As travel trends come and go, one trend that’s gaining popularity is solo traveling. With increasing financial independence and empowerment, more women are embracing adventurous journeys on their own, and Tanzania has become a favored destination for solo female travelers.

To cater to this growing demand, we’ve curated the best places for solo female travelers in Tanzania.

Serengeti bubble


  • Zanzibar boasts world-class beaches with fine white sands, turquoise waters, and vibrant coral reefs. Besides water activities like snorkeling, kitesurfing, and swimming with dolphins, the island offers rich historical and cultural experiences, including the renowned Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Zanzibar is the perfect tropical destination for relaxation, beach photos, and cultural immersion. It’s important to respect local customs during Ramadan by covering knees and shoulders in Stone Town.

Serengeti National Park:

  • For wildlife enthusiasts and photography lovers, there’s no place like the Serengeti.

The park offers safe, guided, and well-organized safaris, making it ideal for solo female travelers seeking an authentic African adventure.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area:

  • Often referred to as “Africa’s Garden of Eden,” Ngorongoro features a massive wildlife population within its UNESCO site crater, the world’s largest inactive caldera. It’s a safe and well-organized safari destination, easily accessible from the Serengeti, making it convenient to combine both iconic parks into one trip.

Lake Manyara National Park:

Visiting the Hadzabe bushmen and Datoga tribe offers a unique cultural immersion experience, learning their traditional practices and skills such as hunting, gathering, and blacksmithing.
