Lena "Ben did such a great job as a tour leader. He always went above and beyond, always giving us a little bit of background about a place. He was also the expert animal spotter of the group. He managed to spot a rhino's ear twitching with his eye, which was something I had to spend 5 minutes staring at with binoculars while someone pointed out exactly where it was. He was always willing to lend a hand..."

    Ben went over and beyond to not just find us activities to do but also teach us survival techniques and how to survive in the bush. Explaining in depth how to different species hunt and gather and making us feel safe the whole way.

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 Victoria Falls and Cape Town (from Victoria Falls 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.

    TourRadar’s website easily let me find smaller group tours for a more intimate experience. When I needed to change a tour date the agent reached by phone was efficient and delightful. I am suggesting TourRadar to all my value-conscious friends as the best travel resource I’ve found!
