The longer that you take to ascend then the higher the probability you have…

We set up Dragoland as a way for everyone who has booked a trip to connect with fellow overlanders on their, and other trips. Dragoland is a closed community group on Facebook which is administered by us here back at Dragoman HQ in Camp Green. You have to be a past Dragoman passenger or someone who is booked and travelling with us in the future to be able to join…
