What our clients say about our tours

  • I’d like to thank you all for a fantastic Madagascar Comprehensive trip. Crystal and Alison were so helpful with all the pre-trip stuff; Glen and Fano made the trip so smooth and successful in every way and the local guides were fantastically skilled.

    MM, Madagascar
  • Both Eliza and I really enjoyed our trip with you. Great birds, animals, landscape and people. Your dedication and sincere interest in our wishes exemplify the perfect guide. It has been such a great pleasure getting to know you and traveling with you. I hope that we can do it again.

    E, Private (Eastern) South Africa
  • My thanks to Keith and Glen Valentine for taking so much time in getting me on the birds. They are so patient and really nice.

    MM, Remote Indonesian Islands Cruise 2017
  • The tour was great. I got along well with the other participants and I greatly appreciated Greg de Klerk. I quickly realised he knew what he was doing and could relax. He was careful to make sure we all got to see all the birds. I will definitely use Rockjumper again… Can’t go wrong!

    DL, South Africa
  • Forrest is truly a pleasure. His bird-finding skills, both by sight and ear, are phenomenal, but even more striking is his singular personality and people skills. Always enthusiastic. Not only would I travel with Forrest again, I preferentially would select a tour if he was guiding.

    AF, Panama
  • Adam, “You are simply the best” and really showed me how one should bird and how to go about it. Our early morning walks in the forest gave me the impression that I was in the worlds finest concert hall with the greatest musicians rendering their best songs. I was humbled by this experience and will never forget it…

    JM, Mozambique 2015
  • David is a terrific guide – very friendly and lovely to travel with.

    WR, Madagascar
  • Well, we have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks in Ecuador led by the best guide of any other trip we have taken for bird watching. Forrest is a true asset to the Rockjumper organization. On behalf of Kim and I, and I’m sure I can also speak for the rest of our group, please pass along our comments to Forrest. Forrest has taken birdwatching to a much higher level with his energy and knowledge, both of the area and his wealth of knowledge of the natural world. It is people like him that help make Rockjumper a Cadilac in the Birdwatching field.

    RB, Ecuador
  • Just a short note to say that I thought Heinz did a great job with the Masoala extension—he’s a a sharp birder, energetic, and very personable with a lot of good stories! I look forward to traveling on another trip with him…

    JT, Madagascar 2015
  • This was an excellent trip. I couldn’t have written a better story.  Our guide, Chris Sharpe was knowledgeable in birds and other scientific topics. He was very keen on details of  our arrangements and itinerary, keeping our time productive and enjoyable.  He had a very pleasant demeanour, was enthusiastic about the birds we were searching for, and was a good story teller, which helped make the whole experience a lot of fun.

    JP, Cuba
  • Erik Forsyth is one of the best guides. Extraordinary knowledge of birds as well as New Zealand itself. Personable and cheerful with a wonderful sense of humour. He is attentive birders’ needs and made every effort to meet and exceed any special needs. He knew where to try and find the endemics, and the only one we didn’t see or hear was because of inclement weather. We would definitely travel with Erik again should that opportunity present itself.

    JM & MW, New Zealand 2017
  • A fantastic inaugural tour of the Manaus area. As usual, rainforest birding presented its challenges, especially all those skulkers, the names of which invariably begin with ant-! However, our brilliant leader, Forrest Rowland, and his equally brilliant offsider and local guide, Brad, showed endless patience trying to get everyone to see as many species as possible – with almost 500 spp seen in 17 days! We visited a variety of habitats in addition to terra firme forest, including varzea, campinarana and riverine islands, each with a different suite of birds. The trip went off without a hitch with efficient van and boat transport, comfortable accommodation and delicious local food.

    SL, Brazil – Manaus
  • We loved Glen Valentine!  Very skilled, and not defensive if we questioned an ID.  Liked that he continued to call out even the common birds throughout the tour, which meant we got a chance to really study each species.   Good sense of humor, and fun to bird with!

    Pvt Castleman India
  • A massive thanks has to go to André, the ranger, he was exceptional. His knowledge of wildlife was incredible. We were able to learn so much about the animals, plants and he is the ‘bird’ guru!! We cant thank him enough for his time, going out of his way to show us everything possible, we saw everything.

    A
  • Wayne Jones was excellent. His knowledge of birds, where to find them, identification – both by sight and sound – was superb. He was very personable with a good sense of humour. I especially appreciate his patience in helping us find some birds which were not particularly in plain view. All-in-all, a very good trip.

    BG, Kenya & Tanzania
  • [Cuan’s] enthusiasm for birding was unbeatable. He made every effort to make sure all members of the party saw every bird…. [He] respected all levels of birding knowledge and ability within the group, making those with beginning ability feel just as valued as the advanced birders.

    JC & SC
  • Markus gets A+++ marks from me.  Not only is he an excellent birder, but he is also a wonderful traveling companion.  Our conversations were varied and interesting.  He not only knows a lot about nature; he also participated in talks about a wide variety of subjects. We learned a lot about South Africa.  His sense of humor is wonderful.  His enthusiasm kept us all on a anticipatory high.  His leading a tour will be a big plus for me when I am deciding on another trip.

    SC, SA Mega & Kruger
  • Recently back at home from our fantastic tour in Madagascar, I wanted to offer thanks to all for the excellent times we enjoyed.  For us, the exuberant and superbly-skilled leadership of Rich Lindie was a delight and gave us such a greater measure of understanding to the natural wonders as well as a bit of the cultural aspects of the unique island.  We had a great time, and we certainly saw a tremendous variety of the birds, mammals, and many other creatures as well as strange and wonderful plant life of the “Eighth Continent”.  Thanks to Cuan and all the staff for assisting in the planning stages.  Above all, however, thanks to Rich for giving his all to ensure a successful and thoroughly delightful tour…. From start to finish, a most memorable trip, and our highest recommendation to Rockjumper for the entire experience.

    TF, Madagascar
  • David was a fantastic guide whose love for his homeland, and passion for its wildlife, shone brightly.  I couldn’t have wished for a better guide to show me the wonders of South Africa.
