Accommodation and Campsites
Drifters have their own exclusive lodges that stretch along the Southern African sub-continent. They offer the perfect accommodation for everyone. The lodges are situated in the wilderness of the Wildcoast, sub-tropical paradises offering dreamy accommodation to busy, vibey cities. The comfortable accommodation allows you to have a relaxed, stress-free safari with plenty of time for you to explore your surroundings. Most of the lodges have swimming pools, bars and restaurants.
The equipment and tents for the camping areas are of the highest standard. They own their own retail stores so are able to keep abreast of the trends taking place in the market. They also develop and manufacture most of their equipment. The campsite has chairs, fold-out tables, tents (with built-in mosquito nets) and stretcher beds/cots. You are asked to bring your own sleeping bags, towels and pillows, although sleeping bags can be purchased on tour.

On camping tours you can enjoy tasty meals from local organic ingredients that are purchased from the communities. Meals are prepared and served at the truck with a special state-of-the-art kitchen.
