READY, SET, GO!
CEO and founder of Soul Traveller Tours, Siphesihle Penny Ndlela, shares a few practical solo travelling tips: Download Google Maps offline. This will give you all the directions you need within the location, especially when in another country or a remote area without mobile data. Download Google Translator. Especially in places that use a language you’re unfamiliar with. Learn key words in the language of the area you’re visiting to help you connect with the locals.
Should you get lost, find the nearest police station. Organise, prior to your visit, a local tour guide to help you navigate the area safely.
