72 days with the Dragoman team in a fully fitted camping truck. We went to around 15 wildlife reserves of varying sizes in 9 countries. Most of the trip was camping with some upgrades available. On this particular trip a local cook is assigned and ours was fabulous as was our driver. The tour leaders were in this instance English and very experienced.

72 days with the Dragoman team in a fully fitted camping truck. We went to around 15 wildlife reserves of varying sizes in 9 countries. Most of the trip was camping with some upgrades available. On this particular trip a local cook is assigned and ours was fabulous as was our driver. The tour leaders were in this instance English and very experienced. Many of my friends questioned the safety of such a long trip through Africa but at no time did I feel unsafe probably because we were in a group when sightseeing or in cities. The tour went a a pace that I would prefer to be a bit slower in some areas especially with many days of up before sunrise to be in a park by daylight, but this is the nature of Overlanding and trips need to fit into a time and budget enticing to the most people. A few days on Zanzibar halfway throug the trip gave us time to energize.

Rating for tour operator:

Dragoman is an English company that has overland trucks on nearly all continents. It is one of the cheapest ways to travel in a group situation. I have been on 7 separate trips the shortest was 5 weeks the longest nearly 5 months. The tour leaders employed by Dragoman that I have had the pleasure to travel with have all been professional, fun loving and firendly. Herding a gaggle of tourists around the world making sure that they are fed and have a bed is not always easy but they have all managed well.
