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.
