5 Solo Safaris for Single Travelers
African Adventure explorations aren’t limited to couples and groups; single travelers can join in the safari excitement and have an equally astounding trip, plus the luxury of stretching out in spacious accommodations, while having the camaraderie of dinner and safari companions on one of our group adventures. While any trip can became a solo journey with a “singles supplement,” the following safaris are especially good fits for those who want to see amazing Africa on their own, in the comfort of a small group with 5 to 9 other people:
1. Group Primate and Plains Safari to Uganda and Rwanda
“My trip to Uganda and Rwanda was wonderful. It was everything I expected and more. Everything was 5-star and I couldn’t be happier!” says client Amanda Bush about this unique AAC trip.
This group adventure encompasses the thrill of gorilla treks and wildlife safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Volcanoes National Park, chimp trekking in Kibale Forest, and game viewing in Uganda the “The Pearl of Africa—all areas where the pristine natural areas and incredible wildlife encounters are some of the best in Africa. As for the gorilla treks, here’s what client Jeff Skinner says: “IT WAS GREAT! THANK YOU!!!! Uganda was absolutely unbelievably wonderful, exciting, awesome. We had a short drive (45 minutes), a short trek (no more than 45 minutes) and an hour surrounded by the H Group of gorillas, 18 members walking around us. We saw all 18! The silverback was one of the first to come out of the bush and he sat down across from us. Then one by one all the others paraded in front of us… I don’t know how this visit could have been any better!!! ”
2. South Africa Luxury Safari and Cape Getaway
A trip for travelers who want a journey to combine a Top Safari Lodge and Top hotel in the Cape.

After a full immersion in the bush, head to glorious Cape Town and a stay at elegant Cape Grace or jewel box Ellerman House hotels in Cape Town. Then venture into the winelands near Franschoek and Paarl to toast to your amazing South African adventure.
3. Explorer Group Safari to Tanzania
This is not only our most affordable group safaris in Tanzania, but also hits the exciting Migration.

Highlights include Tarangire National Park where activities include game drives, guided walking safaris, and cultural interaction with the Maasai; the Great Rift Valley; spectacular Ngorongoro Crater; and the “endless plains” of the Serengeti. AAC client John Munro reminisces: “The trip to Tanzania went great was able to see lots of game. Shaukat was very easy to work with and he made suggestions to the group which bettered every ones experience. Enclosed is a picture that got me recognized for the rest of the trip, it was sure an interesting experience since I did not know what I was getting my self into, which was a Massai dance.”

5. Botswana Wing Safari to Desert and Delta
A flying safari into the most beautiful natural areas of Botswana, including six nights at two different camps in both the unique Central Kalahari and the rich wilderness areas of either Linyanti or the Okavango Delta. AAC client Merrilee Shipman experienced the wonder of Botswana on this group trip and says: “The trip of a lifetime was indeed this spectacular adventure to Botswana, the Kalahari Desert and Moremi / Delta…There was so much to see that I hardly know where to begin. Some of the highlights were: Seeing a live Wildebeest birth in the wild…the time the “Elephants Came to Tea”. Ban had just set the Landrover “table” for afternoon tea when a herd of Elephant decided to join us. Well, we hurried into the vehicle and just watched. Elephant after Elephant passed by and it was amazing to watch. Such huge creatures…And we saw lions, fabulous birds, and oh so much! Thank you for putting together such a seamless trip which was totally AMAZING! Looking forward to more Safaris,” Merrilee Shipman
