But for me, I feel that if I went with people that I know, I would have spent more time enjoying the experience with them, rather than branching out and making new friends. By going alone, it meant that I was forced to make friends with different people, and I am so grateful for the experience. I had the best time, and would love to book something else through STA travel, and again go it alone! My plan is to volunteer on a safari in South Africa next year. I volunteered with my favourite wild animals in Thailand - elephants - so I want to expand that experience of working with animals to include my other favourite wild animals - giraffes and lions - alongside others! But just go for it. Take the plunge. As long as you book through a trusted company, you shouldn't be afraid to brave it alone!
