Namibia Solo Safaris

The majority of our trips for solo travellers to Namibia are fly-in safaris, however it is possible to self-drive. Where possible, we encourage solo travellers to spend a little extra and fly to the country’s most remote lodges.


Wilderness Serra Cafema on the northern border with Angola is truly exceptional, a destination that very few travellers get to see. Although it is expensive to fly this far, the rewards are endless. We also highly recommend the Schoemans’ Skeleton Coast Safaris. Sossusvlei, Etosha and Damaraland, there are a number of camps that fit the bill for the solo traveller – namely Kulala Desert Lodge or Sossusvlei Desert Lodge in Sossusvlei, Damaraland Camp or Desert Rhino Camp in Damaraland and finally Ongava Lodge or Ongava Tented Camp in Etosha.

We have chosen these particular camps for solo travellers, as they have relatively low single supplements and they encourage communal dining.


It is possible to self-drive around Namibia, as not only is the country safe, but it also has a very good network of roads linking the main attractions. However, a huge proportion of Namibia is cut off from self-drive travellers due to the vast sheets of sand covering the country, and it is these remote areas that we believe are the finest parts. Although we can arrange self-drive trips if clients wish, we think the fly-in option is much better for solo travellers, especially as we consider it is the best way to see the country properly.

Set departures for single travellers

We also offer a number of set departures for single travellers. These set departures are run by some of the best operators in the country and take in the highlights of Namibia. They are usually small-group safari, with group numbers from 6–12 travellers. They are an excellent way to explore the country by road as a solo traveller – please contact us for further details.
