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.
We offer a wide range of Adventure Safari Tours throughout Southern and East Africa with regular scheduled departures throughout the year.
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.
All our tours use custom-built safari trucks that take a maximum of 16 passengers. The vehicles offers guests comfort and reliability with custom features like a fold-out kitchen, onboard fridge, individual client lockers and big windows that offer panoramic views.
Drifters Adventure Tours has a proud history of conservation that spans over decades. Our commitment to sustainability is based on international guidelines and ensures that our businesses activities and services do not negatively impact the environment and the interests of our communities therein. We actively commit to a range of philanthropic activities that ensure the well being of Africa’s natural and cultural resources. This policy and guide has been designed to inspire and help lead us through different sustainability objectives within our operations and routines.
Being South African-owned and based, Drifters Adventure Tours has a company registered in every country in which we operate and we employ large numbers of local people in all those countries. Clients can therefore feel assured that a percentage of their tour fee is in fact going directly to all those local communities. Drifters Adventure Tours are also members of all major tourist associations and authorities, and are licensed and insured to operate throughout the region, thus ensuring accountability and providing clients with security and peace of mind.
Drifters Adventure Tours only employ the best full-time guides to run our safari tours. Our staff are dedicated, experienced, adventurous and know how to have a good time. Guiding for Drifters Adventure Tours is an extremely rewarding and challenging experience – which means that our guides stay with us for a long time – they are part of the family, and they live the ethos of Drifters Adventure Tours.
