Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

This was my second trip with Dragoman and exceeded even my highest expectations. Tour leader was a fantastic leader and a true expert for exploring Africa - his knowledge of the ecosystem and animals often exceeded the guides and his enthusiasm was very motivating. There was many highlights but in general the level of accommodation was much higher than i had anticipated. Gweta lodge was one of my favorite campsites. The house boat on the Okavango was a great touch, plus the walking with rhinos was an unforgettable experience.

Everything about this tour was flawless! Accommodations well located, safe and gorgeous; guide, Colleen Webster, informative, knowledgeable, helpful beyond expectations; and a general "good egg." Safaris were incredible with lots of animal sitings. What an adventure! Gate 1 is affordable, offers the BEST accommodations and guides. I've never been disappointed with Gate 1, but they REALLY OUTDID themselves with this lifetime experience! I would highly recommend this tour company and tour!

We had a wonderful family adventure arranged through Chris at Hands Up Holidays in our recent trip to Africa. We knew we wanted to accommodate the varying interests of our three children, aged 16, 13 and 11, with a travel experience that would expose them to a world outside of our normal, somewhat sheltered, life. Chris worked with us to find the best options within the short time that we had, and the volunteering in a small village in Zambia was the highlight of our two and a half week trip to Africa. The quality of the charity we worked with, The Butterfly Tree, was outstanding and inspiring. In addition, after discussion of our preferences and budget, the choices for accommodation and safari that Chris chose for us were a perfect fit. Thank you for such an amazing travel experience that we will always cherish.

We stayed at Mara Expedition camp in mid Feb 2018 after having to be switched from our original planned location at Mara Plains Camp due to a lioness and her cubs denning under our reserved tent! However we loved Mara Expedition and the staff and food and rustic luxury were wonderful. We had the BEST guide (Kevin) and simply sensational sightings literally from the drive in from the airstrip until the last moment of our transition day. Can not recommend highly enough. Just after our stay the torrential Mara rains and flooding started and the camp was washed away as it sits on the bank of the Ntiakntiak river. But they are rebuilding and planning on reopening shortly.

Our trip was fantastic. Much more than we ever expected. The Capetown leg you recommended was unbelievable. It was made especially great by our guide Renee. She was always on-time, knowledgeable, exceedingly friendly, and had many great recommendations and suggestions. The guides were excellent and the game drives we went on were magical. We saw all of the big five and had some great adventures * Victoria Falls was mostly dry but that was because of the dry season. Here, again, the guide was always prompt and informed. We did some walking around in Livingstone and drank in the culture. All the transfers we on time, all of the guides were excellent, and there wasn't a single glitch. Kudos. Obviously this tour was not your "sit in a bus and take in the scenery" type tour. It was exactly what we wanted.
