    5.0 - Excellent

    Tour is amazing and has been highly recommended to all my friends to do! Dragoman trucks are so well suited to the style of travel and has everything we needed on board. The food provided by the cooks was outstanding, a very indulgent 2 months of food! And the tour leader (Ben) was attentive to everyone's needs and even changed the itinerary slightly so everyone benefitted and had the best experience. Dragoman is a 10/10 tour group!

    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 Dragoman delves into countries that little bit deeper than other operators and really embraces the true adventure and culture of every country - canoeing and wild camping down the Zambezi was certainly an unforgettable experience. Dancing with a witch doctor, making jewellery with the San people, sleeping on a houseboat in the Okavanga Delta, tracking rhino on foot and hot air ballooning over the Serengeti are just a few of the other amazing activities available on this trip in addition to the fabulous wildlife on offer in an array of national parks across Africa. Thank you to everybody at Dragoman who helped conduct another 5/5 trip, and especially Ben who works the hardest of all and goes above and beyond to ensure every guest has the best possible trip.

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.
