Foreign Travel Advice

If you have kids aged from 7 to 17, this is the family adventure holiday that you cannot miss. The amazement and pure joy in their faces when you spend two nights camping on the plains of the Serengeti or spotting a rhino at the Ngorongoro Crater will be something you never forget as a parent. This trip is ideal for families, with wild camping, beautiful hotels and so much wildlife. Add to this the cultures of the Massai and walking through the lands of the Irente peoples in the Usambara Mountains and you have a heck of an adventure. Then there is the balance, the beautiful beach hotels on the white sands of the Indian Ocean on Zanzibar and exploring the night food market and hotel bars of Stone Town. This is a trip that you and your children will never forget.

Fantastic cooking from our cook - healthy, tasty - could not fault it.

Mark G

Our cook was also wonderful. The cook's food was simple, but delicious.

Catherine F

The trip was brilliant for both of us, giving a real insight into the Africa while being safe and well organised.

Charlotte S

Overall we loved the trip. Wildlife viewing on the Safari's was excellent. It was also good to see some less visited places such as Lushoto and to enjoy some beach time.

Belinda N

I really enjoyed the variety of things on the trip. The game viewing was a highlight for our family

Alexander D

Very exciting trip, well constructed - full on but otherwise we would not have done so much cool stuff!

Charlotte A

The trip was well organized, friendly and included a good variety of experiences. It was easy going yet very on top of getting places on time in an organized fashion.

David E

Well organised, good overall structure for families, good use of local staff and guides

Jason B

This tour was everything we hoped for. It had a great blend of wildlife experiences, visiting local villages, exercise, quality food & relaxing by the beach near the end. We felt like one big family & all enjoyed our time spent with the other families on tour.

This was our third travel experience with Dragoman, and we were once again very satisfied. This trip was a gift to our three children and four grandchildren. Our hope was to introduce them to international travel and let them experience a part of the world much different than their own here in the U.S. We watched with delight as they embraced the travel, meeting and interacting with a family from another country, eating new foods, seeing wonderful new sights, learning to manage their affairs in campsites, and generally experiencing the differences and similarities of other cultures. We told our kids and grandkids that we were spending their inheritance on this trip, and as it turns out, our travel experience was, itself, a worthy inheritance.
