About Bactrac

Our Story

“Twenty years ago, our by-line “Touch the spirit of Africa” was the inspiration behind Bhejane Adventures. Those were the days of pack, fuel, pitch a tent, make-a-fire and make-a-plan! We had no business plan, or clever marketing strategies, just a desire to share adventures in Africa. Today we have 25 years of adventure travel experience, an incredible team.

Bactrac is an extension of the Bhejane Adventures brand with a renewed focus on Nature & Adventure Travel.
