Adventure awaits in the land of the Big Five with our range of holidays. From lodge accommodated to overland-style trips, we bring you the very best of Africa.
The vast continent of Africa with its extensive deserts, lush rainforests, tribal cultures and dramatic mountain ranges is poles apart from our wet, little island of Britain so it's no wonder Africa continues to enthrall British travellers, united as we are by language, culture and a shared history.Read More
In East Africa you'll discover the famed migration of 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.

We had a marvellous time with our guide, cook and driver. We formed a lasting bond. I found Chris to be very very knowledgeable and always on top of everything we needed to do during our tour. He helped us out even before being asked and was full of fun and joined in our games and music and stories and laughter.
This is my second trip with On the Go tours and both have been fabulous. ”
McKenzie was great, he used his knowledge and group organisation skills well. He would then place us in the care of local guides for other smaller tours or activities at various locations which was good. ”
Just returned from a fabulous trip from Vic Falls to Johannesburg. Overall tour was great even putting up & down the tents everyday. Thank you to Thembe the tour guide, for making it a memorable trip to Africa and sharing your love of your country. Frans the driver was great making sure we all arrived safely to our destinations and sharing his love of Africa with us. Martins kitchen kept us fed daily and we had great food every day.
