Being a solo traveller is a two-fold affair! On the one hand you are completely independent, having to think only of yourself and no one else’s likes and dislikes. (Phew!) But on the other you’ll need to carefully consider issues like the extra cost of guides and private transfers, as well as security and safety, single supplements etc.
We’ve listed some important tips and options to take into account for your solo trip to South Africa. From our experience, we find that there are some places – and some ways of travelling – that work better than others for solo travellers in Southern Africa.

Our clients often ask us about the best places to eat on their stay in the Winelands. But more often than not, what they really want us to recommend is restaurants with a view! Why stare at the walls when you could look out over fields of vineyards and the towering mountains of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek?
The Winelands are home to some of South Africa‘s top restaurants, and for good reason. The choices are plentiful, and the variety is diverse and simply… delicious. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best restaurants with spectacular views.
Some travellers have a rough idea of where they want to go to Africa, but the reality is that most people don’t! (Or they find out that the place on their wishlist is not ideal for the only time that they can get away…) There are so many options, plus an even greater abundance of ‘opinions’ out there.
So to end off our ‘Where to go in Africa‘ series we’ll be talking about safari travel in the months of February, March and April. We hope this inspires you!
