Overlanding is the only way to see East and Southern Africa! Our popular Nile Route, taking you on the epic overland journey between Ethiopia's historic city of Gondar and Cape Town at the continent's southern tip, will give you an unparalleled insight into this amazing continent. Dragoman have been leading the way in African overland expeditions since 1981, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. With Dragoman you will visit the wonders of Ethiopia such as the Temples of Axum, the rock churches of Lalibela, and trek in the spectacular Simien Mountains. You will journey through the remote tribal lands of Ethiopia's Omo Valley, and head out on safari in East Africa's great game parks such as the Serengeti, Maasai Mara, South Luangwa and Etosha. You will track mountain gorillas on foot in Rwanda, as well as chimpanzees in Uganda and rhinos in Zimbabwe! You'll paddle canoes on the Lower Zambezi and mokoros through Botswana's Okavango Delta, see the mighty Victoria Falls, and get to relax on the stunning beaches of Zanzibar and Lake Malawi. You'll enjoy the unbelievable scenery of Namibia, including its phenomenal Fish River Canyon and incredible sand dunes at Sesriem. And you'll have the chance to get the adrenaline pumping in Uganda's Jinja, Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls and on the Skeleton Coast at Swakopmund with a plethora of optional outdoor activities. An amazing adventure taking in some of the best that East and Southern Africa has to offer - join us for this wonderful African journey!

  • Day 1 Gondar

    Border Information: if joining in Gondar, you will most likely enter Ethiopia at Gondar Atse Tewodros Airport (IATA code: GDQ). There will be a group meeting at the joining hotel at 6:00pm. Please look out for a note from your tour leader at the reception when you arrive giving more details about this important meeting. If you are continuing to Kenya or beyond, your leader will need to check the validity dates of your Ethiopian visa. Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Gondar before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Gondar.

    Activities(Included)
    Learn all about medieval Ethiopia on a half-day guided tour of the castles, churches and baths of Gondar

    Activities(Optional)
    Enjoy a tour of the local Dashen brewery in Gondar - Cost: USD 8

  • Day 2 Gondar

    Today, we will have an included half day guided tour of the historical sites of Gondar, including Gondar Castle, the King Fasilades' Baths and the Debre Birhan Selassie church.  In Gondar we will stay in a comfortable hotel with good facilities.

  • Day 3 to 5 Simien Mountains National Park

    Today marks the start of our 3-day excursion into the Simien Mountains National Park. We will first drive to Debark, where we will have a briefing from our local mountain guide explaining the various trekking options we will have during our excursion, before heading into the National Park. Estimated Drive Time - 3-5 hours (please note that all drive times given here are the approximate number of hours that the truck will be in motion only, and does not include any time taken for coffee or lunch stops, border crossings, photo stops, activities en route, comfort breaks, shopping stops, toilet stops, etc. The times given are approximate estimates only and whilst given with the best of intentions, the drive times are heavily dependent on traffic, road conditions, weather, police roadblocks, and many other factors - flexibility is essential on any overland trip!). The area is home to some of Africa's most jaw-dropping mountain scenery and is a great opportunity to enjoy some incredibly beautiful treks and breathtaking views! The area is also home many indigenous animals, and during our time here we hope to spot Lammargeyer vultures, geladas, Walia ibex, and (if we are very lucky) klipspringers and Ethiopian wolves. We will spend 3 nights in the incredible Simien Mountains National Park. On each day we aim to provide an option for a long trek (of 5-8 hours), a short trek (2-5 hours) or no trekking. On our first day, we aim to wild camp at the area of Sankaber. On our second and third days, we aim to wild camp at the area of Chenek (underneath Ras Bwahit, the second-highest mountain in the Simiens, which we hope to get the opportunity to summit). Please note that we must keep a flexible itinerary in the Simien Mountains, as our options will largely be determined by the weather.  Please also note that the camping areas in the national park are very basic, and are essentially wild camps with long drop toilets. Please also note that the food and provisions available in Debark and the National Park are very limited, and it is also likely to be very cold at night (often dropping below freezing), so please be prepared!

    Activities(Included)
    Guided treks in the Simien Mountains National Park

  • Day 6 Debark

    Today is our final day in the Simien Mountains National Park, and we make our way back to Debark for the night. In Debark we will stay in a basic local hotel.

  • Day 7 Axum

    Leaving Debark behind us, we continue our journey with a full day of driving through the foothills of the Simien Mountains to reach the ancient town of Axum in the far north of Ethiopia. The roads here are very tough, but we are rewarded with more truly breathtaking scenery! In Axum we will stay in a basic hotel. Estimated Drive Time - 8 hours (please note that all drive times given here are approximate estimates only and are given with the best intentions - however please be aware that the drive times are heavily dependent on traffic, road conditions, weather, police roadblocks, and many other factors - flexibility is essential on any overland trip!).
