My trip with Janet was the best thing I have ever done - Janet was the best guide, knowledgeable, patient and fun. She didn't take the beaten road and gave me time to look, see and enjoy at every turn. I would recommend Ekala Eco Tours and Janet to everyone.

My husband and I did the day tour with Janet to Pilanesburg national park. Our whole day was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about the animals and where to look for them. She could pick a needle out a haystack if needed. Throughout our tour, she educated us not only on the animals and the history of the park, but... More

I did the two day Apartheid tour with Malcolm and had a wonderful time. He is extremely knowledgeable. He was careful to make sure I went to the places that were "must sees" for me and made all the sights very interesting. As a solo woman traveler I felt very safe in Malcolm's capable hands. Highly recommended.

We had the most amazing experience visiting Soweto and Johannesburg. Our guide was very knowledgable but also easy-going. He made a constant effort to transmit the information in a friendly, entertaining way, making sure everybody followed and made the most of the trip!! The guide showed deep respect for the history and culture of the places we visited as well... More

I've chosen Ekala based on the very good reviews and the information on their website. We booked the one-day Pilanesberg tour and it was fantastic. We booked on short notice but still were able to take the tour. Lots of good discussions with Janet and Linda - it didn't feel like an organised tour. On our way back, we talked... More

This was a great tour. My daughter and I learned so much. Janet was a top notch guide, knowledgable and pleasant. Although I am from Joburg long ago, I saw places and got current context in a new way. I initially thought the price was high, but in retrospect it was worth every cent. I would specifically choose to go... More

My wife and I sought a way to work a trip to the wilds of South Africa during a business trip to Johannesburg and Cape Town and, boy, did we make the right decision. We arrived mid-day and were picked up by Janet at the airport. Our room was waiting at the lodge at Pilanesburg and an evening tour had... More

After looking through several different guided wildlife tour options on TripAdvisor, I settled on Ekala Eco Tours. Am I glad I did! A work colleague and I wanted to experience the wildlife of South Africa as we had never been to this amazing country before. So, we flew in a few days early on a business trip and booked a... More
