South Africa has long been hailed as a world class safari destination. It is also a world class single safari destination. This means that it is a great place to visit as a single traveler. There are a number of excellent options for single travelers and the diversity on offer is enough to make South Africa a solo destination in its own right. Each destination is South Africa is different and very special, with Cape Town and the Winelands in the south all the way through to Kruger and Madikwe in the north.
Our recommendation to solo travelers is to not limit a safari to just one destination, and this holds particularly true for South Africa. Mix it up if you can. Spend time in Cape Town, but also visit Botswana. Go to the Garden Route, but also visit Zambia. You get more out of a a safari when you combine South Africa with another Southern African Safari Destination.
