Anyone that is travelling alone or wishing to travel alone to Tanzania should feel 100% confident in doing so! A safari in Tanzania is a very inclusive experience at its heart with the majority of camps and lodges being uber friendly and with very like-minded people working and staying these said camps or lodges.
The word safari in Swahili means "to journey", and we feel that there is no better example of a journey than that of the self-discovery experiences travelling by oneself in Tanzania can give you. In most of Tanzania and safari Africa you will be sharing your safari activities with up to 4 others from the camp or lodge you are staying at and will undoubtedly make long lasting friendships.
We would always encourage solo travellers to mix in a variety of experiences, like wildlife safaris of course, but also authentic Masai cultural experiences where possible. We say this because we have found that with all our Tanzania solo traveller guests it has been this combination of wildlife and local cultural deep and meaningful interactions that has really struck home and changed or greatly impacted them.
Almost every safari country in Africa works for solo travellers although there are a few that excel in this particular area. Tanzania’s Southern Circuit of the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park work perfectly with a great mix of ecosystems and safari activities and almost all operate a shard safari activity format in camp.
The northern circuit of Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti can work just as well, though it can get quite pricey because of single supplements on many of the accommodations. It is in Tanzania where the richest cultural experiences are to be had and combine so effortlessly with traditional safari game viewing too putting it right up there for solo travel and we can plan some quite remarkable itineraries along these lines.
So much of travel to Tanzania and Africa and the type of experiences we want or need as individuals, is highly subjective to each individual person. For that reason, we do strongly recommend that at this point you get in touch for a “getting to know you” conversation with one of our team. We are absolute in our belief that this is the only way to achieve a truly Tailormade Africa Tanzania solo traveller experience….. for you.Enquire Now
