Solo travel experience

I started my journey in Kenya in Mombasa, then flew to Rwanda and took a gorilla trekking trip, then travelled overland and stayed overnight in Rwanda, Uganda, until I returned back to Kenya. Then I flew to South Africa and travelled along the coast of Cape Town, Hermanus, Simons Town, Gansbaai and Stellenbosch. It was the trip of a lifetime.
