    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... Show 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... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Africa East & South between Nairobi and Cape Town (from Cape Town to Nairobi) 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.
