Some call it Adventure - we call it a way of life!

Bactrac is more than just a travel company and tour operator, it is a team of people passionate about sharing their Africa, with you. With well over twenty years experience in guided self drive adventures -  our directors, guides, chefs, crews and admin staff - are all personally involved in going the extra mile, to bring you an experience that is authentic if not, life changing and transformative.


Bactrac is very much a hands on team whose products are the result of years of refinement. How better to craft an African Safari than with the input of specialist guides who know the areas first hand and who traverse these places several times each year.  These are adventures that will blow your mind and make you feel as if you have travelled where no-one else has gone before.  The destinations are remote, the roads free of traffic, the landscapes pristine, untouched and full of game.   

Each tour comprises a team of two crew members led by specialist FGASA trained and accedited Guides who curate your experience. These trustworthy and professional individuals are one of the most important facets in all our adventures.  Simply put, having your own private guide means you are able to focus on the game drives and your interests while also being able to gain unique insights into local life and discuss a range of very diverse topics.  Our guides also have the 4x4 technical know-how in case it's needed, and are equipped with satellite phones to facilitate assistance even in the remotest regions, if necessary.


Food is always important while on safari and our meals are served under the stars and around the camp fire by a chef whose expertise in bush cuisine has been known to result in expanded waistlines. Catering for vegetarians is no problem and of course, traditional braaivleis and potjie are always firm favourites. Expect freshly baked pot bread, apple pie and even chocolate cake for social celebrations!
