The majority of people will be more than suited to overlanding trips. The most important thing is coming out with the right attitude, an open mind, and a desire to participate fully in the trip. There a many factors to take into account when assessing your suitability, such as weather conditions, activities and excursions, altitude, and local diet.
Whilst we don’t want to put anyone off experiencing one a overland adventures, Tour Amigo and Dragoman ask that you carefully read through the notes for the trip you have selected and realistically self-assess your ability to complete the itinerary as described.
All travellers are required to carry their own bag and lift it into storage areas or into hotels, and to be able to manage the 2-foot-high step on and off our overland trucks.
It is extremely rare to have to refuse anyone a space for medical reasons. However, for the benefit of yourself and your fellow travellers, it is vital that you inform Dragoman about any pre-existing medical conditions that you have and any medication that you’re currently taking so in the unlikely event of a medical emergency they'll be able to provide you with as much assistance as possible. Please also remember to declare any pre-existing medical issues to your travel insurance company when you purchase the policy, as failure to do so may invalidate your insurance and any associated claim.
And remember, a positive attitude and an open mind are just as important as your physical ability! All trips require some level of active participation from all group members, and overlanding really does exemplify the phrase ‘you get out what you put in'.
