Choose Your Own Safari (The Online Tool)

If you were a fan of choose-your-own-adventure books as a child, you'll like this new interactive website from Bushtracks Expeditions.

The online tool helps you create your own African expedition with just a few clicks. You can start from scratch and shape every aspect of the trip, customize a preexisting option, or use the Safari Wizard, which will design an itinerary based on your answers to a few questions.

The first option is the best bet for adventurous travelers who want a say in even the smallest details. Users start by choosing an arrival date, arrival destination, hotel and the number of people on the trip. From there, you can select the amount of time you want to spend in each place and your activities. For instance, you may spend three days in South Africa diving with great white sharks, whale watching and touring Cape Town before flying to Kenya for a safari in the world-famous Maasai Mara. This option will give you the most control over how your time and money are spent.

Even if you're not headed out on safari any time soon, the tool will give you a hands-on idea of Africa's incredible travel possibilities.
