Travelling Solo on Safari


If you like to adventure by yourself, or you simply find yourself with itchy feet but don’t have anyone to take a break with you, then don’t be put off travelling to Africa as a solo traveller.

There are several small group safaris that you can join in on, or simply have us design a trip for you where you will be taken care of each step of the way.

You also don’t have to worry about your safety as the itineraries that we design have your safety as the highest priority.
