[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.

So if you know someone who would like to go solo in 2020, embrace what we have to offer and reach out if you would like some more ideas.

Botswana

WHAT WE LOVE: One of Africa's most iconic destinations, and considered one of the safest countries of Africa, Botswana is the perfect partner to our safari camps in Zambia and easily accessed into and out of Maun for brilliant combinations with Cape Town and the Winelands. The Okavango Delta is a highlight and we love the land- and water-based opportunities to discover nature and truly connect with our roots.

Mwiba Lodge

Mwiba Lodge, a secluded, sophisticated haven set among massive stone boulders, ancient coral trees and acacias, overlooking a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River, is the flagship safari experience in the Legendary Expeditions portfolio. Set in harmony with this idyllic natural backdrop, Mwiba Lodge offers an unmatched experience in luxury adventure. This exclusive lodge mixes both traditional and modern design elements, creating an inviting, sophisticated hideaway. 

The interiors artfully integrate the natural surroundings with layer upon layer of textured creams paired with suede, tans and accents of chocolate and charcoal. From the linen dressed slope-armed sofas to ornately carved wooden leg tables and cascading lighting, the ten double suites all give way to a wide-open layout where each room flows to another.  The bathroom brings the outdoors inside with traditional canvas walls accented with copper fixtures, large soaking tubs with private outside showers, all with transporting views from hardwood plank decks.The grey slate-lined infinity-edge pool overlooks three springs where guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of a constant parade of wildlife.

Located in Mwiba Wildlife Reserve, a conservation concession dedicated to the balance between wildlife and communities, this area is only available to a handful of guests, facilitating an excellent, uncrowded safari experience within the greater Serengeti eco-system. This vast 129,530 acre wildlife reserve is vibrantly lush with 33 freshwater springs and a diverse array of wildlife. Game drives, bush walks and cultural excursions to the local tribe’s village are just a few of the magical experiences that begin at Mwiba, where a world of adventure awaits.
