Africa Traveller Reviews - On The Go Tours

Here are some reviews from our past travellers to Africa. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.

The tour was very well organised and the local company, Albatross Travel provided a very good service. We were pleased with the knowledge of our guide and the flexibility to structure the day to suit our needs.”

I had an absolutely fantastic time on the Cape to Falls tour. A great way to see southern Africa. Our tour guide was really great, particularly at pointing out birds on the game drives. At times she could have been more proactive with information but she did have two trainees - a trainee leader and a very inexperienced and naive trainee cook who knew next to nothing about food preparation and storage. Larraine spent a lot of time helping her and handled the situation well.

Our driver, Deigns, was superb and he made the time in the truck really enjoyable.

The tour gave a really good feel for South Africa, Namibia and Botswana, less so for Zimbabwe as we were only in Vic Falls.

I would definitely do another trip with On The Go.”

I loved the tour - personal highlights were the Masai Mara and Gorilla Trek.

There were a few long days on the truck but due to the kilometres that had to be covered in the short space of time this was unavoidable and understandable.

Our guide was great. Alex couldn't have been more helpful, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He went out of his way on a number of occasions to help people out including myself. I had a medical incident on one of the game drives and Alex made sure I got to the hospital etc and was treated, he even organised my follow up medical visit that was scheduled after the tour ended. We felt safe at all times and it was clear that Alex knew what he was doing at all times.

He organised a lot of post tour accommodation and activities for a number of people which I thought was just great.

We had a couple on our tour who made things very hard for Alex and the rest of the crew - from day one they did nothing but whinge about the food (which i thought was fine), bumpiness of the roads, physical nature of activities like the gorilla trek, accommodation etc etc. I imagine they have put in a bad review but in my opinion this should be disregarded as they were the problem not the crew.

I had such a great time and I can't wait to go back! ”
