We're excited to release our very first video to come from our Africa Active Safaris. Our goal in designing these trips was to experience the very best of a classic African safari - the wildlife, the landscapes, the incredible lodges - and take it to a whole new level with the ACTIVE component Backroads is so well-known for. The result has been a magical experience that takes our guests beyond a sight-seeing tour to a more immersive, experiential and rewarding active journey. We hope this video captures just a bit of this magic!
Namibia and Zimbabwe offer stunning contrasts. Soaring private flights carry us to remote corners of a dramatically beautiful and captivating landscape where we explore by foot, boat and open-air safari vehicles. From flame-colored dunes to expansive plains to sky-filling sunsets and mist-shrouded Victoria Falls. Mighty elephants emerge from desert hideaways and luxurious retreats nestle amid raw nature, under a nightly blanket of shimmering stars. Welcome to a world and travel experience that will stay with you for a lifetime.
