What our clients say about our tours

  • Greg de Klerk was very considerate of individual needs. He is also extremely knowledgeable about ornithology, wildlife, geology, local cultures and languages. A fountain of helpful information. I would certainly travel with Greg again, and would recommend him to others.

  • Glen was great! His steady, unflappable leadership was the best and he got us on some terrific birds, never stopped trying, always looking. At the same time, he handled logistics very well and always with good humour. His enthusiasm for all things in nature and thoughtful attentiveness to the group made this a special trip.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Our guide, Adam Walleyn, was exceptional. His knowledge and enthusiasm is unparalleled.

  • Dušan was an extraordinary guide. His birding skills, humanity, and concern for all of us was beyond reproach.

    NL & CL, Cuba
  • 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.

  • David was an excellent leader with exceptional birding skills. He was very attentive and helpful in handling both the birding and the logistics. In addition to his birding and guiding skills, David is also very personable and easy to talk to. I would definitely go on another trip with him as a guide.

    BB, Birds & Tigers I
  • Our guide, Greg de Klerk, was absolutely fabulous. Not only great birding skills and knowledge throughout our tour, but his enthusiasm and amazing knowledge of Kruger and all its wildlife made for an unforgettable experience (it was my first trip to Africa). He was especially good at helping everyone in our party see each bird or animal which I greatly appreciated. Greg handled all aspects of the tour flawlessly. I would definitely recommend Greg highly for whatever tour he is leading.

  • Rockjumper Birding Tours again handled everything with professionalism. Serra dos Tucanos Lodge and its setting were beautiful. Andy was an expert guide and helped everyone see the birds, and yet he had a great sense of humour so that every outing and checklist session was fun.  I also enjoyed hearing him answer questions about other aspects of living in Brazil as we travelled to our hiking spots. Super tour! – PH

  • Our guide, Gareth Robbins was excellent. His knowledge of the area covered was exceptional, sometimes down to the rock the bird might land on. His repertoire of the bird calls and songs was impressive. He was adamant about getting each of us on the bird, and his delight when we saw it was transparent.

    AE, Eastern South Africa VIII 2015
  • Suffice it to say we will remember this trip for the rest of our lives. It could not have been better from start to finish. Thank you to everyone there at Rockjumper, including yourself – you are quite a wonderful team!

    R, Tanzania
  • We had an absolutely fabulous safari in Tanzania!  The sights we saw were unbelievable – the giraffe standing at the edge of the road, the lion walking up to our vehicle and laying in our shadow, the dik-dik walking down the centre of the road toward us, the many leopards and cheetahs so close and of course, the wildebeest migration.  So much more!  Just unbelievable!  
    Markus was a marvelous leader.  He was so good with our granddaughters and could relate to them so well.  He was a big help to me and made sure I saw some birds.  It was a good combination of birds and animals.  Everyone else enjoyed the birds, also.
    I could go on and on.  Rockjumper has top-notch people.  Thanks for all the help.

  • This was my first tour with Rockjumper and hopefully will not be my last. The service provided was excellent and Gareth Robbins was an excellent guide. I would have no hesitation in travelling with him again.

    HL, South Africa 2015
  • 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
  • David was the most skilled birding tour leader that I’ve ever encountered in getting his telescope on a bird in record time. As a result, we saw beautiful images of many species that would have been difficult to observe with bins only. David is also very congenial and easy to talk with. His enthusiasm is contagious and he was generous in sharing his considerable knowledge.

    ND, Ghana Highlights
  • The faster pace of the tour (South Africa Mega) was just what I wanted, and maximized chances for as many endemics as possible without adding more days.  Markus was on top of things throughout, his timing and logistics were flawless, and his spotting skills are excellent.  His precision served the group well and the group size (6) was ideal.  He also was great with the many mammals, positioning the vehicle for the best viewing and photography, and sharing information about life histories.  I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and just wish I could do it all over again!

    RB, SA Mega
  • 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
  • Glen, as usual, was the best. This is our third trip with him and would not hesitate to do many more.
