[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.

Mozambique

 

WHAT WE LOVE: Besides the fact that most of our team are beach fanatics and keen scuba divers, we love the fact that Mozambique is still rather undiscovered. Our Portfolio includes two amazing beach escapes in the Bazaruto Archipelago. Visitors who combine a safari with the more commercial beaches of Mauritius have no idea on how much they are missing out. Mozambique is renowned for its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and exceptionally friendly people, but by far its biggest draw cards are its expansive beaches, secluded islands and spectacular marine life. With a history of limited coastal development combined with beautiful beaches and amazing numbers of whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles, coral fish and reefs. The setting for this experience is hard to beat.
