Zimbabwe has had a number of ups and downs politically speaking over the years, and this has influenced the development of the country in many ways. While poverty remains a prevalent issue within Zimbabwe, local people are as friendly as ever and single travelers to this Southern African country are never felt unsafe or unwelcome. In fact, the economy generated from tourism is a huge support for local communities, and by travelling to Zimbabwe you are in many ways participating in helping to increase the livelihoods of many locals.
Zimbabwe has a long history of safaris, and the country is very well established to receive single travelers. Tourism however, is not booming in Zimbabwe, and this makes it more important for single travelers to identify lodges and operators in the country that have a sense of community and inclusion. A solo safari experience in an empty lodge with minimal staff on hand would be quite lonely. As a result we work with lodges in Zimbabwe that are busy, dynamic, and fully inclusive.
Zimbabwe is a diverse safari destination, and a lot of punch can be packed into a relatively short trip making it a great destination for single travelers with limited time to spend in Africa.
