“Oh you dreamy African Safari destination. Home to a million wild animals, embracing the highest free standing mountain and the most spectacular beaches. As I see you more in photos, I imagine myself on Mt. Kilimanjaro, amid the wildebeest in Serengeti and sipping cocktails in Zanzibar. All I ask myself is, how? How and where will I travel solo in Tanzania.”
Did we manage to reciprocate your feelings? Whilst Tanzania is one of those bucket list, must go, holiday destination, most solo travels after in-depth research, often realize, affording a safari all alone, is hefty penny wise, and planning a solo travel itinerary to Tanzania, can get quite complicated. Whilst this may be true to an extent, we would say, it is not impossible to explore Tanzania by yourself. All you need to know is how to do it all and where can you go as a Solo traveller.
The good news is you can cover many destinations as a solo traveller without compromising on the diversity of this adventurous destination. We will share with you, the top places to explore as a solo travel and how you can plan your itinerary.
Wildlife Adventure – Northern Circuit Safari
A lot has been said about Serengeti’s wildebeest migration and Ngorongoro’s Big 5 animals and definitely these destinations are worth a visit. While doing a solo trip to the Safari Parks is extremely expensive, you can still join a group departure, meet new travellers and pay a price which is affordable, without going deep into your pockets. If you do not have many days in hands, you could spend 5 perfect days on a budget or a luxury itinerary that give you a choice of staying in authentic bush camps or high-end lodges. Group Safaris are perfectly tailored for single travelers and give you the opportunity to see the wild, at a great price!
Hike The Highest Free standing Mountain of The World
If you love active adventure or if you are up to challenging yourself to something really big, you will definitely have Mt. Kilimanjaro on your to go list. If you want to stay motivated by joining other travellers, it is possible to go with co-hikers, as you not only save big money, but also enjoy an incredible experience with like-minded individuals. For your knowledge around 30,000 climbers attempt to summit Kilimanjaro with nearly 60 percent success rate. If climbing Kilimanjaro is your dream, here is a perfect chance for you!
Swim with the whale sharks, sea turtles, go for kite-surfing or sea diving adventure for sol-travels are unlimited in Tanzania! We would highly recommend you to visit Zanzibar and Mafia island that offer flying packages with the perfect itineraries. In Zanzibar, you will also have the opportunity to sample street food, go on spice tour and enjoy island hopping; experience that keep you occupied while soaking the goodness of tropical paradise. Small sandbanks of Sinda, Mbudya and Nakupenda make for a perfect day trip! Day guides are always available or you are also free to travel solo.
If you are in Tanzania for a business trip, on transit for a couple of hours or have a handful of days to explore around, as a solo traveller, city explorations are something unique and connect you to the local culture and daily lifestyle. In the safari capital of Arusha and commercial capital of Dar es Salaam and rustic UNESCO Heritage Site of Stone Town, you will be able to visit local markets visit historical sites, sample street food and buy some souvenirs, while we would recommend to do this with a local guide, you also have the choice to explore around on your own.
