Tourvest Destination Management, trading as Pure-Travel, has grown its GSA division following its appointment as the General Sales Agent for Drifters Adventure Tours in Africa, with immediate effect.

“We are very excited to introduce the Drifters product portfolio to the South African market. As we navigate COVID-19 times, we saw an opportunity to offer the South African client an incredible adventure; it will take them to the most unique locations, off-the-beaten-track, filled with unforgettable experiences and… at very affordable South African rand rates,” said Illana Pereira, TDM Managing Director: Sports & Leisure.

Drifters, which offers adventure safaris throughout southern and East Africa – was founded in 1983, and today forms part of the Tourvest portfolio.

“Drifters offers a selection of camping, accommodated and private tours that endeavour to show clients the most of what the continent has to offer, with a good balance between wildlife, culture, adventure and scenic beauty. With a proud history of conservation that spans over three decades, our approach is to run tours in a safe and sustainable manner that is green to the core, not only benefits the environment and local communities but also our guests on tour, giving them a unique and sustainable experience,” said Christiaan Steyn, Drifters General Manager.

Pure-Travel will feature the following itineraries for sale;

  • Kruger Park Accommodated Safari – 5 days
  • Wild Namibia Adventure Camping Safari – 11 days
  • Botswana Wildlife Safari Camping Tour – 9 days
  • Zimbabwe Explorer Camping Tour – 6 days
  • Kenya & Tanzania Wildlife Safari Camping Tour – 12 days
  • Uganda Wildlife Camping Safari with Gorilla Trekking – 13 days

Tourvest Destination Management – with offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, as well as key tourism cities in Africa – is not new to the leisure market in South Africa and has long since provided travel solutions to both inbound and outbound individual travellers as well as supporting the retail travel trade and corporate travellers.

With the addition of Drifters into the Pure-Travel portfolio, Tourvest Destination Management had the ability to leverage 35 years of experience and expertise within these segments, added Pereira.
