Experience the endless plains of the Serengeti with our range of overland camping, lodge-accommodated and tailor-made safari tours and holidays to Tanzania.
Tanzania is a country of outstanding natural beauty, wonderful wildlife and rich culture, with over 120 tribal groups. For many it’s the ultimate safari country, which is not surprising for a country that has more land devoted to national parks than any other wildlife destination, covering an incredible 42,000 km². This includes the UNESCO-listed Serengeti, the setting for the famed wildebeest migration, and Ngorongoro Crater, a vast volcanic crater ring teeming with animals. Tanzania is also home to Mt Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain and Zanzibar, an idyllic tropical getaway, ideal for some blissful beach time.Read More

This trip was superb, We had a wonderful time and saw so many animals, many times more than we had expected. Our guide, Leah, was friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful. Our cook, Reuben, was a miracle worker, preparing so many delicious meals using rudimentary outdoor equipment. To our delight, we discovered that several campsites offered showers. Similarly, several provided the option to locally upgrade to a room instead of a tent. ”
Great value tour, we really enjoyed ourselves.
A few members of the tour seemed upset about having to make tents, help with cooking and cleaning for lunches and dinners, etc. But we thought that part of the tour was fine and it helped get to know the guide, cook and driver when we were working with them.
We would have liked to spend a bit more time with people in Tanzania and Kenya in order to get more of a feel for the countries. So, some free time in some local communities would have been nicer, the Maasai village seemed a bit too structured rather than just getting a chance to talk to the people for example. The way the orphanage visit was set up was great though, as we got some time with the kids during dinner and got to chat with them on our own.
The game drives were great, especially paying extra for the jeep in the Masai Mara. It was our highlight of the tour.
We came away loving Africa and wanting to come back. We will be considering On The Go for our next tour as well.”
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.”
