Foreign Travel Advice

It is rare to find trips in east and southern Africa that really get you away from the "tourist" route, but this is one of them. Yes, no trip to East Africa is complete without Zanzibar and if you are heading to southern Africa, you cannot miss Victoria Falls. This trip does both and so much more. There's time to relax on the stunning beaches of Lake Malawi and to explore the bush in Zambia's South Luangwa NP, home to Africa's bush elephants and huge numbers of hippos and crocs. We also have the unique experience of exploring the backwaters of the Lower Zambezi by Canadian canoe. This is one of Africa's real wilderness experiences.

Visit to the incredible Victoria Falls

Day 1 - Zanzibar (28th June 2021)

Border Information: If joining at Zanzibar, you will most likely enter Tanzania from Zanzibar Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (IATA code: ZNZ).

There will be an informal meet-and-greet and orientation of Stone Town with our local Zanzibar guide at 6:00pm - please meet at the reception of the joining hotel at this time if you wish to take part in this orientation. Please note that you will not usually meet your regular crew tonight, as they will be arriving in Dar es Salaam this evening and will travel to Zanzibar with members of their previous group tomorrow.

Please note that the first 4 days of this section overlap with our "YND - Nairobi to Zanzibar" trip, so some of the group that come to Zanzibar will leave before we take the ferry to Dar es Salaam. This is because Zanzibar is part of both trips, so it means customers going all the way through do not follow our Zanzibar itinerary twice!

James W

The trip was enjoyable, a real experience and well led. There were some long and tiring days of travel but overall it was excellent fun.

Priscilla P

Enjoyed seeing the unexpected every other day abd moving and living in a truck and in a rustic way.

Dominic B

Every day was just exciting and amazing! The crew gave us lots of direction about what time we needed to be up/out for activities and always let us know what we needed to know for that certain area.

Nadia P

It was a really good trip.

Sarah R

Well looked after by professional crew. There were a lot of extremely long driving days just getting from A-B. Once the roads improve the travel time will reduce - to visit all those places (with probably little places in between to visit) this is unavoidable The best times were when we had activities morning and afternoon with some time to relax in the middle (like at South Lwanga NP and canoeing the Zambezi

Eline J

The canoeing trip over the Zambezi river and the two nights wildcamping were the highlight.

Kate N

We enjoyed the 2-day long canoeing the most and safari. Also the village tour at Kande Beach including the school and hospital.

Emma B

Enjoyed most kayaking on the Zambezi river, Vic falls and Zanzibar but would have liked a little bit more time to have less driving days maybe.

Erin S

Great experience. Had a very easy going and flexible tour guide, made things easy for us all.

Katherine H

I had a fantastic trip. The dragoman team were all exceptional.

Sarah C

The whole trip was brilliant! We did such a wife variety of different activities and all the Dragoman crew were super friendly and helpful. Canoeing and wild camping down the Lower Zambezi was an experience I will never forget.

Petrucia S

I have taken three trips with Dragoman and always a positive and excellent experience. I always consider Dragoman for my travels especially when overlanding. Excellent tour leaders, drivers and cooks, the itineraries are detailed and encompass so much and the experience itself driving in the truck is always unforgettable. Love the entire experience!

Leslie M

Next trip will be less driving. But apart from the driving an unforgettable trip! Amazing people, landscape and animals of course!

Antoinette V

Lovely cook, great fun to work with, food could have been a little lighter on carbs!

Jack F

It was fantastic! I had the time of my life!

Aase S

They all wanted to do the best for us passengers.

Elisabeth S

A great team! Helpful, funny, looking out for us.

Eva M

Charles is friendly and makes good food.

Zoe P

Charles and Denford were both fantastic and Charles really went the extra mile to make everyone very happy and took care of one of passengers when she was ill and couldn't come to Zanzibar.

Robin L

Charles is a fantastic cook and also acted as an additional co leader during the trip. I felt he went above a beyond to help everyone (including the leaders) on the trip.

Roelof O

Our cook Mash is amazing!

Shoshana G

On the whole I enjoyed my first experience overlanding with Dragoman.

Patricia P

All drivers on safaris knew exactly where to find the animals and were helpful and friendly.

Jana P

Brilliant cook, very helpful and nice.

Samantha S

Andy was a gentleman, good company, reassuring and safe. Tom took time to be interested in each traveller as individuals. Good fun to be around and always polite and helpful.
