    This trip was absolutely amazing! The best parts of it, in my view, were the safaris in Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Ben was super dedicated, looking after all the members of the group. It was clear how much effort he put into ensuring the group would have an unforgettable experience. It really felt like we were in safe and very capable hands!

    The trip was an amazing experience! In my view, the best parts of it were the safaris in Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and South Lwangua. I know it will be difficult to match that in any trip I take in the future. Ben and the rest of the crew did a fantastic job in making the trip as smooth and enjoyable as possible. It was really reassuring to know the group was in such capable hands!

    Ben was always there when we needed him and always there to advise. The best thing was his love and enthusiasm for Africa, the trip and the 'overland' life

In retrospect it might have better to cancel the trip and have free time / a tour of stone town. It's a minor criticism though and doesn't reflect on Ben's leadership. My lasting memories of the two weeks we spent in Africa with Ben are of incredible wildlife, fascinating local experiences and good chats and laughs.

    great experience , great leader and driver managing in trying conditions - very wet, muddy roads. Enjoyed the visits and staying in game parks. Lots of information , tips etc passed onto us . Felt safe all the time and Ben's love for his job was reflected in his attitude and willingness to share experiences ew animal sightings etc. Recommend to everyone

Questions & Answers

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

  • Are there any significant things that are not included in the tour price?

    You can identify all the not included activities in your trip notes.

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Africa East & South between Nairobi and Dar es Salaam (from Nairobi to Dar Es Salaam) 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.
