Dsquared, And remember, if he (husband) is there, those safari guides will just have to spend their charm on other single women travellers...

I personally have not used Good Earth tours, but they are supposed to be one of the best to use. I am a 30 year old single traveler.... Visited Tanzania earlier this year. I stayed in hotels, lodges, etc., but felt safe the whole time. I wish I did the camping part....but then again I had my fill on Kilimanjaro.. first night the tent leaked from the rain!... luckily my stuff was in a water proof bag. Okay, going back to safety, I don't see any problems traveling on your own.. just don't venture outside by yourself in camp and don't walk around the cities at night. Please make sure you have enough first aid supplies as you will not be near any health facilities...and PLEASE use sunscreen! I spent two days in a "hospital" from 2nd degree sundburn from the altitude on Kili and from not enough sunscreen. It's quite painful with the salt water baths! I apologize if I'm scaring anyone.. just want people to be prepared. Tanzania is a beautiful country and people are very friendly! I loved it so much that I am returning on Dec 26 for another Kili climb and horse riding safari... again as a solo traveler.
