Keith Flexmore Adams (born 8 September 1926 in Tasmania), is an Australian adventurer and filmmaker.

In 1955, Adams produced an amateur film, Northern Safari, in which he, his wife Audrey, his sister Margaret and their fox terrier Tiger travelled in an old Buick from their home in Perth, Western Australia across the Gibson Desert to the Gulf of Carpentaria. Adams predated by several decades such Australian adventurers such as Les Hiddins (The Bush Tucker Man), Paul Hogan's fictional Crocodile Dundee and Steve Irwin. Adams presented his film throughout Australian and several overseas countries.

Adams' autobiography, Crocodile Safari Man: My Tasmanian Childhood in the Great Depression & 50 Years of Desert Safaris to the Gulf of Carpentaria 1949 – 1999 (ISBN 9781875998821) was published in 2000.
