inthelooptravel.com - By John Roberts An African safari tops many travel wish lists. We're constantly thinking about one and working out when we can fit it into our plans. We figure we need at least to work on a full itinerary that lasts at least 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.
