It was a fantastic tour especially enjoyed Vic Falls and Kruger National Park Addo Elephant Park a bit disappointing the area to lush to really see any animals. The accommodation was great on tour some exceptional especially Craddock and Drackenberg Mountain area. The guide Todd and tour drive Rodd were both exceptional answered all our needs. Very satisfied,the only issue was one missed pick up, I phoned and all worked out in the end. The best room at Vic Falls with balcony overlooking water hole which allowed us to see all the wild animals coming in to drink.
I would recommend On The Go. Cheers Rhonda”
Absolutely amazing trip, met and exceeded all expectations. Our tour leader, McKenzie, and crew of Peter the cook and Cyrus our driver were a great team and looked after us superbly. The trip covers a lot of ground but I knew that would be the case and each destination made the long travelling days worthwhile. Great to have 2 full days in Etosha, although the only disappointment was that our campsite wasn't actually in the park, meaning that we weren't able to take part in nighttime game drives or waterhole viewing even though the trip notes implied we would. All in all though a fantastic tour which is great value for money and highly recommended. I look forward to travelling with On The Go again!”
Fantastic trip, ideal way to see so much in just 12 days. Tour guide, driver and chef were brilliant. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about every place we visited and advised us on the best places to visit. Our driver was great, always got us there safely and was a pleasure to chat to. Our chef was incredible! As this was a budget camping trip we didn't expect the standard of food we received. It was much more than we expected, very good quality, couldn't have asked for better.
Great trip all in all, would recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure!”

South Africa's Eastern Cape is the ideal family safari destination with an absence of malaria and a number of accessible private reserves along with the Addo National Park, home to a large number of elephants. Lying at the end of the scenic Garden Route, a safari in the Eastern Cape can easily be combined with a self-drive holiday along the coast visiting attractive colonial towns and beautiful beaches.
