An amazing journey though Africa over 57 days. Great sights and experiences, On The Go Tours have put together a fantastic trip. You’ll see the best Africa has to offer and have a chance at one in a lifetime experiences. The different crew members over these legs made the trip even more memorable in particular our last leader Onary. Our cooks kept us well fed including some delicous local dishes. If you have the time do this trip. ”
My Cape, Namibia and Falls adventure couldn't have been better. I had the most incredible time and it was the perfect itinerary, covering all the highlights of the countries we visited. There was plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities with lots of game drives but there was also enough downtime for us to relax and enjoy the lodges we were staying at.
And speaking of the accommodation, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. For me, the standout was the Guma Lagoon Camp in the Okavango Delta - it was truly magical with a rustic permanent tent right on the water's edge yet with all the essential conveniences. I could have happily spent a week here alone!
As a solo traveller, I did wonder whether a lodge safari would be less sociable than an overland camping safari but I had nothing to worry about - everyone in the group was really friendly and as lunches are prepared at picnic spots, there's plenty of opportunity to practise camaraderie and bond over sandwiches.
Our guide Joe was brilliant. He was a one-man band serving as our driver, guide and cook and did all three jobs with complete skill and care. He made sure we were well-looked after from start to finish. We were all amazed at his wildlife spotting skills, especially when he spotted a snake on the side of the road while driving! It was a pleasure chatting with him about Africa and his experience on the road and he really made the trip for all of us on the trip.
This really was the trip of a lifetime and I can't recommend it enough. ”
Everything went very well.
A great trip. Great value for money.
To repeat. ”
