Solo Travel Tours Through the African Wilderness and Cosmopolitan Cities of Africa with Individual Traveller
With lots of amazing sights and attractions, as well as a friendly, welcoming environment and a laid back way of life, Africa is quickly emerging as one of the best places to travel alone. It’s a continent of two halves, boasting lively, modern cities such as Johannesburg and Cape Town, interspersed with stunning natural beauty found within the national parks and along the riverbanks. It really is the best of both worlds, offering something for every solo traveller. So why not choose an independent travel group which provides a unique opportunity for you to soak up all the sights, sounds and smells of Africa – Individual Traveller
Singles holidays to Africa from the Individual Traveller
Singles holidays in Africa offer travellers an incredible opportunity to get up close and personal with animals in their natural habitat; a completely different experience to seeing the same animals caged in a zoo. As well as giraffes, hippopotamuses, and other amazing creatures, Africa is also the only continent in the world where you can see all of the Big 5 animals – the African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and the rhinoceros – making this a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Travelling solo to Africa allows you to explore at your own pace, and ensures you never miss out on what you want to do.
The bustling cities of South Africa offer the solo traveller and exhilarating experience
Creating a sharp contrast to Africas natural beauty spots are the busy, bustling cities of South Africa. Travel for singles has never been so exciting; Individual Traveller ensures you have plenty of time to explore the shops, the architecture, the art, and the culture of Johannesburg and Cape Town and learn more about life in South Africas most cosmopolitan cities. From museums and galleries to colourful markets and vibrant bazaars, forget New York – these are the cities that never sleep! Individual Traveller is proud to offer 2 great solo travel tours in Africa, exploring the sights of Zimbabwe and South Africa.
A South African Cultural Extravaganza for the Solo Traveller
Holidays for singles to South Africa are incredibly diverse, and our solo travel tours include a fascinating mix of city life and the region’s unpredictable, rugged nature. While guidebooks may focus on Johannesburg and Cape Town’s nightlife and shopping opportunities, Individual Traveller shows you more, and takes you on a journey following the wildlife and flowing rivers right the way down to the coast. South Africa is home to the only park on the planet where you can not only see the Big 5, but also the Big 7, including the Cheetah and African Wild Dog – one of the nation’s most endangered species. You can also visit the Gorah Elephant Camp, where you can watch these majestic creatures at the watering hole.
Discover the rich history of South Africa with our single traveller tours
Single travel to South Africa offers the perfect opportunity to discover more about the rich and vibrant history of the African nation, and learn about how this history has shaped the country and played a role in making it the stunning destination that it is today. Perhaps take a train to the Garden Route’s Knysna Lagoon and learn about the local gold rush, or take an oyster-tasting boat cruise and discover the incredible story of the Knysna Oyster. And of course no solo travel tour to South Africa would be complete without a chance to ride on the historic Table Mountain cableway, which was opened in 1929 and opened up access to this iconic mountain to South Africa’s general public.
The major cities offer our solo travellers an in-depth view of culture, cuisine and art
For solo travellers who love the adrenaline and excitement of big city life, you’ll feel right at home in South Africa. Singles travel to South Africa with an independent travel group is a chance to experience art, culture, and cuisine, South African style! Johannesburg, which is well known for being a natural paradise, also happens to be one of Africa’s most busy, bustling, and colourful cities, while the vineyards of Stellenbosch are a great place to meet up with other solo travellers in South Africa, and make new friends over a glass of local South African wine. And lets not forget Cape Town, considered to be one of the most multicultural cities in the world, and also one of the best places to travel alone in Africa.
Travelling Alone to Explore the Wildlife Highlights of Zimbabwe
What comes to mind when you think of Africa? Majestic big game animals? Exotic foods? How about those famous jungle drums? At Individual Traveller, we feel that the sounds of Africa are just as beautiful as the sights and smells, which is why we encourage all solo travellers in Zimbabwe to stop for refreshments at the fabulous Boma Restaurant. Situated on the banks of the spectacular Victoria Falls, you’ll be greeted by the unique beat of the jungle drums, putting a little rhythm into your soul. While there are great views of Victoria Falls from the restaurant, there is no better way to experience the falls than from up in the air, giving you a breathtaking bird’s eye view. Just 12 minutes in the air provides you with plenty of time to gaze down upon what is one of the most deservedly popular sights in all of Africa. The local town is also well worth exploring, and its small size and compact nature makes it a great place for singles travel, with many of the town’s main sights and attractions easily accessible on foot.
Explore the famous Zambezi Riverand the Hwange National Park with a solo tour group from Individual Traveller
Zimbabwe also offers an amazing chance to African Queen your way down the famous Zambezi River solo-style, wandering the winding waters. Singles travel to Zimbabwe means that you get to pick how you explore the Zambezi, whether its canoe trips along the water, or a calm and peaceful riverside walk. If you’re lucky, from the water you may be able to spot big game animals grazing near the shoreline, giving you a unique opportunity to view these beautiful creatures enjoying their natural habitat. No holiday for singles to Zimbabwe would be complete without stopping by the Linkwasha Camp in the Hwange National Park, with a chance to walk on the wild side on a spectacular wildlife game drive. The park is believed to have more than 40,000 elephants within its limits, and this is one of the best places to experience ecotourism in Africa. Hwange is famous for its dedication to protecting endangered species, offering a highly varied terrain and the ideal environment for a wide range of endangered wildlife.
