If you’re an adventurous sort dreaming of an epic trip but have no travel partner, don’t let that stop you. Solo travel — with the freedom to do whatever, whenever you please — has been so gaining popularity in recent years that there are myriad companies offering options that will amplify the adventure while cancelling out the potential downsides, such as safety concerns and the added expense of the dreaded single supplement.  ..

There’s never been a more important time to support independent media.

From World War 1 to present-day cosmopolitan South Africa and beyond, the Sunday Times has been a pillar in covering the stories that matter to you.

For just R80 you can become a premium member (digital access) and support a publication that has played an important political and social role in South Africa for over a century of Sundays. You can cancel anytime.
