[Solo Travel] How to create a safari for 3
27 January 2020

JUST I, MYSELF & ME


I planned an African safari, to see what I could see
'Twas very small, three guests in all,
Just I, myself and me.

Myself discovered the jungles wild
While I relaxed under a tree.
'Twas also I who connected with local tribes,
And travelled to Zim and Zam with me.

In recent years, there’s been a surge in solo travel all over the world. We have certainly seen this across our Portfolio, interestingly with a higher proportion of solo female guests. To ensure you stay on trend we wanted to share some of our best options for your next solo travel itinerary.

Being more on an introvert myself, I always loved the poem which I modified for today's Monday Minute. It is about a little girl having an afternoon tea party and has always made me happy knowing it is okay go it alone.

Namibia

WHAT WE LOVE: The big open spaces, incredible dark skies at night, landscapes that take your breath away and the desert climate that makes for fantastic photography. Namibia is a country of many cultures, stories, and history. One of the highlights of this mostly desert country is the NamibRand Nature Reserve. With its own set of stories that tell of perseverance, commitment, passion, and success, we are thrilled to represent the Premier Camps in the Wolwedans Collection.

Tanda Tula Field Camp

Launched March 2014, Tanda Tula Field Camp is a first of its kind in South Africa. It is a non-permanent explorer-styled tented camp that has been considered the most environmentally friendly camp in South Africa. "Treading softly on the surface of the earth" is a foundation principle of everything that Tanda Tula stands for, and a principle that is echoed throughout each element of the new field camp experience. The Field Camp has evolved to meet the growing requirement in the market for privacy and exclusivity, in one of the few remaining private wilderness areas forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Tanda Tula Field Camp is a unique safari experience unlike any other. Consisting of four custom designed tents, with en-suite open air bush bathrooms and a communal mess tent, Tanda Tula Field Camp draws on the traditions of the classic East African safari with detailed campaign style furniture and soft furnishings from the Cape, North Africa, and Zanzibar. The field camp is set up and taken down for each safari, making it the ultimate eco-friendly camp, designed for minimum energy consumption and ground impact.  The camp caters for between 4 and 8 guests on an exclusive-use basis only. Guests are hosted by some of the industry's leading iconic guides who accompany them on an extraordinary journey of exploration and adventure.
