Namibia & Botswana Wanderer

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.

Namibia & Botswana Wanderer

This was my third trip with Dragoman and all have been excellent. We had a good team with a good mix genders, nations, and ages. I particularly appreciate this having seen some of the other overland companies. Dragoman trips seem to have a good balance of fun and focus on the local culture and environment. You also seem to have the best (from what I've seen) truck set-up and trip culture. Read more

South Africa Highlights & Safari

For someone who usually plans every detail of my travels...going on a group tour was not something I relished. Plus, I knew that Smartours was considered a “budget” travel company, so my expectations weren’t that high. However, other than a few minor inconveniences, this trip exceeded my expectations. The magical African landscapes and its kind, welcoming people made this adventure one of the best vacations I’ve been on. Pros: Well-paced itinerary that gave us the opportunity for some free time to plan our own activities, smallish group (25) of lovely, considerate, fellow travelers (we were in the minority of “younger” folks and we are in our 50s), excellent included tours, mostly lovely hotels/lodges, amazing breakfasts/dinners, included porter services at all stops, Smartours CEO personally responded quickly to our inquiry regarding booking cost concern, and our delightful and attentive guide Jonathan. Cons: 6 hour scheduled layover, most uncomfortable 14+ hour flight ever via South African Airways, trip extension Vic Falls guide was very personable, but not very attentive, Smartours sends trip info only 2 weeks prior to departure (would love to have had this info sooner), several of the optional tours were mediocre. But honestly...if you’re a frequent traveler...these concerns are pretty minor. I will definitely be recommending the South Africa Tour to friends for value/quality and hope that ST keeps its word about limiting group sizes to under 25. I will definitely use them again in the future! Read more
