Everything You Need to Know About Solo Safaris
When talking about solo travel, most people don't immediately think of a solo safari. But in talking to some of our coworkers about their own experiences, we wondered: Are safaris kind of the perfect trip to take alone? Consider this: Your days are scheduled out with game drives in the morning and evening, and time to relax, read, and chat with your campmates during the hottest part of the day. You're in a group, whether you're gorilla-trekking in Rwanda watching for elephants in the Serengeti, so you can choose when to be social—and when to hang out in your villa's plunge pool alone.But the trip takes a lot of planning, so we called in our team of experts, who've all taken solo safaris, including Traveler's features director Alex Postman, travel specialist and founder of Roar Africa Deborah Calmeyer, and contributor Mary Holland.
