What we

Offer

Drifters Adventure Tours is a South African based tour operator established in 1983. We offer adventure safari tours throughout Southern and East Africa to small groups of international travellers who want to experience Africa in a unique way. Our tours attract guests from all ages travelling alone or together that want to explore, discover and immerse themselves in the beauty, culture and history of Africa.

Adventure safari tours in unique destinations

We offer a wide range of Adventure Safari Tours throughout Southern and East Africa with regular scheduled departures throughout the year.

Camping, accommodated and private tours

All of our tours are inclined toward the interesting and often unique fauna and flora of Africa and for this reason we often leave the beaten track to explore remote areas where little or no familiar infrastructure exists. In these areas we generally camp, but all equipment is supplied, and no previous experience is necessary.

Custom-built

Safari Trucks

We had an unforgettable tour! The lodges were all fantastic with very nice, friendly people. We saw so much on the game drives, thanks to the game driver/guide Mac! Because of all these people and the nature, Drifters and Botswana have taken a big place in our hearts!
