What our clients say about our tours

  • Glen was very organised and knowledgeable. He gave clear directions as to what we would be doing the following day. He has a very calm and friendly manner. He has extremely good hearing and the ability to both hear the birds and point them out. He was very helpful to assist me when I did not see where the bird was. I would certainly like to travel with him again.

  • Markus’s ability to find, ID, and scope birds for us (apparently simultaneously, sometimes along with photographing it) was absolutely amazing, and we ended up with some very remarkable sightings of what I gather are generally quite difficult birds. His knowledge of the birds of the region and their natural history is comprehensive, and his enthusiasm added immeasurably to our enjoyment of the trip. He was always on alert, calling out birds as we drove or walked, somehow kept track of what everyone had or had not seen well so far, and was very patient about repeating ID tips. He did a great job of keeping us informed of the daily plans – both logistics and, birdwise, the rationale for choices of where we would stop and what our current targets were. Though we were a small group, we did represent a range on the spectrum of watchers and listers, and Markus did a fine job of catering to different interests. Markus seemed to have an endless store of energy, and along with his guiding and organizing skills, he was a fun travel companion. He even provided us with copies of some of his fantastic photos from the trip at the end, so after each long day of guiding, he must also have been spending his evening time working on his photos.

  • Our questions were always answered with clarity and accuracy. There were no surprises as a result… This trip was a wonderful and unique experience for me. I actually felt renewed and revitalized when it was over. Thanks to everyone for an experience of a lifetime!

  • Rockjumper and our guide, Forrest, put on an exceptional trip to Jamaica. All endemics spotted, great company, and great lodgings. Highly recommend this trip if anyone is looking for a relaxing week-long birding vacation.

    RD & DH, Jamaica
  • Thoroughly enjoyed Gareth – sense of humour was great and he worked tirelessly to ensure everyone could see the bird.

    SH, South Africa Comp V 2015
  • The office staff are always so friendly in their response to emails, and I always feel that there is a personal relationship. That makes for good customer relationships. I met Rockjumper at an ABA conference years ago, and was impressed by them. I regret that I did not take the tour sooner. I have traveled with most of the major companies on more than 30 tours, and I feel that Rockjumper is superior in many ways, especially in having skilled and enthusiastic leaders.

    W, Uganda Birds & Gorillas
  • From your looking at my list two years ago and your comments on where best to get the birds, I was able to work out which trips would be most productive…. You were always drawing my attention to what were new, or possible splits, and checking what I still needed! And then not only did you make space in your busy programme to fit in our [Tanzania] Mega before my deadline, but putting in all the hours to find those tricky ones and patiently re-trying over and over again when I dipped or didn’t get good views! I am most grateful & know I could not have done it without you!

    IR, Tanzania Mega
  • 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
  • During Oct 19 to Nov. 6, 2010 I participated in the Eastern South Africa and Western Cape Extension tour. It is the ultimate tour if you are birding for the first time in the African continent. The diversity of birds is over-whelming and unlike birding in the tropical Americas, the birds are easy to see! I personally added 419 lifers! The pace of the tour was ideal.  Accommodations were top-notch and the meals wonderful. Keith Valentine is an unsurpassed tour leader.  Extremely knowledgeable yet very laid back, approachable and quick to laugh. I have been on many organized bird tours but none come close to the standards set by Rockjumper on this tour. The bar has been raised!

    TB, Eastern South Africa 2010
  • David Hoddinott was an excellent leader. It was obvious he had devoted a lot of preparation time studying the birds and learning their vocalizations. I was very impressed with his knowledge. I’d love to go on another tour with him some day.

    JM, South West Pacific Islands 2015
  • [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
  • Rich Lindie was excellent and very helpful.  His knowledge of the birds & wildlife of Brazil was phenomenal; in addition he told us much about other areas of the world.  [W]e … had a great time.

    EL, Pantanal Cerrado and Amazon Rainforest Ext
  • Wayne and Markus are both fantastic guides and the trip was spectacular!!  I would definitely travel with Rockjumper again in the future and look forward to the possibility of doing so!

    DB, Ethiopia I 2013
  • Dennis’s knowledge & ability to imitate bird calls is phenomenal. He is also an interesting person to travel with. I enjoyed Eric’s humour and felt he handled the group well.

    M, Malaysia & Borneo
  • 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!

  • We were very happy to have Heinz Ortmann as our guide. He operated the tour very skilfully in every way and with flexibility when needed to try to get all possible targets. We were also very positively surprised that he had such a great knowledge about mammals, butterflies, reptiles and amphibians beside the birds. Since we also are very interested in all these groups this was a most welcome bonus. A great tour that we will remember for a long time. We would be very happy doing another private trip with Heinz as our guide.

    JM, South Africa 2016 (Private)
  • Erik Forsyth is not only extremely knowledgeable but also accommodating and fun.

    KB, New Zealand 2017
  • Wayne has great people skills and is a lot of fun to bird with. His research and aid to identifying the birds is outstanding.

    SC, Madagascar
  • Just a postscript to reiterate our appreciation for the wonderful tour around Madagascar you led. We both had a great time. Your enthusiasm and day-to-day attention to assure we all had a successful birding experience and overview of the unique biodiversity [is] not to be forgotten.

    JB & BB, Madagascar
