Africa among top 4 destinations for solo travelers in 2024

Overseas Adventure Travel (O.A.T.), a company that specializes in personalized small group and solo-friendly travel for Americans ages 50+, shared its Top 4 Solo Adventures for 2024. Three of the Top 4 O.A.T. adventures reserved by solo travelers for 2024 are in Africa.

More than 50% of O.A.T. travelers are solos, and 85% of solo travelers are women. O.A.T. fosters an intimate and accessible experience, with groups limited to no more than 16 travelers by land and no more than 25 by sea.

“As a travel company dedicated to exploring the world’s wonders, we’ve witnessed the trend among solo travelers who are drawn to Africa,” said Brian FitzGerald, Chief Executive Officer of O.A.T. “The magnetic pull of Africa’s countries goes beyond the continent’s incredible landscapes and wildlife; it lies in forging connections with local people and their diverse cultures.”

The Top 4 O.A.T. Solo Adventures for 2024 include:

  1. Ultimate Africa: Botswana, Zambia & Zimbabwe Safari – A 17-day O.A.T. Small Group Adventure where travelers stay in private O.A.T. campsites along the banks of the Kafue River for a portion of the trip.
