What our clients say about our tours

  • I just want to say a big thank you to Alison and the Rockjumper team for an absolutely fantastic trip through Thailand recently. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and successful trip. Also, I must comment Nigel Redman, who is an exceptional guide, with a vast knowledge of birds (in Thailand and beyond), as well as a keen knowledge of recent taxonomic changes in Asian birds, and for his management of the trip and the group. Luckily for me, this was my first time birding in Asia, so I managed upwards of 330 lifers!

  • Heinz was incredible. His knowledge and personality were wonderful. What a wonderful young man! We had an incredible time.

  • Greg de Klerk worked hard to get us the sightings, to ensure everyone got a “good look” and to keep us as safe and as comfortable as possible. I especially appreciated his additional information about field marks, behaviour, the habitat/area, history and culture.

  • I can say it was a great tour. Forrest and Richard were fantastic leaders. I would bird with them anywhere.

    SP, Cost Rica 2015
  • 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
  • Markus is an exceptional guide, and I enjoy his dry wit. Despite a knee replacement only 3 months ago, I took this tout at this time in a large part because Markus was the guide.

    JN, Ghana 2015
  • David was a terrific guide and traveling companion. He managed everything from birding to people to logistics like a veteran. We’d love to travel with him again any time

    WW, Madagascar
  • This private tour, organised by Rockjumper, allowed us to visit some fantastic areas in the country. Our main focus was on birds, with Pel’s Fishing Owl and Shoebill high on our “would like to see” lists. We saw both of them really well, along with another 56 lifers. The Shoebill sighting will remain in our memories for many years, as we waded through the marsh to see both adults close to the nest, plus a well-grown youngster! The overall Bird List totalled some 320 species, along with 47 species of mammal. Highlights of the mammal sightings included an hour spent with a hunting Leopard, a couple of Lionesses with five cubs, a Cheetah with six cubs and sightings of four different Serval.

    The pace of the tour was excellent and staying for three nights in a small number of sites gave us the opportunity to really explore the different habitats. The accommodation throughout was fantastic. David Hoddinott was a fantastic leader and was aptly supported by the local guides.

  • Wayne Jones is one of the best tour leaders I have been with… He is great at making we all see the birds. He knows their songs and call and the habitats where they occur.

  • The ultimate birding trip: stunning destinations, endemics galore, cruising through the Raja Ampats and Maluku on a lovely wooden boat with wonderful crew and great food, gorgeous sunsets, awesome snorkelling and two of the best Rockjumper guides – Keith and Glen Valentine. And to top it off, Wilson’s Bird-of-Paradise!!!!!!!!!

  • Dušan was great. He took charge of the group with enthusiasm. His birding skills are excellent. The office staff were super in responding to emails and answering questions. I have told my birding friends to consider Dušan and Rockjumper when they schedule their next trip.

    CF, Cuba
  • Erik was a delight to be with, as his sense of humour was a constant. Having him at the helm added an unexpected and pleasurable dimension to the whole trip. The entire trip was terrific: beautiful scenery, nice people, good beer and food, and comfy accommodations.

  • I cannot possibly say enough good things about Chris Sharpe; he did a spectacular job on this tour! His knowledge of the birds of the region is comprehensive, and he was very good about letting us know about their natural history in addition to field marks and ID. He was very enthusiastic and handled everything with unflagging good humor. Chris made sure we knew what to expect on each excursion and worked really hard to ensure that we all had the best possible chances to see those skulky and exciting forest birds. He would give us good guidance such as, “Strange as it may seem, right now you really want to be watching this piculet rather than that macaw,” and seemed remarkably good at keeping in mind who had seen what as we went along. He worked well with a group with varying levels of expertise, and was very patient with those of us struggling to get to grips with an outstanding number of new species. I don’t want to leave out our local guide on this tour … [who] was a great asset, very knowledgeable, personable, enthusiastic, and helpful.

  • Our Rockjumper birding  journey through Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda was an amazing experience, made even more fantastic by our young South African guide. Rainer Summer’s sensors are so fine tuned he can seek out and identify every single bird in the forest, desert and wetlands, by sight or sound. It seemed that he had permanent binos on his eyes and ears like satellite dishes! He shares his expertise and knowledge in a professional manner making sure that everyone saw each bird, providing information for all birders serious or beginners…. Our sincere thanks go to Rainer.

    AS & HS, Tanzania & Kenya
  • 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
  • The tour met all of my expectations. Rob Williams is an excellent tour guide – knowledgeable, manages logistics well, interacts with participants in a fun and caring way, and strives to find the birds that are on participants’ “wish lists”.

  • André our game ranger for the third time once again is impeccable! His eyesight is actually too good for words!

  • 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.
