Solo Safaris for Women

August 29, 2019

A safari in Africa might just be the perfect idea for your next solo travel trip.

Solo safaris are about experiencing Africa on your own terms and staying true to your traveling style while making lifelong memories. Here are five reasons why safaris for women are a popular choice for solo travellers:

Go on an adventure

A safari epitomises the essence of adventure and with so many ways to experience the wilderness, every time you venture into the bush, you can expect the unexpected. Whether you choose to safari by plane, boat, vehicle or foot (or all four!), make sure to pack a good dose of curiosity.

Meet your spirit animal

What do you answer when asked what animal you would most wish to be? Perhaps you identify with a magnificent bird like the African fish eagle or the brave and sturdy lioness that leads the pride on a hunt. A safari allows you to encounter some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife in their natural habitats.

Be a part of something

A responsible safari is a great way of empowering and volunteering with local communities as well as supporting the crucial efforts of organisations on the front-lines of conservation. Going on safari to Africa can be an incredibly rewarding experience to both you and those you meet along the way.

Take it slow

Doing as much or as little is a part of the freedom of being on safari in Africa’s wild open spaces. Balancing the more exhilarating aspects with quiet moments of mindful introspection and creativity away from the stress of life is an equally enjoyable part of the holiday.

Care for your mind, body and soul
