Solo Travel Tips

I was traveling as a solo traveler in Africa can be scary. If you are not yet sure how you should go about it or solo travel tips, I feel you.

I felt the same way before I started exploring Kenya as a solo traveler. I was so scared that I wasn’t even sure if I should do it, alone as a young woman. 

During six years of traveling in Kenya as a solo traveler, I have organized a list of solo travel tips on how you can travel safely in Kenya.

The most important thing I learned while traveling solo is, it is advisable to practice the word “NO” and utilize it while traveling.

“As a solo female traveler it is important to learn to say “NO”.”
