According to adventure specialist, Acacia Africa, the number of single female travellers is on the rise

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - July 3rd, 2015 - Female travellers are clearly taking the lead when it comes to solo travel, women with wanderlust or “womads” outnumbering the men on Acacia Africa’s camping overland tours by 3:1. 

Caroline Tinsley, Sales & Marketing Manager at Acacia Africa comments "Women have always been adventurous, but we’re much more connected these days and many of our travel plans are based on the feedback and conversations we have with single "womads" on social networking sites."

Acacia Africa’s camping overland expeditions are ideal for singles covering countries where transport can be tricky and those who are globe trotting for longer periods can take their foot of the gas for a while and let a tour leader do the leg work.

Kristin Addis, a former Los Angeles-based investment banker and Editor of Be My Travel Muse, comments “ After eight years I chose to truck it around Africa for 35 days. Generally everything I do is solo and independent. I don’t like tours and am really not a fan of excessive hand-holding. What I liked about my overland safari was that it wasn’t an air conditioned “fancy resort" fake experience. It would involve pitching tents, avoiding scorpions, running barefoot in deserts, and seeing lions from a big truck as we powered through Southern and Eastern Africa. In short, it was an unexpectedly sublime adventure with a few awesome 20-something girls and guys. I got along with each person, and honestly loved finally letting someone else do the planning for a while. Solo travel was starting to ware on me and I needed a little break.”

Kristin travelled on the 35 day Cape Town to Zanzibar. Game drives in the Chobe, Etosha and South Luwangwa National Parks feature on the itinerary, along with mokoro safaris in the Okavango Delta, optional dive safaris at Lake Malawi and a beach stay on the Spice Island of Zanzibar. From £2,455pp (no single supplement) including transport, camping accommodation, local payment most meals and services of a tour leader/driver. Excludes return flight. Year round departures. Starts Cape Town - ends Zanzibar. 18-39 years.
