Traveling alone.. Like to join forces?

Jump to last reply

Hey guys/girls!

I'm traveling to Zambia beginning of March and staying there until end of April doing my rotations at the hospital.

Beginning of May I'm planning on traveling around south east of Africa for 7 weeks: Malawi, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and finish off with South Africa.

I have traveled around quite a bit, but always with friends. This would be my first solo trip... (maybe not if I find someone nice ^^)..
At first I was quite confident that everything would turn out fine, but I'm starting to wonder..

Do you guys think it's safe to travel around alone as a woman? I have never been to subsaharan Africa..
Even if you guys were to say yes, it's... well, too late, my flights are booked.
But I'd really appreciate if any of you have any advice, etc..

Or maybe some of you are planning on traveling the same countries at the same time as me and would like to join forces?? :)


Cheers!
Piyumi
