Tanzania is great for a solo adventure. Not only is there enough wildlife throughout the country’s parks and reserves to excite even the foremost seasoned safaris, but there are some really friendly and great-value camps and lodges too!
A key reason the country is so good for single travelers is that it’s possible to hitch up with other solo adventurers, couples, and little groups on set itineraries. This really helps bring down the value – the more people in a safari vehicle, the less costly a day on safari is!
If you don’t want to hitch up with others for your whole safari, preferring to travel on your own to every property, we’ll simply book your accommodation and you’ll persist safari with whoever is staying at the lodge or camp. For this type of solo traveler, there are a pair of considerations to take on board. this is often all down to the levy some companies put on single travelers, referred to as the single supplement. the only supplement can be as much as 50 per cent and goes towards the cost of the other person who is not in your room.
Where to travel in Tanzania on your solo safari
The area we recommend for solo travellers joining a ‘group’ safari is northern Tanzania. Here we provide a number of safaris to:
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Tarangire park .
Many of those trips involve mobile camps, while others are lodge-based safaris – therefore the choice for solo travellers is very wide. A specialist guide would be based at the property you visit, accompanying you on private game drives, or he/she would accompany you throughout your trip.
For travellers making their own way through the country we recommend:
– Parts of the Serengeti and therefore the Ngorongoro Crater are amazing for game drives featuring all Big Five – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo! There are numerous smaller predators and herbivores too, and many birds. Please contact us if you’re curious about visiting the Serengeti while the herds of the Great Migration are in residence, and we’ll do our greatest to get you a front-row seat. Walking Safaris
– We recommend Tarangire for the large elephant migration – again, just allow us to know if you’re keen on visiting at this specific time of year.
