One of the most amazing things I've ever done. Never had so much fun and I can't wait to go again!!

Sebastien B

The trip was well prepared, organized and going into some amazing places.

Michael F

What a great experience. I did and seen things I thought I would never be able to do. A lot things I never even thought about. Just great. Leaders were amazing , knowledgeable , patient and encouraging.

Gregory R

Exceeded my expectations in every way. You have a very hard working crew who are a credit to your organisation. I loved Vic Falls but I'm a cataractophile. Canoeing on the lower Zambezi and going into the Okavango also rate.

Lucy M

This was my first experience of travelling with Dragoman and every part of the trip exceeded my expectations. When we arrived at other campsites I felt that Florence outshone all the other trucks! I just wish it didn’t have to end.
