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 loved the tour, unfortunately were unaware of the amount of bus travel but that is to be expected, and have to say sleeping on mats was a little uncomfortable for our old bodies, but we managed and did upgrade once but still had the opportunity to upgrade at other camps. The camps were all good, although we did run out of hot water on occasion. Any discomforts could be expected as we were camping. I did realise on our return that we only had one opportunity to shop for souvenirs apart from the airport shops, a little more time would have been fabulous. The food was great and plentiful, the staff were fabulous and more than helpful with putting and taking off the clips to the tent, very hard to do.
The tour was great, we really had no idea or knowledge of what to expect but was amazing to see these magnificent wild animals roam where they chose, it was fabulous and would have no hesitation in recommending this tour or your company again. ”
Our guide was superb, he was honest, considerate and full of excellent advice on travelling through the areas we were going. In the same way our cook, Peter was fantastic - every meal was exceptionally good and the team was completed by a fantastic driver Peterson, who made sure that we were always comfortable on the bus, despite the pot holes. We visited some fantastic places and the included game drives and activities were excellent - the local guides used were always top quality.
The long days driving through Tanzania were challenging, although we were expecting this but leaving one place in the dark and arriving in the dark at the next, travelling all day on two consecutive days was tedious. ”
Fantastic tour that gives a real insight into the wildlife of Namibia. The game drives in Etosha were fabulous and we had great sights and sounds of hyenas feeding and elephants protecting a baby in their group. Our guide, John, worked incredibly hard liaising with the head office in order to allow 4 members of our group to stay in Etosha Park itself for a second night and take part in the night safari.
The tents and meals were of a good standard and the roll mats a lot more comfier than last time I did over landing 15 years ago. Remarkably, I recognised our driver on this trip as he was my tour leader on that overland trip such a long time ago. All the crew were great and good humoured and worked exceptionally hard.
All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable trip that I've already been recommending to my friends.”
Africa has some of the best wildlife on the planet from big cats to massive elephants and from the unpredictable buffalo to the rare black rhino. The Big Five are always high on people's bucket list for things to see but there's plenty more magnificent creatures to meet on safari in Africa and our handy wildlife guide tells you all you need to know from where to go for which animals and when best to go.
