For all the independent globe trotters out there, this one’s for you. Safari adventures may not be the first holidays that come to mind when you think of solo travel. But we’ve noticed more and more solitary explorers staying in our camps and lodges recently. So we asked them to share their thoughts on what makes a safari holiday the ideal solo travel experience, and this is what they said…
Independent and solo on safari.
Opportunity to pursue personal passions
A safari experience offers the perfect chance for a little self-enrichment. Whether it’s perfecting your camera skills on our Robin More Photographic safari or learning fascinating wildlife facts while out on game drives, escaping to the wilderness can be a great journey of discovery.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain

If you enjoy meeting new people, then a safari is a great option. Adventures into the wilderness always bring like-minded souls together, so don’t be surprised if you make meaningful connections along the way. Whether it’s dining around our mammoth communal table at Sala’s Camp, visiting the Samburu homestead of your safari guide, or sharing stories around a campfire, you need never be alone (unless you want to be!)
Meet new people and new cultures making new bonds.
Ideal for time-out
Many of the soloists we spoke to highlighted the ample opportunity for silence and solitude on a safari. Spending time alone in nature is a luxury that we don’t get to indulge in often enough. Listening to the sounds of the wild and feeling the immense sense of space can be a cleansing experience. From riverside hammocks to tranquil massages, our properties offer no shortage of peaceful spots in which to enjoy a little ‘you’ time.
