This was a great tour and experience. The group totaled 20, however, it never felt like there were too many and everybody got on well and had a wonderful time together. The Tour Lead, Alex Teuling, was excellent, as was the cook, Munyaradzi Shoshore and Driver Bheki Ncube. It was an excellent team. Wonderful memories.”
Overall a good tour. Amazing sights. We saw so much and it was the trip of a lifetime. The tour guide was very passionate about all subjects.
The safari and the desert trips were the highlight of the trip for me. Also the camping and eating as a group was really nice. The food was good, vegetarians well catered for. It was very well organised. ”
Excellent tour with great guides, truck drivers, and cooks. Would highly recommend travelling Africa via On The Go overland tours. Excellent value for money and most importantly we felt safe at all times.”
