At Thornybush, all our lodges cater for solo travellers on bush holidays. Whether you’d like a smaller, more intimate safari vacation at one of our lodges or want to share this experience with newfound friends at a larger, busier lodge, Thornybush is well aware of what a solo traveller wants out of a safari holiday. Travelling solo grants our guests the freedom to move as they please and shape their days to their own specific whims. Meals can be enjoyed in the company of our guides or other guests, with a lot of free time in the day to soak up the peace and beauty of the bush. Browse our bush holiday specials and find the perfect solo safari fit for you.
To travel in good company is a magical thing, but there’s nothing quite like the freedom of travelling on your own terms. Solo travellers to Thornybush Game Lodges can find luxury in their own freedom and move at their own pace. The joy of going on a solo safari on a bush holiday is that you can be fully immersed in the bush experience, and feel totally grounded with your surroundings.
Freedom of choice
As a solo traveller, you’ll likely join other groups and individuals on game drives and at mealtimes. While this is often a fantastic time to meet other travellers with the same love of safari, you’ll also have the option of disengaging from the group and spending your safari holiday the way you want to.
Peace of Mind
We understand that travelling alone brings with it its own challenges and concerns; one of them can be safety. At Thornybush, our aim is to take care of you every step of the way. We can meet you right off the plane to ensure a safe journey directly to your lodge, help plan your itinerary and ensure that while you’re with us, in the security of the reserve, you should have no concerns of any kind. Let us take care of you so you can enjoy the best of our wildlife, free of any worries on your safari vacation.
From game drives and sundowners, to pre-dinner drinks and hosted meals you’ll get many opportunities to socialise with other guests, and our warm, hospitable staff. You’ll soon discover that many of the activities on your safari vacation are enjoyed socially. Whether it’s by sharing game drive sightings or during a morning coffee out on a drive, it’s our aim to make sure that everyone feels included and is a part of the Thornybush experience.
