South Africa, Botswana & Zimbabwe
This Southern Africa adventure will take you through the most majestic landscapes past an abundance of wildlife, golden sunsets, waterfalls, salt flats, and even a watery wilderness.
We start our adventure looking for the Big 5 in Kruger National Park in South Africa. A quick flight takes us to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, where we will also cruise down the river on sunset safaris. Botswana is where we will meet tribes along the Okavango Delta, explore the salt flats, and continue with game drives in national parks with breathtaking lodging and incredible wildlife encounters.

Chobe Safari Lodge
We love this lodge for it’s location on the world’s most elephant-rich river in the small town of Kasane. Overlook the river and watch for wildlife while enjoying the incredible food or sipping a cocktail. Rooms are spacious and decorated in that in traditional African safari style.
This dream property is built around the watering hole that attracts so many animals that we can almost promise a sighting from your room. The rooms themselves are elegantly built on stilted wooden platforms offering elevated views of the open floodplain and watering hole.

What our travelers say
Best chance to get to know people in the network!
“I joined the SoFe Network on Facebook 3 years ago but joined the membership because I wanted to interact with people without the weirdness of Facebook social boundaries. It absolutely worked, and I’ve made so many friends and been on quite a few zoom events. The events are amazing, the people are amazing, best chance to get to know people in the network!” Kirsten | Membership
One of the best trips I’ve ever been on.
“I had always wanted to go to Morocco but I was hesitant to go alone which normally I have no problem doing. I saw this trip advertised on the Solo Female Traveler Network Facebook page and the more I looked into it the more I wanted to go. So I did..and let me tell you that it was one of the best trips I’ve ever been on…seriously.” Jennifer H. | Morocco
So much more than a tour.
“I have been on three tours with these ladies, and I can not even explain how amazing my experiences have been. It’s so much more than just a tour. I have made life-long friends who understand my wanderlust, met local people who taught me the warmth and kindness of the places we’ve visited, and I have left feeling empowered to travel more.” Megan S. | Bali
