WHAT OUR PASSENGERS SAY

Overall I am very impressed with how virtually every aspect of the trip was well thought out and planned. Health and security policies - like very frequent hand cleaning and sanitizing are a good example. This is no doubt due to your careful attention to years of experience. I realize external circumstances do change some plans. Really enjoyed the interpretive walks like the spice plantation in Zanzibar and forest walks in Okavango Delta, and the San village. The Great Falls of the Zambezi (aka. Victoria Falls). All the drives, cruises, and walks to see animals, especially in South Luwanga and Etosha parks. The great views of the planets and stars - especially stars never seen at home. The fabulous easily seen geology of Namibia.- dunes, pans, fossils canyons, layered, sharp or smoothly rounded peaks, vast plains. Also the rift valley with a great “finger shaped “ Lake Malawi. The canoe and mokoro trips. San rock-art and rhino hikes with a most excellent guide in Matobo Park. The great beobab trees. A camp very near the Orange River after 11 days of (beautiful) desert.

The guide Ian at Bulawayo and Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe was excellent - keep him around. The cook on this tour - Kingstone, was exceptional. He catered very very well for vegetarians. He is such an asset to Dragoman.
