Any form of traveling around this beautiful world will be enjoyable for those with restless feet, but theres something extraordinary about solo travelers. Traveling alone is often thought of as a daunting experience. However, you will be happy to know that as South Africa, in spite of having some of the poorest countries on the planet, is not an unsafe place to travel, particularly for solo adventurers. Here are some of the best and safest countries for solo travelers in South Africa:BOTSWANA:Botswana is a friendly and safe destination to travel. Botswana is famous for its elephants. There are approximately 110, 000 elephants in the country, the leading population of these royal animals in South Africa. Moremi and Chobe National Parks are also great options for indulging in adventures like camping and hiking, and the Tsodilo Hills is a haven to some remarkable cave paintings. Going around this country is safe and simple. Actually, you wont have a difficulty getting around there as more or less everyone speaks English. During your stay do not forget to try the mokoro ride in order to experience an exceptional canoeing ride!One more unbelievable thing to do here is to observe the daily life of the elephants, zebras, and hippos in their normal habitat!MOZAMBIQUE:Mozambique is the perfect destination for any traveler who enjoys spending hours around natural and untouched beaches. If you are going to South Africa to spend some time surrounded by white sandy beaches, getting shades under the palm trees, enjoying hammocks, sipping fresh coconut juice, and just relishing the beach life, in that case, Mozambique is for you!You can also enjoy exploring life under the sea as this country has affluent marine life, so remember to take your goggles to snorkel!It is a place to discover palm trees, amazing restaurants serving delectable local food and seas so rich in underwater life. Its a great destination for anyone who is looking to go on wild adventures or just wants to experience a wonderful country that is nowhere near as dangerous for solo travelers as is commonly thought.South Africa:South Africans call their homeland a world in one country. Firstly, a more naturally beautiful country would be difficult to find - from the serrated peaks of the Drakensberg mountains, to the contorted and timeless semi-desert landscapes of the Karoo and the forested sea-shores and mirror-like lakes of the Garden Route, the enchanting temperate valleys of the Winelands, Table Mountain - all under an endless azure-blue sky. Quite remarkable! The serene environment of the country is ideal for the solo travelers who wish to lose himself in natures lap.Then there is the wildlife, one of the main reasons visitors travel to Africa. One of the finest places in the world to experience this is the Kruger National Park.The cities are amazing and highlight the countrys diversity. Johannesburg is the city of gold and South Africas cultural capital. Then there is the Mother City, Cape Town, overlooked by the vast bulk of Table Mountain and easily Africas most beautiful and sophisticated city.From the bottom of my traveler spirit, I encourage you to indulge in local authentic experiences when traveling the world, especially South Africa. You leave with the feeling that the southern part of the continent, open to the world after years of isolation, is a land of superlatives which cannot fail to impress the welcome visitor! This is what makes Africa so special. It is the place that youll always want to go back to, as a solo traveller.
