What's overlanding with Dragoman all about?

Overlanding is all about taking the road less travelled, seeing the real country as well as the highlights, and getting away from the tourist trail – Dragoman's mantra is “it's the journey, not just the destination”. Whichever trip you choose you are promised the adventure of a lifetime.

Inspirational Journeys

On every overland journey with Dragoman you’ll visit all the must-see highlights in the region - be it the iconic Taj Mahal, the incredible ruins of Machu Picchu, the mighty Victoria Falls, or the phenomenal Great Wall of China!

However, by travelling in one of our purpose-built iconic orange overland trucks, Dragoman will also get you off the beaten track and under the skin of the places you’re visiting. You may stay as guests of local Kyrgyz families in their yurts, trek through dense Ugandan jungle in search of endangered mountain gorillas, or meet inquisitive local villagers in the remote villages of West Africa - for many people these unique experiences are often the most memorable parts of their overland adventures and simply life-changing.

Dragoman has a proud history, standing at the forefront of the overlanding industry since the company's formation in 1981. Over the years they’ve grown steadily in size and now have a fleet of 27 overland trucks and 1 converted American School bus. They are still small enough to ensure that each Dragoman traveller has a unique, and life-changing experience and are proud to still be independently owned by the original founders and are just as passionate today about delivering an incredible overlanding experience.

Dragoman now offers overlanding adventures visiting 55 different countries across Africa, Asia and the  Americas and whether you have a couple of weeks for a short trip or time for an epic journey of several months  they are there to help.
