If you are feeling nervous at all about going on an Intrepid trip as a solo traveller then I urge you to put that to the back of your mind and just book it! As soon as I arrived any nerves I had were gone. The staff and fellow travellers were amazing and you get to know each other really well. The experiences I had were out of this world and it's difficult to explain this to people back home who were not there. A truly special adventure and one I would whole-heartedly recommend to anyone. Do it. Book it. I ca promise you will not regret it.
