I travelled with a female friend, which was fine if you got indoors before dark. After this, the atmosphere, especially in the built up areas, changed and locals would urge you to get home quickly. The safest form of travel on your own (which we also took on) was the Baz Bus. We did meet some lone travellers, but from memory none were girls - maybe there was a reason for that.
