Best safari and wildlife holidays for single travelers

All of our small group wildlife trips are suitable for solo vacations. Whether you want to see a gorilla in the wild jungles of Uganda or spot Polar Bear in the Arctic, these are our top safari and wildlife holidays for single adventurers. 

Botswana Wildlife Safari

Join like-minded travellers for a safari game drive through Botswana's Chobe National Park. Look out for herds of elephant roaming the dusty trails and have your binoculars ready to spot fish-eagle, jacana, kingfisher and heron at the Moremi Game Reserve. Work with fellow explorers to scan the waterways of the Okavango Delta in search of lion, leopard and rhino and see who can first lay their eyes on a semi-submerged crocodile in the murky shallows.

Explore Costa Rica

Solo adventurers will never feel alone on a small group exploration of Costa Rica's lush jungles. From the bright, emerald-green resplendent quetzal birds fluttering through the canopy to laid-back sloths draped over mosy branches, there is exotic wildlife hiding in every crevice of the Monteverde Cloudforest. Hang out with new friends, and some white-faced capuchin monkeys, on the pristine sandy beaches of Manuel Antonio National. And, if you want to witness turtles nesting in Tortuguero, book a trip between June and September for the best chance.

Gorilla and Chimp Safari

If seeing a gorilla in the wild is on your bucket list, book onto our small group safari tour in Uganda. As a solo explorer, you'll benefit from the knowledge of an expert local guide as you hike through dewy vegetation, scale steep pathways and wade through muddy ravines in the dense jungle landscape. The atmosphere is almost electric as you make way in silence, and your heart thumps loudly in anticipation and excitement. Then, as if out of nowhere, there they are; a family of gorilla grazing on bamboo and playing in the trees. An astonishing sight that you'll treasure forever.

Madagascar Wildlife Tour

Lemurs are, undoubtedly, the stars of the show on our small group wildlife tours in Madagascar. Highly sociable, the forest reverberates with their distinctive vocal calls as they chat with one another and hang out in small groups amongst the dense vegetation. Wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, these fascinating primates are unique to this Indian Ocean island and are full of character. Watch them skipping along the forest floor and jumping from tree to tree, and share the magic of this exotic landscape with new friends.

Realm of the Polar Bear

Set sail on an ice ship for a once in a lifetime wildlife expedition through the remote polar region of the Arctic. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of polar bear in the bleak white tundras and see if you can spot walrus basking on the icy beaches.  Join other passengers to head out in a small zodiac rib and get up close with seals sleeping on towering ice floes. Compare stories as you retire back to the warmth of the ship for dinner and get ready for another packed day of Arctic adventures tomorrow.

Discover Belize

For a solo wildlife holiday like no other, head to the Central American coastal country of Belize. Join a small group of avid adventurers to wander along the verdant banks of Crooked Tree Lagoon in search of the tallest flying bird in The Americas, the rare jabiru stork, and dive into the transparent waters of the colourful Belize Barrier Reef to swim with turtle. The cries of spider and howler monkey fill the forest canopy at the Community Baboon Sanctuary, and we'll meet friendly locals working on an organic farm in the jungle-clad Maya Mountains.

As a solo traveller, you'll feel at ease exploring the remote jungles of Borneo in the safety of a group and under the expert guidance of a local leader. On the banks of the Kinabatangan River, mangroves bathed in shadow are home to a vast array of wildlife including the endangered orangutan and pygmy elephant. Head deep into the rainforests of Danum Valley to explore the vast chambers of the Gomantong Caves and watch the morning mist roll over the top of the canopy from a tree-top observation deck at a scientific research station in the heart of the jungle.
