All Drifters vehicles are designed in a manner that reflects our 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.

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 mis anything on the road or not have a view of the animals on the game drives.

We also have several 4 x 4 trucks we use to navigate the difficult roads on the Uganda Tour. These trucks offer guests the much needed power to drive through thick sand or mud often encountered on the tour.

EQUIPMENT : 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.

TENTS : During your African Adventure Drifters will provide you with all the camping equipment you will need. Tents, chairs, camp beds and much more. We use custom built safari dome tents on our camping tours that can comfortably accommodate two guests. The tents are made of durable canvas and have mosquito netting already build in.
Each guest will get their own camp bed for their tour which offers comfortable sleeping while camping in the middle of nowhere.
Please note that we do not provide sleeping bags and guests are required to bring their own.
