The trend for solo travel is on the up - from sabbaticals, to simply indulging in your own time - Africa delivers in spades.
For those who enjoy being in a party of like-minded people, Africa excels in a range of interesting and varied group trips. From horse riding, gorilla trekking and photographic safari workshops, to climbing Kilimanjaro, canoeing down the Zambezi and enjoying a
dhow sailing safari along the east African coast. You may prefer a more individually tailored itinerary in small intimate lodges where you will come into contact with different characters in each location, and feel very much part of the scene.
Certain safaris will waiver this or if you book early, often the first few bookings are exempt.
Peace of mind
From the moment you arrive, to the time that you leave, you will be looked after at all times.
Regular departures throughout the year, maximum 8 - 12 people, trips tend to last 7 - 10 days.
Don't have to eat alone
Many of the lodges will offer communal dining, turning each night into a friendly dinner party.
