We’re Women. We Travel Solo. And We Love It! We’ve experienced first-hand how travel transforms: Traveling gave us new careers, introduced us to incredible people, and showed us the beauty of life in a way we hadn’t felt before we stepped on a plane.
Wild Rainbow African Safaris was featured in Passport Magazine. This article goes in depth about Jody and her in knowledge and passion for Africa and all it has to offer. View a pdf of the article here.
Wild Rainbow African Safaris highlighted in Travel Weekly article “Challenges exist, but Africa can be safe place for LGBT travelers“. This article covers the benefits and challenges for LGBT travelers in Africa. Jody talks about a Uganda gorilla trip that had to be cancelled because of Anit-Homosexuality legislation (later annulled that same year).
Philanthropist and LGBT activist Jody Cole didn’t set out to start a safari company, but once she followed her life-long dream to go on safari in Africa, her course was set.
Ten years ago, Wild Rainbow African Safaris led its first custom African trip, taking 20 people to Tanzania. A year later, Jody Cole bought out her business partner and took her first group solo to South Africa for a walking and wildlife safari. Since then, she has provided hundreds of guests with the opportunity to safely experience Africa and all its delights, from stays in five-star luxury lodges and mobile tent camps to cultural exchanges and Cape Town nightclubs.
For a decade Jody Cole, owner and operator of Wild Rainbow African Safaris, has unraveled the continent’s mystery, magic, and complexity for travelers.
