    5.0 - Excellent

    This was one of the best trip I’ve ever been on! Great people, great guide, great driver and great chef! It exceeded expectations and everything was professionally run with plenty of activities to do. I just wish I could’ve carried on!

    5.0 - Excellent

    Ben was amazing! He kept everything running smooth and efficient and for a group of 20 that's difficult to do. On day 1 he made the whole group feel welcome and helped at every chance he could. Him and the team made the trip a great experience and I can't... 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 West Africa between Freetown and Accra (from Accra to Freetown City) 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.

  • Leslie3rd September 2018
    It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
