Day 1 : Maun
Location: Maun, Moremi
Meals Included: Dinner

Maun - Moremi Game Reserve. Welcome to Botswana! On arrival at Maun Airport, you will be met and transferred to a light aircraft. From here we enjoy a magical scenic flight over the incredible Okavango Delta. We'll be able to see for miles in all directions, and you may be able to see some of the Delta's bigger species, including elephants, as we pass overhead. Remember to bring your binoculars!
We land at a remote bush airstrip in the heart of Moremi Game Reserve, in the eastern corner of the Okavango Delta. Moremi is one of the most beautiful and varied reserves found on the African continent with huge concentrations of wildlife and incredible scenery. The reserve consists of both swamped areas, and dry-land areas.. The reserve protects around one-third of the Okavango and is home to all of the Big Five, including the rare black rhinoceros. There are also cheetah, hippo, giraffe, and even a population of endangered African wild dogs!
Enjoy a game drive through the reserve and a light lunch as we journey to our mobile camp in the Xakanaxa / Third Bridge area of Moremi where we will spend our first two nights. Settle in with a drink around the campfire and see which animal noises you recognize as darkness falls. The accommodation on this tour consists of simple but comfortable accommodation in en-suite walk-in Meru style tents.

Day 2 : Moremi Game Reserve
Location: Moremi, Maun
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Wake up at sunrise and head out on an early morning game drive after breakfast.
Spot lumbering elephant herds, zebras, sleeping lions, and if we're really lucky, an elusive leopard or a pack of African wild dogs! Return to camp for lunch and then there's time to relax before heading out in search of wildlife again in the late afternoon as the animals awake from their day's slumber. Spend a second night at our mobile bush camp within the reserve.

Day 3 : Khwai River
Location: Khwai
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Moremi Game Reserve - Khwai Community Area. This morning we eat an early breakfast before packing up the camp and heading out of Moremi Game Reserve and into the neighbouring Khwai Community Area. This 1,800 square kilometre concession is home to around 400 local tribes people and is separated from the reserve by the Khwai River. It is in this area that our mobile camp is set up for the next three nights.
The Khwai Community Area is tremendous for wildlife, boasting Moremi on one side, and the Okavango Delta on the other. Iconic species including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and African wild dog all live in the area. And it is a great spot for birdwatching too, with species such as the Malachite kingfisher and colourful little bee-eater making the most of the Khwai River.
The rest of day 3 and the next two days are spent exploring the region's lush floodplains on morning and afternoon game drives. We also enjoy a 2.5-hour mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) trip into the Okavango, exploring narrow channels and watching wildlife on the bank as it comes to drink. Evenings are spent camping at our comfortable mobile camp out in the bush.

Day 6 : Maun
Location: Maun
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Khwai Community Area - Maun. Today your Botswana safari comes to an end. After breakfast, we'll head back to Maun, and lunch will be provided along the way. Arriving at around noon, it's just a short walk to the airport for your onward flight.

Wonderful experience


Jamal is our tour guide. Right from the start, he created a group chat in whatsapp and if any issues to make sure we contact him. He was on the ball with every issue thrown at him. Luggage being left behind, stragglers wondered off in a different path, hotel room etc. He explains the various site along our route to give us a better understanding of the local cultures. We had a great time, thanks to Jamal.

Land of the Northern Lights 5 day tour of Iceland


The Land of Northern Lights tour was a triumph! My tour of Southern Iceland was absolutely wonderful. The venues chosen, the timing allotted at each venue and the variety of things to experience was nearly perfect. Our guide, "Thor", was smart, amusing, full of history and anecdotal stories as well as being incredibly hospitable and helpful. This small group experience was my first, but not my last thanks to On the Go.

On The Go Tours Sri Lanka was an incredible experience that was made even better by our tour guide Akthar. He was incredibly knowledgeable about his country and he loved sharing it with us. The tour covers a wide range of activities so you can truly experience what Sri Lanka is all about. The beautiful 4-5 star hotels at the end of every day was an absolute bonus. Thanks for a great trip OTGT I’m sure this won’t be my last

King Tutankhamun 10 day tour of Egypt


I have just returned from my tour with On The Go and it was an amazing trip! From arriving at the airport and meeting the OTG representative, everything was well organised and hassle free.  Our tour guide was Amir. He is awesome!! From the beginning he was so friendly and enthusiastic about showing us around Egypt, giving us loads of information at each place and time to explore ourselves. Learnt so much from him about this fascinating place, and he was always happy to answer more questions.   The trip itself was amazing. There's lots of travelling on this trip, but it's really not too bad, and the sights you see when you get to where you are going are worth it. I'm not a big fan of boats, but the Felluca ride across the Nile was pretty fun too.  On the first day I also did the optional tour of Cairo with Ahmed Helal - another excellent guide from OTG. It's worth doing this add on as you don't spend much time in Cairo, and you go to three very different places.  I'm so glad that I decided to do this trip. It was just ace.  If you're thinking about it too, you should probably just book it. And hopefully you get Amir as your guide.

TOTALLY MOROCCO We booked a 9 day tour of Morocco visiting many main cities and places of interest. The coach was very comfortable and we felt safe with the driver Suliman. The guide was Hicham Touraouine and he was fantastic. He spoke perfect English as well as French, Arabic and Berber. He was so kind and considerate and made a good tour great. We particularly enjoyed ‘glamming in the Sahara Desert. So much to see and do and great food and company. We would definitely use On The Go Tours again, especially if Hicham was the guide.

Gallipoli tour. The guide was awesome. Everything went like clockwork.. My complaint is that you expect 4 people to cramp together on the back seat of the van for 4 hours. That is poverty travel. Not really acceptable for the price paid. So uncomfortable. If was to do this trip again I'd just rent a car. Although the guide was amazing, but that's 3 hours of the trip.

Terrible tour of India. For some reason On the Go hadn't realised that my room mate had booked her own room for the first night of tour. So the hotel in Delhi had tried to put me in her room after midnight, by wheeling in an extra bed. She went Crazy!! I then had to sit in hotel reception for hours. While the tour guide said he couldn't find me a room. Throughout the tour the guide consistently ask me and my room mate for money for my room, causing more friction between us. Don't book with this company had the worst experience ever. Go with Intrepid or G Adventure

I had used them once before and loved them. I decided to try them again for a Baltic tour not knowing that they put me on another Tour group- Baltic vision. Loved that tour but was not impressed they marked up the cost for me over 100%. I understand taking some for yourself because of paperwork, but over double the cost everyone else paid on the tour. Just double check before you book with them that you’re not over paying.

I booked three tours with...


I booked three tours with this agency. While the first two experiences were very nice, with well-thought-out itineraries and knowledgeable guides, the third tour was an absolute nightmare for us. Due to the unavailability of an hotel from the trip notes, the agency opted to replace it with another they claimed was "similar." To our dismay, this alternative was nothing short of a decrepit, filthy establishment that threatened to ruin our entire safari experience in South Africa. But the fiasco didn't end there. This so-called hotel began proposing and organizing activities starkly different from what we were promised in the trip notes, together with an awful services of their guides and vehicles. And when this disaster struck and we desperately needed their support? The agency ghosted us. It took them an entire day to respond, and when they did, they simply shrugged off our concerns, asserting it was too late to fix anything, even though three nights of our trip were still ahead. The level of unprofessionalism was staggering. Forced to salvage our experience, we took matters into our own hands, leaving that awful place to book another hotel and activities for the remainder of our trip—all at my own expense. Based on my experience, I suggest travelers to think twice before considering this agency. Seek out reputable companies known for their commitment to customer service and integrity.
