Discover who we are and what we do
Imaginative Traveller is an independently owned travel company based in Debenham, in rural Suffolk. Our philosophy is based on a love of travel and exploration and a desire to retain the spirit that we established when we were founded in 1991. We’ve always been known for innovative and inspiring trips, and we understand that everyone’s wanderlust gene is different. Some of us love mountains, others deserts, some the jungle, and some the beach... But we all share the same thing – a curiosity to go out into the world and share experiences.
We are different to most other travel companies. We are based on a farm in Suffolk surrounded by beautiful fields, and have as many dogs as humans in our office for starters!
Our sales consultants are real travellers - ex tour leaders, aid workers, photographers, foodies and musicians. Individuals obsessed with travel and adventure, not hard-sell reservation agents.
We believe that travel should be stimulating, and give you an authentic experience of a destination. We want our travellers to relish the amazing diversity of countries and cultures that the world has to offer through our incredible and varied repertoire of worldwide adventures. Our small, intimate groups are an international mix of like-minded travellers who share our commitment to sustainable tourism.
Book and Travel with Confidence
We have cast-iron financial protection through ABTOT and the strength of our trade organisations ABTA and AITO behind us. We have coupled this with a Traveller’s Confidence Toolkit which includes flexible deposits, a later balance due date and flexible no transfer charges that will ensure you can make a booking with complete confidence and transfer your trip easily. We review our health and safety procedures with all our suppliers to ensure that we are able to operate safely and the safety and wellbeing of our travellers, leaders, crew, staff and suppliers is our top priority.
Our sister company: Dragoman Overland
As well as the small group tours and tailor-made adventures offered by Imaginative Traveller, we also operate overland expeditions in Africa, Asia, and the Americas through our sister company, Dragoman Overland.
Overlanding is all about getting off the beaten trail. Travelling in one of Dragoman’s purpose-built overland trucks, you’ll be able to reach places other forms of transport can’t, and will have encounters with local communities that you won’t find with other types of group travel.
Dragoman has stood at the forefront of the overlanding industry for nearly 40 years. We’re proud to still be independently owned by the original founders, who are just as passionate today about overland travel as they were in 1981.
