A place on one of their fantastic overlanding journeys, and have the experience of a lifetime! The total price includes all the accommodation, transport, use of the truck and its camping equipment, library, etc., camping meals, and all activities listed included.
Most of our trips will involve two payments:
1. The Trip Price, before departure.
2. The Kitty Payment, which is payable to your tour leader in cash when you join your trip, or in advance via bank transfer.
The Trip Price covers the cost of all operations, including the running of trucks, the office, and staff, as well as the provision of local guides throughout the world where needed, and local transport if for some reason trucks cant be used.
The kitty is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price, which covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities. The kitty system is unique to overlanding and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the Dragoman crew, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Kitty prices are estimated in USD and reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
Your kitty can be paid to your tour leader in a mixture of US Dollars cash and local currency, or via a bank transfer to Dragoman 3-4 weeks before the trip
