South Africa Solo Safari Vacations

As with so much of Africa, the single supplement makes solo travel much more expensive than travelling as one of a couple. Nevertheless, it is possible to arrange a great trip within a reasonable budget!

When booking solo travellers, we take care to use specific hotels, guesthouses, or safari lodges in South Africa that have only a very small single supplement, or do not charge one at all.

Boutique guesthouses

South Africa has a major advantage over the remainder of Africa in that it has a level of boutique guest house accommodation that you do not get elsewhere on the continent. These little guest houses offer superb value for money and a personal approach to service and hospitality. Also, they are also usually located in the busy, interesting parts of cities and are consequently great hotels for solo travellers.

Set departures

We also run a number of different trips that are designed specifically for solo travellers in South Africa. We have a selection of set departure trips that run weekly. By joining a group, solo travellers are able to see the main parts of the country without breaking the bank! Although the majority of rooms do have single supplements, they are minimal.

No single supplement

There are certain properties in South Africa that charge no single supplement.
