The original overland experience

Dragoman has almost 30 years in adventure travel, running overland trips across Africa, Asia, North and South America. Overland always has been the best way to truly experience a region at a grass routes level. Groups are usually a mix of sexes, nationalities and come from all walks of life but share the common desire to explore.

Their ethos has always been the same since their conception: to get further off the beaten track to experience a destination at a grass routes level. So whether you want a quick fix of adventure or have months to travel across a whole continent Dragoman should have a trip to inspire you.

It's as much the journey, as the destinations that thrills Dragoman. They've pioneered more routes then any other adventure travel operator with an administration, training and maintenance base in Suffolk, UK. They're renowned for their trips and commitment to responsible tourism, benefiting the local people of the countries they visit.

Where they go

Asia, Africa & South America

What they specialise in

On the road with Dragoman Overland.

Overland trips are designed to offer freedom and flexibility. There's a route to follow rather than a strict hour-by-hour itinerary. They stay in family run hotels, local campsites and use cooks in East and Southern Africa so clients get a real taste of traditional culinary delights at meal times. Basically, overlanding is a really fun and social way to travel, overland tours are perhaps the best way to get really close to local cultures.

Who they are for

Most travellers are between 18 and 40 and a "travel overland" attitude is more important than age. Groups are usually a mix of sexes, nationalities and come from all walks of life.

They believe overlanding is the most authentic and accessible way of experiencing new countries, their people and cultures.
