My friend will pay for any costs to change my trip or the single supplement but I am not sure I am comfortable to do a 12 day independent tour by myself. Should I change to a group tour? If so, through what operator? Do you meet people at your lodges/camps? Has anyone done an independent tour by themselves? Help! I need advice.
:-( So disappointed.
