Ideas & inspiration for Solo Travel in Zimbabwe
Zimbabweans are some of the most friendly and welcoming people you'll meet, and by travelling alone, you'll have the chance to connect with them in a way that larger groups seldom do. Furthermore, by combining locations such as Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park and Matobo National Park in western Zimbabwe, solo travellers can avoid pricy light aircraft flights, travelling by road instead.
Victoria Falls Town, with its awe-inspiring namesake, makes a reasonably economic stop for a few nights and combines effortlessly with Hwange National Park. In Zimbabwe's safari camps, activities are generally shared, and in some properties meals are communal, so there is plenty of opportunity to meet and get to know fellow guests, all while enjoying the countries top-notch guiding and spectacular wilderness areas.
Musango Safari Camp
Musango Safari Lodge is unusual among Zimbabwe’s safari lodges in that it doesn’t charge single supplements. This, coupled with social dining arrangements and friendly hosts, makes it a good stop for solo travellers who want to enjoy Lake Kariba.
John's Camp doesn't charge single supplements and both meals and activities are taken as a group with other guests. This makes it an affordable and sociable option for solo travellers visiting Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park.
With excellent facilities and amenities on a private estate not far from the centre of Windhoek, including a well-maintained gym, a state-of-the-art spa and five restaurants, the Am Weinberg would make a good choice for solo travellers in Namibia.
