A World of Discovery

Kenya Safari Tours

Kenya boasts the most spectacular stretch of the Great Rift Valley, mighty Mt Kenya and the stunning savannah plains of the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru with its flock of pink flamingos and a pristine Indian Ocean coast.

An undoubted highlight is Kenya’s premier game reserve, the Masai Mara. Earning its name from the Masai tribes people and the Mara River which divides it, the reserve is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual Great Migration of the wildebeest between August and October each year. The Masai Mara is perhaps most famous for its lions, though all the other members of the Big 5 roam the reserve too.

Kenya is a classic African destination, with wonderful safari opportunities and we offer a number of travel styles from adventurous overland style camping trips to lodge accommodated small group safaris as well as tailor made holidays.

We loved our tour and all the different sights of beautiful East Africa! The Masai game drive was AMAZING! But by far the best part of the experience was meeting and having the assistance of our brilliant guide, Kevin. He was not only extremely knowledgable and organised, but very friendly, lots of fun and super helpful! Due to his expertise and demeanour, we would definitely have faith in On The Go and be likely to book again! ”

Linda was fantastic, very knowledgeable, caring and helpful. ”

Our tour guide, Hesbon, was amazing. He always kept us updated on the itinerary and options coming up. He also had a wealth of information to share with us, which made the trip even better. I loved that he would put up notes about the schedule, as well as daily vocabulary lessons, so we could learn some Swahili as we travelled on the truck. On top of this, Hesbon was also lovely to spend time with it and showed genuine interest in us as individuals. I feel that he went above and beyond what his role requires and will be trying to tag onto a tour of his again in the future.

The tour was a perfect "taster" of East Africa, and I only wished I could have stayed longer. It was brilliant to be able to see both gorillas and the "Big 5" in one tour. Though it would be good if the tour was perhaps extended by 2 days, so to reduce the travelling days. It was quite hard spending entire days travelling, so would be better to cover the distance over a slightly longer period of time and allow more time exploring towns/cities.”
