    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!

    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 (28 days) 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.
