Drifters offer safari tours in state of the art vehicles throughout Southern and East Africa. All Drifters vehicles are designed in a manner that reflects our 3 decades of experience in the safari industry. Passenger cabin, body work and storage areas are all custom-built to our specifications, taking passenger safety, comfort and reliability into account. All vehicles are inspected, serviced and completely re-supplied before each tour departure.

Our fleet is made up out of 2 x 4 vehicles and a range of 4 x 4 vehicles used in Botswana and Uganda.

2 x 4 Trucks

Drifters has a fleet of custom built Safari Trucks that are all purpose build to travel through Africa. The trucks all have forward facing seats that ensure a comfortable ride and loads of leg room. The seats are also adjustable should you wish to have an afternoon siesta.

The big windows on the side and the windscreen ensure that everybody in the truck has a clear view of the surrounding area which means you will not miss anything on the road or not have a view of the animals on the game drives.

All the Drifters trucks come standard with a build in stainless steel kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with all the cutlery and crockery needed on tour as well as:
– 400 L fresh water tank
– Hygienic washing facilities
– Gas cookers
– An onboard fridge

The trucks are also equipped with Individual Lockers for guests to store their bags and belongings while on tour. The Locker dimensions are 400mm x 600mm x 900mm which means guests can easily fit a backpacks or barrel bag in the locker.

The trucks also offer convenient overhead storage for smaller day packs.

4 x 4 Truck

The custom built 4 x 4 is one of a kind and will offer the reliable strength needed on the roads in Uganda but with improved comforts for guests.
Key features include
– Spacious adjustable seats
– Individual luggage lockers
– Built in stainless steel kitchen
– Individual charging facilities
– Spacious windows for panoramic views
– 17 Seats for increased passenger numbers

The new 4 x 4 includes similar features to our normal vehicles but is the beginning of a new era for tours in Uganda and sets the trend for vehicles travelling on the rugged conditions in Uganda.
