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


Hi Sarah, I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time I had and to say thank you for all your help and advise beforehand! As an individual traveller I was put at ease by the fantastic, professional and friendly crew. I can honesty say it was the best holiday I have ever had!

   Wildlife Beach & Falls - 15 days

Morning Charlie,
Just wanted to comment on the truly amazing trip I had. Everything was so well organised and everybody was committed to working together to make sure it was a memorable trek. I chose to have a porter who couldn't be faulted and I would definitely recommend this service.
The time with the gorillas was beyond belief. They were so close and relaxed but one roar and you were reminded who was in charge.
Thanks Charlie, another striking trip to savour over.

   Gorillas in the Mist - 6 days

Hi Charlie,

I am pleased to say that I myself and my wife both thoroughly enjoyed our safari trip with On The Go to Kenya and Tanzania. Overall, the trip was very well organized. We did see a lot of interesting animals and birds in the four national parks/reserves that we visited. These were the Masai Mara, the Lake Nakuru National Park, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.
Of the Kenyan staff, our cook was the best. He was always cheerful and he always managed to produce very good meals under rather primitive conditions. Also, he did this in such a clean manner that no one in our group of 15 got any stomach upsets during the safari trip.

   Safari Safari - 11 days

Dear On the Go,
After finding out about your tours through a cousin of mine we travel from Cape Town to the Falls on your 22 days tour.
The tour guide was well informed and listened to our every need. The truck was well equipped and the tents and sleeping mats were awesome. The trip itself was well planned and amazing we could not have asked for a better time. We felt safe and cared for and really loved every minute of it. We want to come back again and did not want to leave. The highlights were many but the environment and plethora of animals was second to none. We have travelled with various other travel companies and would choose On the Go again.

   Cape to Falls - 22 days

Hi Phil

I had an amazing time not least because the whole planning of the trip & the attitude of the staff was exceptional. Our trip leader Mat was such a knowledgeable guy on so many aspects of the trip & very professional with everything & everyone. Nothing seemed to phase him!! There were so many highlights on the trip but my whole Victoria Falls experience including the elephant back safari & walking with lions experiences that I did, the Chobe River cruise & our time in the Delta (in spite of the most basic hole in the ground toilet facilities!!) are all top of the the list. In fact I think that pretty much covers everything I did on the tour. I also met a wonderful group of people from many different countries - Spain, USA, Germany & Columbia. The fact that I don't speak any other language except English did not create any problems with any aspect of the trip. I would have no hesitation in recommending both On the Go Tours for travel experiences.

Also many thanks to you & your colleagues for all the assistance in making my trip so memorable.

   Elephants & Falls - 9 days

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.
