Overview

Book

An overland trip with kids is an absolute delight as long as there is plenty to do for everyone. On this trip we combine the sites and sound of the cosmopolitan cities of Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Santiago with some of the icons of South America. So after the restaurants and highlife of BA it’s off to the world’s most spectacular waterfall, which you will see from both the Argentine and the Brazil sides.

A flight takes us to the far side of the country to the city of Cordoba, where you will meet the truck and head into the beautiful hills, or Cordillera, above Cordoba and into the ranch lands of the Gauchos. Here we stay at a beautiful Anglo Argentine Estancia, called Estancia Los Postreros. This is home to two colourful characters, Kevin and Louisa Begg, who will be our hosts on the very traditional working estancia, complete with over 150 horses and 600 head of prime Aberdeen Angus cattle.

We then head to the wine lands of Mendoza and cross the Andes, past Mt. Aconcagua, the highest in South America before descending into the plains of Chile and to the beach and surf of Valparaiso for R & R and seafood.

    Dragoman

    Dragoman has a proud history, standing at the forefront of the overlanding industry since the company's formation in 1981. Our first overlanding expedition to Nairobi and back set off in the summer of 1982, with our first trips to Asia following in 1984. In 1989, Dragoman launched operations in South America, and in 1994 (now with 13 trucks) we expanded out to Central America.

    2001 Dragoman took over the assets of Encounter Overland, and we have been proud overlanding partners with Intrepid since 2008. Dragoman became the owners of Imaginative Traveller in 2011, the same year that our first truck arrived in South East Asia. Finally, in 2013 we entered North America, and were the first ever overlanding company to visit Burma.

    In Business Since 2008
