I am planning to go to Tanzania and Kenya for 16 days in September.
I am a womam and I will be travelling solo.I'd like to kniw uf ut is easy to travel
around this countries as a solo backpacker.I've been reading several
post and it seems it might be difficult to find a safari if you go alone.
I would like to find a local agebcy and join a group for th safari or even
for a tour around thede countries.U think it might be much cheaper
that booking in Europe.Dies anybidy know any company located in
Tanzania or Kenya?I want to go to Zanxibar but I see this is easy for
backpackers.I'd like aldo to ho to a local villague.
Beside this'I would like to know a budget fir this trip per day.I know tickets
for nstional parks are expensive.But beside this,is it very expensive?
I am planning a few days in Natinal parks,safatis,but not everyday.
Any tip is appeciate!!!
Thans a lot!

2Its much easier to organise a safari and cheaper in country aslo if your hanging around backpackers like arusha bp or other places you should find plenty of people to join you. zanzibars a piece of piss solo although especially for a woman safety is a big concern. Village visits are easy to organise some are more authentic than others your best off talking to a few people and finding a company taht way. Kessey brothers based in moshi run good safaris for a decent price and most of your budget will go on travelling between cities and on safari fees the rest is very cheap although accomadation can be a pain

Of course you can go alone solo girl! No worries! I was in Africa alone for 8 months and those were the best moths in my life, believe me :) When it comes to safari I can tell you it can be even cheaper, because companies are very often looking for one or two persons to fill up the car, I got very good deals this way. I can recommend you africanmosaictours.com from Mombasa and the super friendly owner Max, he should be able to help you :) if you have any more questions feel free to ask
