Me and my partner had such a beautiful 14 days holiday! I'm happy with the full experience with the OnTheGoTour; my travel agent, Libby, was great, very passionate about her job, reliable and prompt to answer to our enquirers.

Our troupe, consisting in Njaramba (guide), Steven (driver), Malinga (cook) was just above our expectation.

Great people and real professionals! We felt safe, in good hands and we share beautiful moments.

I loved after dinner listen to Njaramba's stories around the fire, it was so fascinating and interesting, attracting all of us attention.

Nothing was left to chance, every aspect of our tour was studied on every small details, from the fair rotation's seat in the truck, to the duties each of us had to do, from the stops along the way, to the right moment to see the places of interest, from the beautiful meals, to the strategic choices of the camping areas.

what an amazing experience! I look forward to book again with you! Thank you!; ....less
