I'm a Canadian and I'll be working with an NGO in White River this July, and I've decided to stay in the area for an additional ten days of sightseeing afterwards.
As a woman alone, how safe is it to drive in this area (Nelspruit, Hazyview, Sabie Sands, Kruger etc.) by myself? I'd love the freedom of traveling on my own, but I don't want to take any unnecessary risks. Would I be better off to find a tour group, or would I likely be ok on my own? Do other women travel this area on their own? I have a fair bit of travel experience, so I'm not totally green, but it is my first time in Africa.
I'd appreciate any local advice!
