In recent years it has become more and more acceptable for women to travel without their husbands, significant others, or children. However, this trend does not mean that women are all traveling solo. “While I have enjoyed my solo travels tremendously and I am a big advocate of women hitting the road on their own, I have also experienced the immense joy of traveling with other women”, says Beth Whitman.
Though it might feel like a leap of faith to join a tour group as a solo traveler, you might be surprised at how quickly you will bond with the other women. When you are out of your element, often your guard is down, and you are more willing to share experiences and details of your life that you might not normally share with even your closest friends. Depending upon where you are traveling, physical and/or emotional limits may be tested—which also helps you to quickly bond with others.
Before you book your trip, get to know a little about the tour operator and, if possible, the other members. You want to be sure that you are not joining a group who want to party endlessly if that is not your style, and that the tour focuses on things that interest you. No sense in spending all your time trudging through museums if you prefer to spend your time outdoors hiking.
Make a conscious choice as to whether you want a single room (for which you will usually pay a single supplement fee) or if you are willing to share. If your sleeping pattern is odd or you have habits that might annoy a travel mate you are just getting to know, consider getting a room of your own and incurring that extra expense.
If possible, try to get to know the other women on the tour prior to departure. You might wish to call or email other participants so that you are not getting to know them for the first time on day one.
Embrace South Africa Tours will select their group members very strictly and supply contact information for the group to interact with each other before the trip. Since the group will consist of 12 members, the small group will help to build meaningful relationships.
