I was one of 6 people that travelled 57 days on the Great African Expedition from Nairobi, Kenya to Capetown, South Africa.
What an absolutely fantastic trip, from day 1 to the end. We saw the "big 5" multiple times and met some lovely people along the way.
I've got nothing but high praise for our Group Leader, Hes, similarly, Malinga, our cook, was a terrific guy that kept us well fed in sometimes difficult circumstances. Finally, Steve, our driver, was exceptional and kept us safe all the way.
Overall, I had a Fantastic time.
I was the oldest guy on the the truck and had an unbelievably incredible time.”
Amazing trip, the crew were one of the best parts, made it so much fun and no problems at all. ”
Amazing, we saw & did everything we wanted to on this tour from giraffes gracefully dancing in the moonlight to the Big 5 up close and personal. This tour was the best tour my husband and I have ever done. We are avid travellers and always wanted to do a Safari the best way to do it is with On The Go! Our team was Will, Mama, and Frans the best team trio to guide any one on this tour. Will knew everything about anything, Frans is a careful and very helpful driver, with safety as priority and Mama - what an amazing cook. This tour offers any type of traveller an unforgettable experience. The sites, the parks, the campgrounds, the people, will forever remain in our most cherished memories!
This company is one of the most professional, personable, and client-oriented companies that we have ever booked with. The company even arranged for my husband's birthday to be celebrated while in camp. A birthday cake appeared after dinner and everyone broke out into singing Happy Birthday, truly made us feel special.
We are planning another trip to Africa in the near future and will absolutely go with On The Go again.”
