Solo Travel FAQs

Who travels solo?

Solo travel is an increasingly popular option for many individuals today. While this kind of travel may have been traditionally associated with daring adventurers, it now spans a wide range of personalities. Solo travelers are often self-confident, but their personalities can vary from the most introverted individuals who seek to be self-reliant and enjoy their own company, to the most extroverted ones eager to make new acquaintances everywhere they go. The diversity of solo travelers is vast, ranging from these two extremes and everything in between.

Is it safe traveling solo in Africa?

There are no risks specific to solo travel in Africa, especially with pre-planned itineraries booked through an operator, but travelers should always adhere to the usual common-sense precautions such as not walking alone at night in cities, and avoiding deserted areas. Booking through a travel company will also make you less vulnerable to scam artists, and will inform you ahead of time of potential health risks, like malaria, and how to avoid them.

What is a single supplement?

Our standard room rates are based on a double occupancy rate, split evenly for two travelers. However, we do offer a single supplement charge for any solo travelers who wish to book a room. This supplementary charge ensures that the full cost of the room is covered by the single traveler. Additionally, it is worth noting that certain activities and transfers may also be charged at a minimum rate for two people, which can contribute to an increase in expenses when traveling alone. We strive to provide accurate and transparent pricing for all our guests, and are happy to answer any questions or concerns regarding rates and fees.
