Dragoman offers holidays that are authentic in nature, aiming to get you off the beaten track to really understand the places they travel to. Sometimes it can be spending time with the locals, going places others don’t, and just trying to have an authentic, local experience with an open mind. The company is based in the east of England, in rural Suffolk, and is proud to be independently owned. Dragoman has grown to be a leading specialist in overland travel to Africa, Asia and Latin America. They have come a long way since their first tour back in 1981. While growing in size over time, they are still small enough to ensure each Dragoman traveler has an incredible life changing adventure.

    Travelled from May 2019 to August 2019 with Dragoman. Our guides were Amber, Lewis, Will, Anja & Zulu. They were all amazing and made the trip extra special!

    We are very sorry to read of your disappointment with your trip to Africa but also rather confused. On checking our records we can see that you travelled with us back in 2014 but you have put your date of travel on this trip as 2017. Is it possible that you have confused this trip with another provider as it is so many years ago? If you read Dragoman's reviews you will see that they are incredibly positive and don't reflect your experience, even back then. Just to clarify that Dragoman has been in the same ownership for nearly 40 years and we are still based in Suffolk in the UK and we are very proud of this long heritage and the huge experience that comes with it. We are unsure why you would be under the impression that we had been "purchased" and would question your motivation in this review.

    Thank you for your comments regarding the kitty. As was explained in our trip notes, we operate a kitty system because it allows us to keep the price of our trips as low as possible. Whilst the trip price covers all of the set costs such as overheads, wages, insurance, truck running costs and maintenance, the kitty covers the accommodation, included activities and meals whilst camping. By separating these out we manage the on-road costs and our customers only pay the cost price for the accommodation, meals whilst camping and included activities. These funds also go directly back to the local community. On this trip much of the accommodation is in dorm accommodation or camping and many of the meals are prepared by the group. It is not more expensive for a couple to travel as the kitty cost is the same for everyone but if a couple wishes to upgrade to a double room there is generally an additional cost involved and unfortunately both Brazil and Patagonia are expensive destinations. We are convinced that a kitty system is the fairest and most economical way of pricing our trips but we are sorry to hear that you felt otherwise. Your comments have been passed on to our operations team for their attention so thank you for taking the time to let us have your feedback.
