Sarah "Another amazing trip with Dragoman and Ben!! From start to finish this tour exceeded all expectations and it is certainly the best trip I have ever done. Ben was our leader and how he maintained such enthusiasm and dedication for 52days is inspiring - such a hard worker and an absolute asset to Dragoman. Plus he will wow you with his fire skills and survival skills as an added bonus! I love that D..."

    I spent 72 days on this trip and experienced the diversity of African landscapes and cultures. Obviously the large mammals attract a lot of attention however from my point of view the birds were exceptional as was the flora and geology. Dragoman is unique... Read more

    The trip has good and less good sides. We covered a lot of ground and did see a lot of Africa, and we did go to places which are really difficult to get to and are well off the beaten track. We did see the big five and a lot of other wild animals. Ben was... Read more

    The trip was great and it was a good way to see a little bit of Africa. Some of the days were difficult, mostly because of long driving days and few resting days. It would also have been interesting to learn more about the countries we were driving through.... Read more

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 Nairobi and Cape Town (from Nairobi 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.
