Travelling overland by a big orange and white truck isn't the only unique thing about Dragoman...we also love to flap!   Once you've flapped you'll never go back!

So to eliminate this issue we have our own unique washing and drying method. The process starts with buckets filled with liquid soap, disinfectant and clean water, culminating in a flap.     Just grab a couple of…

I had previously done all of my travelling independently so I was unsure of what to expect on my first Drago adventure. It turned out to be a really exciting experience.

Dara, our wanderlust-filled sales consultant got the opportunity to go on our Cairo to Khartoum (ZCK) trip earlier in May 2018. Wanting to visit Egypt ever since being a kid, Dara jumped at the chance to go on this overland adventure.
