A solo safari can be a very social vacation style (or not), game drives are shared (and private vehicles can be arranged), meals are communal (or in your tent if you prefer your own company), but one constant is that hospitality in Africa is so intuitive, your guides and camp managers will assist and guide you to ensure that your stay is ideal!
Southern African hospitality is so special, I found myself hanging out with staff in the lodge during my afternoon rest time. So many staff members of the Botswanan and Zimbabwean camps are incredibly long serving, and having grown up locally in the closest village their awareness of the area and its history is enthralling. Stories of the people and land were so willingly shared, I never felt like I was imposing and I appreciated every minute that each person shared with me.
Traveling in Zimbabwe and Botswana solo was a perfect mix of fun, social, action-packed safari, and moments to really connect with myself and the wonderful hosts who showcase the warmth of Africa so perfectly.
