icon Day 1 : Victoria Falls

Location:

  Victoria Falls


Meals Included:

  No Meals


Saturday. Welcome to Victoria Falls, one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world! Included transfer to our campsite. On day 1 there is a pre-departure meeting at 17:00hrs.

icon Day 2 : Victoria Falls

Location:

  Victoria Falls


Meals Included:

  No Meals


Today is spent relaxing or participating in a myriad of optional excursions. Named after the famous World Heritage site and Water Falls, the town of Victoria Falls is situated on the Zambezi River and surrounded by the Victoria Falls National Park. Our campsite is conveniently situated in the centre of town, and within walking distance of the adventure booking agents, restaurants and shops. A 20 minute walk down the main road takes you to the entry point to view the falls, which are situated between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders), was named by David Livingstone on his explorations, and is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. At 1700 m wide and around 100 m high, this is the world's largest sheet of falling water and a memorable sight on any African Safari! Our exciting range of optional excursions include horseback safaris, a visit to the crocodile ranch, boat cruises and golf at The Elephant Hills Resort. Adrenalin junkies can bungee from the Victoria Falls Bridge connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia or abseil down the Batoka Gorge - neither activity is for the faint hearted! All year round, flights in fixed wing, micro light and ultra light aircraft or helicopters provide an aerial perspective over this magnificent World Heritage Site. White water rafting on the Zambezi is also world class.

icon Day 3 : Chobe National Park

Location:

  Chobe National Park


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Victoria Falls - Chobe (Botswana). This morning we leave Victoria Falls and cross the border into Botswana, and head to Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River. Chobe is one of Botswana’s premier game parks, renowned for the large herds of elephant around the river. This afternoon enjoy an included boat cruise along the river spotting the elephants and hippos.

icon Day 4 : Maun

Location:

  Maun


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Kasane - Nata Region. We leave this beautiful part of Botswana behind us this morning as we depart to the lush campsite called Elephant Sands. The drive will take you through a very unpopulated landscape where the donkeys roam freely. Once we have arrived at our campsite you will have the option of partaking in a game drive or a bushwalk. Your crew will provide you with more information.

icon Day 5 : Okavango Delta

Location:

  Okavango Delta


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Nata Region - Maun - Okavango Delta. Maun is the starting point for the trip into the Delta and it is from here that we can set off to explore the Okavango Delta. Tonight we prepare our provisions and packs for our overnight excursion. We suggest bringing along a smaller day pack on your trip which can be used to pack the supplies needed for this short excursion. Your trip leader will brief you fully on what is needed, and what to expect prior to your trip into the Delta.
On day 6 we take an overnight excursion into the Delta. After an early rise, we pack our expedition vehicle and from Maun we drive north for a couple of hours to reach the mokoro poler’s station. The Delta region is studded with many local villages where many families live in a traditional way. Some of the villages are very remote and can only be reached by the traditional mode of transport – the Mokoro. Mokoros are dugout canoes manoeuvred through the waterways by local guides who “pole” them through the reeds. At the Mokoro station, we meet our ‘Polers’ and pack our supplies before heading out into the waterways. After a couple of hours along the waterways, we arrive at our mobile tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango.
On arrival you will meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay. A brief introduction to the camp will show you your dome tent with twin beds and a bush en-suite bathroom – long drop toilet and a bucket shower. Relax in the tent with a cold drink or take a paddle in the Delta in a canoe. The activities at the camp include Mokoro trails and guided walking.

icon Day 7 : Maun

Location:

  Maun


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Okavango Delta - Maun. This morning we pack up and set off back to Maun. After our Mokoro ride and vehicle transfer, we arrive back in the afternoon and have the chance to complete our picture of the Okavango Delta by taking an optional scenic flight over the Delta (dependent on weather conditions & availability).

icon Day 8 : Blyde River Canyon

Location:

  Blyde River Canyon


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Maun - Palapye - Polokwane. Heading out early, we have a fairly long (450kms) drive today to the small town of Palapye, situated about halfway between Francistown and Gaborone. This popular ‘stopover’ town for those en route to South Africa, is well known for the Morupule Colliery coal mines which supplies Morupule Power Station, Botswana’s principal domestic source of electricity.
The following morning we cross into South Africa and stop to sightsee at the impressive Blyde River Canyon. Named for the Blyde River that runs through it, the canyon is 26km long, and averages 800m deep and forms the northern edge of the impressive Drakensberg Mountain Range. It is classified as a ‘green canyon’ due to the uncommon occurrence of vegetation that lines it (uncommon as most canyons are in desert areas and are fairly barren). The main viewpoints along the canyon are the 3 Rondavels, named for the shape of the traditional huts or houses the indigenous people of the area used to live in; and Gods Window that affords a breathtaking view across the canyon and surrounding area.

icon Day 10 : Kruger National Park

Location:

  Kruger National Park


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Polokwane - Nkambeni Camp. Heading through the breathtaking Panorama Route, we stop off at various viewpoints today including scenic God’s Window. We pass through the small town of Graskop, and head toward the Kruger National Park and our campsite on the border of the park. Situated just 10km from Kruger’s Phabeni Gate, the camp is home to Giraffe, Zebra and Hippo to name but a few. After settling in to our camp, we embark on a nighttime game drive.
The following day we visit the amazing Kruger National Park in search of some of the 146 mammals, 500 bird, 114 reptile, 33 amphibian & 49 fish species that make this park their home. We travel in our truck along the main game viewing routes within the park and stop off at some of the camps along the way.

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.

The tour was amazing, the updated accommodation just past the South African border was incredible, however the late arrival made it rushed.

I would highly recommend the tour was extended by a night to give travelers a full night to enjoy the local festivities, hiking availability and to even perhaps volunteer at a local school.

Our tour guide was lovely.

Our chef and driver were both lovely (Monga and Johannas) and happy to share stories/help with tents (we had a single traveler on the trip and they always made sure she was getting help when she needed it).

Definitely the highlight of the trip was the Delta Okavango.

Also, I believe the tour would have benefited from increasing the community insight provided, even if we shopped at more street-stalls for snacks or had the chance to go to a church over easter.

.

we saw so many animals and were so spoiled for natural experiences, I came home feeling a little guilty for not being more culturally aware after my trip.

The tour was great and the tour guide was excellent, so was the cook and driver, very friendly and helpful guides.

The only thing that needs to be said is that when you go to zimbabwe you must have us dollars no one we came across would accept south african rand as was stated in tour notes, also for the ockavanga delta it needs to said that you need camoflague clothing and be able to walk for at least 6 hours straight at a time.

Will, Mumma Flo and Aaron were amazing hosts and guides.

Their expertise in their work was so apparent and flawless that it made the experience overwhelmingly enjoyable.

Never before have I enjoyed myself so much on a guided tour.

Your crew are to be congratulated and I am looking forward to my next trip with On The Go Tours.

The only negative I have is the length of the driving days.

It would make for a much better experience if those days were split up with extra stops.

Fantastic trip, ideal way to see so much in just 12 days.

Tour guide, driver and chef were brilliant.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable about every place we visited and advised us on the best places to visit.

Our driver was great, always got us there safely and was a pleasure to chat to.

Our chef was incredible! As this was a budget camping trip we didn't expect the standard of food we received.

It was much more than we expected, very good quality, couldn't have asked for better.

Great trip all in all, would recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure! less....
