Combining expedition-style transport with camping for your accommodation is the most cost-effective way of going on safari in Africa and gets you off the beaten track too. Our Africa overland safaris are led by an experienced tour leader, along with a driver and cook who have travelled extensively throughout the region. If you don’t fancy camping, there is the option to upgrade to budget accommodation, where you stay in basic twin share rooms but will still travel with our overland camping passengers, sharing the truck, equipment and the chores and enjoying your meals together as a group.
Africa Lodge accommodated safaris
If you like to end a day's safari with a sundowner out on the terrace then our lodge accommodated trips, with a maximum group size of up to 16 passengers, may be just the ticket. With an exciting range of itineraries in Southern Africa, East Africa and Madagascar, you can discover the wonders of this diverse and captivating continent whilst staying in comfortable mid-range lodges and permanent tented camps set within beautiful surroundings. You’ll be accompanied by a knowledgeable and experienced guide who doubles as your driver.
Africa Safari Holidays
If a group safari is not for you then why not take a look at our classic safari holiday itineraries, where the travel arrangements are just for you and your travelling party.

Such an amazing trip. Very well organised. Met some lovely people who will be friends for life. Thanks for making it a special trip to remember ”
I loved everything about the tour and South Africa. I thought the tour was very well planned and that we had enough time in each location without being rushed, and I feel like we got to see a lot of highlights. I also liked the accommodations. Some people on the tour expected something more 4 or 5 stars (even though they didn't pay for it), but I thought the accommodations were as expected or better. I loved the beehive huts in Swaziland in particular. But the highlight of the entire tour for me, though, was the guide, Nerise. She is hands down the best guide I have had on any tour ever (and I have done quite a few). She was great at organizing everyone and everything, she dealt perfectly with challenging personalities (we had a few on the tour) and she knew an incredible amount about South Africa, but shared the right amount about it so that it wasn't overwhelming. Thanks for an amazing tour and experience!”
The tour was incredible! Everything from the food to the accommodations and tours were amazing! The camping sites were all clean and safe and the upgrades were great value for money. The cook made delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was also fun helping with the meal prep/cleaning and getting to know the group more. The organized tours were well planned and the optional excursions were great as well. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and driver did a great job getting us to each destination in a safely and timely manner. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone and can't wait to go on another On The Go tour! ”
Africa has some of the best wildlife on the planet from big cats to massive elephants and from the unpredictable buffalo to the rare black rhino. The Big Five are always high on people's bucket list for things to see but there's plenty more magnificent creatures to meet on safari in Africa and our handy wildlife guide tells you all you need to know from where to go for which animals and when best to go.
