African Experiences of a Lifetime for the Solo Traveler

As traveling alone becomes increasingly popular, Africa is a destination ripe for discovery with a range of camps intended to put single travelers in touch with nature, knowledgeable guides, and ultimately each other. Visitors can savor the solitary beauty of the African wild and form lifelong bonds with local communities on personalized journeys of self-discovery.

For foodies seeking to travel solo, the Africa Adventure Company recommends Tanzania’s Gibbs Farm to study organic farming techniques. Coffee enthusiasts in search of a flavorful adventure can tour this historic coffee plantation, a charming slice of Old Africa and a chance to bond
with fellow gourmands. Kenya is home to Sala’s Camp, where explorers will be at the heart of the famed annual Great Migration. One will not be truly alone when surrounded by thousands of migrating wildebeest and their predators, the greatest phenomenon in the animal kingdom. Communal tables are a special feature of this camp, providing single travelers an opportunity to bond with like-minded wanderers. The area is home to the Maasai people, a warm and welcoming community for visitors traveling alone. Solo travelers seeking to be as far from others as possible, will find Namibia’s Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, a remote paradise. Located on the famed Skeleton Coast, the camp is accessible only by light aircraft. The hauntingly isolated beauty of countless abandoned shipwrecks buried under desert sands will provide an ethereal experience for those seeking silence and self-reflection.

The Africa Adventure Company’s selection of camps well-suited for solo travelers includes Zimbabwe’s Camp Amalinda with volunteer opportunities at Mother Africa organization, Botswana’s Mashatu Tented Camp, and the Odzala Wilderness Camps in the remote Republic of Congo, ideal for gorilla trekking solo travelers. The trips resonate with travelers seeking active adventure and up close wildlife experiences, without compromising individual interests, comfort, or the chance to have an authentic African trip of a lifetime.
