1. Who are our solo safari holidays for?
Yellow Zebra solo safaris are suitable for all adventurous individuals seeking new experiences in the wild terrains of Safari Africa. There are many reasons our clients choose to travel solo – they might wish to unwind from daily life, to discover and see incredible wildlife, to experience the thrill of the wilderness for themselves, and so on.
2. Will I be joining a group?
No. We tailor-make safari and beach holidays that take you to the real Africa – no readymade tours or set departures. We aim to accommodate our solo travellers within social camps and lodges, unless an alternative approach is preferred. Singles-friendly properties have communal dining areas and other spaces for social interaction. And game drives are often operated on a shared basis, usually with a maximum of 6 people per game-viewing vehicle.
3. Is my solo safari single supplement free?
Unfortunately, most safari camps and lodges do charge a single supplement. That said, there are some excellent exceptions to this rule. Please speak to our experts to find out more about these camps – for a quick overview, take a look at our blog here.
4. Will I be the only solo traveller at camp?
It is difficult to say. However, traditionally a safari is an authentic social activity, and communal dining in camp is very much the norm. More often than not, guests gather together for evening meals and socialise around the mess area and campfire.
5. Will I be picked up from the airport and transferred to my safari camp or lodge?
Yes, unless you have booked your own private pick-ups. All our tailor-made trips can include a meet-and-greet service provided by our respected ground-handler partners.
6. What type of dining experience can I expect?
As mentioned, many camps and lodges usually offer communal dining to in-house guests, making for a friendly and lively dining experience.
7. Will I be sharing the safari vehicle?
Yes, unless you have chosen to make your own arrangements.
8. How safe is it to travel to Africa solo?
It is very safe, as you will always have a host with you, every step of the way on your tailor-made safari trip. If you have any concerns about solo travel, please feel free to discuss these with a member of the YZ team.
