About 1 2 Go Tours – African Safari &Travel Specialist based in South Africa
Welcome to Africa, the land we love and continue to explore, from the bustling cities and buzzing villages to the most remote and pristine landscapes.
We have a passion for travel and fascination of nature, seeking every available opportunity to discover new places, into the tranquil mountains and cool forests, across the savanna plains and bush where wild animals roam, along the stunning coastal areas where wild waves thunder, through the lonely deserts and down the rolling rivers.
In amongst all of this there are fascinating people and colourful cultures, those who live close to nature and still practise ancient traditions, and those who live in the modern world and bear their ancestry with pride and dignity.
1 2 Go Tours is about travel, showcasing the best that Africa has to offer, satisfying your needs, exceeding your expectations and making your dreams come true. It’s about getting you to where you’ve always wanted to go or places you’ve never known, places that may stir your spirit, inspire your soul and leave unforgettable memories.
We strive to interpret your wishes and realise your dreams. With 20 years of active involvement in all facets of African Safaris and Travel, we feel qualified to advise and guide you towards the holiday of a lifetime.
What We Offer – Products & Services
Our safari packages cover a wide range of experiences in Africa including wildlife safaris, beach holidays, wilderness exploration, sightseeing, historical and cultural tours, adventure and leisure activities and city attractions.
Most packages are fully inclusive of accommodation, meals, activities and local transfers while others allow some flexibility with regard to meals and activities.
We also offer self drive packages that allow you greater freedom to explore, especially in destinations such as Namibia and South Africa which are well suited for this type of itinerary.
The guided safaris on our website are scheduled group departures but we also offer privately guided safaris which can be tailored to your requirements and provide a more personalised and intimate experience. Privately guided safaris will be found in the safari packages category.
We place a large emphasis on high guiding standards and strive to ensure that your experience will be rewarding. Good guides are passionate about what they do, making your experience highly rewarding and exciting.
A fully customised itinerary is the best solution for travellers with specific requirements as you can select the destinations, accommodation, activities and modes of travel that best suit you.
At no extra charge we work with you to find the right elements, planning your itinerary and doing all your bookings.
Any safari package or guided safari on our website can be used as a model for a tailormade safari.

Based in Africa
Being based in Africa means we have first-hand and intimate knowledge of our destinations, suppliers and products. This allows us to remain in tune and up-to-date with the best products and specials which we pass onto you and gives us the confidence to know that what we are selling has value and can be trusted.
We do not charge a fee for our services and pass on discounts and specials to you wherever possible. It is cheaper for you to book through us than to book direct, with the added bonus of expert advice and personalised service at no extra charge.

Committed to You
We are committed to providing quality products and excellent service to all our guests to ensure that your satisfaction, enjoyment and excitement are maintained from the moment you step onto African soil until the time you leave. This also means understanding and interpreting your needs and providing personalised service from the time we make contact with you until the time your holiday comes to an end.
Safari Packages and Tailormade Safaris
Our safari packages and tailormade safaris are always discounted with no service fees ensuring that the price you pay is much less than if you booked direct.
The pricing may vary according to seasonal demand, duration of stay, single supplements, or size of group.
The prices of guided safaris on our website are listed according to the currency required by the relevant tour operators. These currencies are normally US Dollars, Euros, Namibian Dollars or South African Rands.
Certain tour operators require a portion of the cost of a guided safari to be paid in cash on arrival. This local payment (US Dollars or South African Rands) covers operational costs for local cash expenses such as fuel, food, entrance and park fees, thereby ensuring that local communities benefit directly from your payment.
Many of our suppliers offer specials on their products at certain times of the year which we are able to pass on to you. These products include guided safaris and accommodation in lodges and hotels.
Park Entry Fees, Conservation Fees and Community Levies are sometimes subject to increases over which our suppliers have no control and are thus not always included in the tour price.
Fuel increases may result in unforeseen price changes.
International flights are not included in the cost of a safari.
Domestic and regional are not normally included and charter flights are sometimes included.
