Get 2 for 1 on Africa Overland Safaris

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 incredible safari opportunities and many highlights. To compliment this we offer a range of travel styles from adventurous overland camping trips to lodge accommodated safaris as well as tailor-made holidays.

Nothing but good experiences with this tour. Huge thanks to the guide Chris, the cook Malinga and the driver Steve for making it an amazing experience for our first time in Africa.”

Sammy was fantastic!!!! Knowledgeable, always happy, answered all questions, made sure we saw as much as we could.

Sunbird Lodge was pleasant, however, there were a few issues - lots of stairs to go up and down to cabin and main area. No elevators. Three people at the lodge were ill, including one of us. Cob webs in washroom. Asked to clean up and they dusted, however, all the dust was just left all over our luggage.

Fig Tree --- Clean the pool walls and floor.

Other than those few things, everything was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Would recommend to anyone who wants to go and would love to do again.”

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! ”
