natural areas and incredible wildlife encounters are some of the best in Africa.

  1. Group Great Wilderness Safari to Botswana

This is a flying safari offering a great combination of 3 classic level permanent tented camps.  The group departure is limited to 8 people and you are led by superb guides including Francis Kudumo.  You begin with a night in Victoria Falls. Alison Nolting was recently in the Okavango Delta on safari with Francis and comments” it is so enthralling being in the Linyanti with only your own group and having the whole area to ourselves as we watched a herd of elephant drinking at the river’s edge”.

  1. Tanzania Group Explorer Safari
