It is an iconic journey that allows us to explore Amboseli, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in Kenya and Tanzania as well as searching for the big game of South Luangwa national park in Zambia. Then for sheer natural wilderness and wildlife, this trip takes in the beauty of the Lower Zambezi area which we explore by canoe.

If its beaches and relaxation you're after we also visit both the white sands of Zanzibar and the stunning beaches of Lake Malawi.

Robin L

The Vic Falls to Nairobi leg is excellent.

Marlieke D

Would have liked some more time in Malawi, for example one extra day at the lake of Malawi, otherwise a good trip.

Erica C

My third trip and, as always, an incredible experience.

Susan I

I enjoyed most of the trip, although some days were long, we had plenty of stops. Was great having a cook, nobody became ill from eating street food they were not used to. though some days were long

Robert D

I really enjoyed canoeing on the Zambezi and Serengeti

Gayle H

I loved canoeing on the Zambezi river

Rosanne R

My trip was amazing! I think Dragoman is a really good company, as the client seems to be more important than anything.

Elizabeth B

It was our first Dragoman experience, we didn't know what to expect, but loved it.

Sarah S

A great company from start to finish and I can't wait to start planning my next journey. Undoubtedly the Serengeti trip was by far my highlight, especially the hot air balloon ride. A nice addition to this was also Tarangire - i had never heard of this park before and am aware most tour groups don't go here but it is a superb park and many of us commented that it was one of our favorites due to the abundance of animals and low number of tourists. Canoeing down the Zambezi was unforgettable - a very unique and true adventure moment. Lake Malawi and Zanzibar was also very special.

Debra H

Loved the game drives & the canoe trip down the Zambezi river

Maria D

I loved Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. And the safari in South Luangwa was something special. I think the guides on both safaris were excellent! The experience of camping in an open camp in Serengeti and Ngorongoro was beyond belief! And the camp in South Luangwa was really excellent!

christopher g

The Game drives were spectacular
