Anyone that is travelling alone or wishing to travel alone to Botswana should feel 100% confident in doing so!
A safari in Botswana 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 Botswana can give you. In most of Botswana and safari Africa you will be sharing your safari activities with up to five 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 cultural experiences where possible. We say this because we have found that with all our Botswana 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. Botswana is the real king of solo travel in Africa. Botswana has a number of options of which Mashatu Game Reserve is right up there and we can plan some quite remarkable itineraries along those lines. Find out more info on Botswana safaris here.
So much of travel to Botswana 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 with one of our team. We are absolute in our belief that this is the only way to achieve a truly Tailormade Africa Botswana solo traveller experience ... for you.
Solo Travelling Botswana FAQs
Why should I consider going on a solo traveller safari to Botswana?
Solo travelling is not for everyone, but some of the greatest reasons for solo travelling is it helps you get out of your comfort zone, building your confidence and it helps you see the world in a unique way, especially Africa. Botswana is a great country to solo travel in as it has a strong and stable economy so this makes it safe and well suited. There is also a great focus on conservation and natural resources in Botswana and you will feel a sense of rejuvenation, freedom from distractions and the craziness of 'normal' daily life stressors. Besides you may just bump into some other like-minded individuals in Botswana who share the same passion for solo travel and Africa.
Is Botswana a good destination to go for a solo trip as a woman?
Indeed it is! As previously mentioned Botswana has a strong and stable economy which means there is no political uncertainty and the country is very focused on tourists as this boosts the countries ability to remain focused on conservation and its superior safari industry. As a solo travelling woman you will feel safe and extremely well looked after as you take in all that Botswana has to offer.
