Postcards from Africa

Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us:


I travelled to Africa recently in August with On the go Tours. It was the Flamingo to the Falls tour. 27 day overland camping safari. I have to commend their tour guides, drivers and cooks as we had all local guides and crew. They were fantastic. We saw the big five in the first four days in the Serengeti. Our crew for me, made my trip. Especially Hesbon (our guide) James (our driver) and the lovely Ruben (our cook) who prepared the most delicious dinners. I met some wonderful people on the first part of my tour in which we have stayed in contact. It was such an amazing trip I am planning the next one to see the Gorillas. Gorillas in the Mist tour. I found the agents with whom I was in contact with prior to travelling were very efficient. My e-mails were answered promptly and professionally and any concerns were put to rest. Thank you On the Go for such a memorable trip to Africa. It has been my dream destination for over 10 years and you exceeded all my expectations.

   Flamingos to Falls - 27 days

Hi Charlie,
I just arrived back this morning from my trip. I must say it was one of the most amazing holidays I have been on. We seen all the big 5 and the crew were very good at spotting things that us amateurs couldn't. We did upgrade whenever we could. The best upgraded accommodation was at Lake Victoria what a beautiful place. My favourite part of the trip was the Masai Mara then Lake Nakuru. These places are where we seen the most animals.
The crew Frederick McKenzie (Guide) knew his job very well and was very knowledgeable, Peter Mganga (Cook) made some amazing food & Jacob Hinga (Driver) was an excellent driver and got us through some sticky situations they were all very friendly and will definitely recommend them again and will keep in touch with them all.

   Tanzania Wildlife Week - 7 days

Hey Kell,

Firstly I want to say and HUGE, HUGE, HUGE thank-you to yourself, Louise, Emma and everyone else who made my free trip possible. I have just returned from the Wildlife, Beach and Falls and I had the most incredible, fantastic and memorable trip! We only had a small group, but I have met some wonderful people a couple of whom I hope will be life long friends. I am actually catching up with these two for Rio Carnival next year and they are coming to visit me in Chicago!

I didn't catch the surnames of our guide, chef and driver, but I wish to pass on my thanks again and recommendations for all three. Collin our guide was fantastic! His knowledge was incredible. He was considerate to all travellers, answered all questions when and where possible and really went above and beyond!
Calisto our driver kept us amused and entertained at all times. Even when we where bogged in Mozambique you could still hear him chuckling away! Avil our chef made fantastic meals everyday and was always considerate to the vegetarian on board. I am sure I have returned a few kilos heavier, but it was well worth it!!
I honestly can not express enough how fantastic these three where.

Again THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for this opportunity. It was truly one of my most memorable holidays and I can not wait to return to Africa and explore it more. The team made us feel part of one big family and I can not stop talking about my trip. FANTASTIC!

Hi Kelly,

Just letting you know that I am really happy with my Kilimanjaro climb trip from the 1st-9th September. It was an exhilarating experience. My guide, Victor Martin, did an exceptional job and made sure I successfully conquered Kili in time to see a spectacular sunrise from the summit!!

Thank you so much to On The Go Tours and Zara for this incredible time in Africa.
