In East Africa there's the spectacle of the famed migration in Tanzania and the jumping tribes of Kenya's Masai Mara. Head further south for the epic sand dunes of Namibia, the great delta system of Botswana, the spectacular parks of Zimbabwe and the stunning coastal drives of South Africa. Trek in search of the mountain gorilla, track down the Big Five in Africa’s leading game reserves or simply laze on the stunning white beaches of Zanzibar or Mozambique.

As an experienced tour operator in East and Southern Africa, On The Go offer a wide range of African adventures from overland camping expeditions to small group, lodge accommodated safaris.
