Rwanda has been ranked the world’s sixth safest country for solo travelers, as well as the safest country in Africa.
Switzerland is the safest place in the world for solo travelers, according to the report.
The only African country to make the top ten is Rwanda.
According to a new survey, Rwanda is the sixth safest country in the world for solo travelers.
Usebounce.com, a luggage storage app for finding and booking left luggage and lockers, reported that the ranking was based on two criteria: the crime index score and the security index score, implying that when planning a solo trip, one of the most important factors to consider is the safety of the country to which they are traveling to.
European countries dominated the list according to the index ranking, with Japan and Rwanda being the only Asian and African countries to make the top 10 list of countries.
Switzerland, with a score of 21.7 for the crime index, and a score of 78.3 for the security index, emerged as the safest country for solo travellers, followed by Slovenia (crime index: 22.3; security index: 77.7) and Japan (crime index: 22.4; security index: 77.7).
Georgia, Iceland, Rwanda, Croatia, Czech Republic, Austria, and Denmark, rounded up the top 10 list of safest countries for solo travellers.
Rwanda has put considerable effort into ensuring the security and safety of the country’s territory by building competent and professional security organs.
In 2018, the East-African country was ranked the second safest country in Africa by the 2018 Gallup Global Law and Order report, with 83 per cent of residents expressing confidence in the local police force.
The previous year, Gallup’s Law and Order Index had also ranked Rwanda among the safest countries globally that provide a conducive atmosphere to people who walk alone at night.
