    Written on September 12, 2018
    5.0 - Excellent

    The trip itself was just absolutely stunning! I have never seen so many wild animals and such beautiful landscapes before. Also the african culture and the way the africans live is an inspiration no one should miss. My tourleader Ben was an absolute legend. Never had any issues with booking accommodation our activities. He was always there for me and my group and he could sort literary everything out. He is a hard worker but at the same time one of the funniest and kindest guys I have ever met! Same goes to my co-leader and driver Emma, who was always up for a good story. All in all the trip can only be described as the best time of my life!

    If you’re looking to get off the beaten track then Dragoman is definitely the tour operator for you! Even from the start of the booking process the agents were always there to help out on the phones or via email if you had any questions (so much so that I ended up going to Cape Town earlier as per there guidance, and was such a good bit of guidance as was incredible). From the welcome meeting Ben showed that he lived and breathed Dragoman. The passion and enthusiasm he showed throughout our journey, made every day exciting (somehow even a big truck day seemed like an adventure). He was so knowledgeable and always had time to answer questions, no matter what time of the day it was! PMA was always high on his agenda and this shone through onto all passengers meaning that every day everyone was so excitied and buzzing for each day! He was informative and always gave you the tools to know what was possible to do in each destination, but not in a handholding way like you might get with other tour operators! Ben was a crucial part of the trip and I think he was one of the main reasons that I ended up adding an extra 17 days onto my journey with Dragoman as I had the best adventure of my life so far! Bens an absolute credit to Dragoman and couldn’t rate him highly enough! On a side note I went to Africa thinking I would lose weight (oh how wrong I was) because the cooks (The king/Mash LEGENDS) would cook an absolute storm up every day....who thinks of cooking a lasagne on hot coals in the middle of a bush camp on the Zambezi?!?! Already looking forward to my next adventure with Dragoman and couldn’t thank Ben, Emma, Kingston, Sampson and Mash enough for making it such a good journey!! Until next time!!

    What an adventure! If you’re someone that wants to get off the beaten track and really get to the depths of different countries and see things that no other tour operators are doing, Dragoman is the one for you! From the start the booking process was easy, agents always available if I needed to call them to ask questions and nothing was too much hassle. Even from the start I got advice, letting me know how much there is to do in Cape Town (which actually made me change my flights and decide to go out earlier). From the welcome meeting you could tell that Ben lived and breathed Dragoman. The passion and enthusiasm he gave from the offset made you so excited about each and every day (even when he had just driven massive days). He was knowledgable about every aspect and if you needed anything he was always there to help out. He always gave me the tools to know what was available in each destination and what we could do but in a way which wasn’t handholding, which I feel you get from other tour operators. We were always informed in the evening what was happening the day after so we were all clear what time we had to be up for a drive or activity. PMA was always high and couldn’t of asked for a safer, more energised and organised tour leader! I think Ben was one of the reasons I ended up extending my trip up to Zanzibar because I was having such an incredible time and he was at the core of that! On a side note if you’re going to Africa thinking you’ll lose weight (not gunna lie I thought I was going to) then please know that this is not the case and the cooks on my trips (The King and Mash) were absolutely incredible and they whip up an absolute storm for every single meal.......like who thinks bush camping, let’s make a lasagne?!?! Already looking forward to booking my next adventure with Dragoman, and can see why people keep going back for more! Thanks Ben and Dragoman, it was an adventure of a lifetime!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Africa East & South between Dar es Salaam and Cape Town (from Dar Es Salaam to Cape Town) is a group fund for this tour. The group fund pays for camping, hotels, food while camping, activities the group does as a whole (based on the itinerary mentioned above and in the brochure).

    The Kitty allows the group to be flexible as the hotels and campsites are not pre booked and booked by the crew while travelling which makes the whole itinerary more adabtable than the traditional tours. Sometimes you can stay an extra night at one location due to a special activity happening at the location, based on the groups wishes. All of these costs are paid at cost price and Dragoman makes no money out of it. Therefore, if money is left over in the Kitty after the tour, it will be paid back to the group members.
