An African safari tops many travel wish lists. We're constantly thinking about one and looking ahead to when we can fit it into our plans. We figure we'll need a full itinerary that lasts at least a couple weeks in order to best experience a good slice of what Africa has to offer.
We have traveled with Backroads before (see links to stories below), and the active travel company offers exciting and carefully curated adventures that take a lot of the planning off your hands. The company has a selection of Africa trips to choose from, including safaris that just might work as part of your itinerary when you decide to pull the trigger on your ultimate African safari journey.
A Backroads trip means that you can bike, hike and view wildlife up close from private safari vehicles -- all while staying at some of Africa's most luxurious lodges. Here is why you should consider an active safari in Africa with Backroads.
Explorers will have access to diverse landscapes and cultures while staying in luxurious lodges and flying in private charter planes. On foot, on a bike and in safari vehicles, you'll visit private game reserves to see some of Africa's spectacular wildlife.
This vast continent is filled with natural wonders you'll find no place else. Consider some of these trips: Unravel the mysteries of Northern Africa as Backroads introduces you to the many delights of Morocco. Or experience the wonders of Sub-Saharan Africa on a multi-adventure through South Africa and Botswana or by foot through Namibia and Zimbabwe. Witnesses lions stalking the plains and elephants rumbling in the bush on a multi-sport adventure in Tanzania.
Backroads' private charter planes connect Africa's remote game reserves, maximizing your time exploring and minimizing complicated travel. There are no shuttles to the airport and no connections to make. The private flights give you the most direct route from one reserve to the next.
Top-notch hotels, camps and game lodges are all set in private reserves or national parks. This means you get up-close wildlife viewing opportunities led by the world's leading trackers and rangers. You'll arrive in style to these accommodations via private landing strips, and the food and service gives you a feeling of luxury while you are in the middle of the wilderness on your adventure.
These exclusive private game reserves allow visitors to encounter abundant wildlife any time of year. With unique opportunities to explore on foot and on bikes, it's an unrivaled immersive experience that Backroads has developed and perfected over two decades of offering active safari adventures in Africa.
