We were an hour late meeting Malcolm from our hotel for the tour and he took it in his stride and adapted it for us accordingly. Malcolm was so knowledgeable and as others have said, passionate about his city and this was reflected in the tour he gave us. I have had several tours of Joburg and Soweto with different... More

Malcom gave us a great tour of Soweto/Johannesburg. We didn't have much time, but he went out of his way to make sure we saw as much as we could. Malcom is very passionate about the history of the city and that makes the tour even better. Ekala Eco Tours made everything very convenient for us from pick up to... More

Look no further: if you want an incredible tour guide, knowledgeable, insightful with a relaxed manner, I strongly recommend Ekala Eco Tours. Linda was our guide, and we knew we were fortunate to have her. I looked on Trip Advisor for a local guide of joburg and soweto and found great reviews about Ekala. Linda lived up to the rave...

I spent three days with them. I stayed at the lodge and booked several tours with them. From booking to departure everyone was fantastic. They created an itinerary that was exactly what I was looking for. I was traveling by myself and they were great tour guides that made my trip fun. I plan on using them again on my... More

I only had two days for an animal safari during my first trip to South Africa before I had to travel to Cape Town for a work-related conference. I couldn't have chosen better than I did with Ekala. The two day animal safari in Pilanesberg Park was terrific, but the time spent with Malcolm, Janet, and Linda are what made... More

We learnt more in a weekend touring Pretoria and Johannesburg with Malcolm than we could ever have imagined. What we thought may be a regular sight seeing tour turned out to be an insightful, detailed and intellectual tutorial spanning the history and culture of SA from Voortrekker to Mandela, and even Pistorius and just about everything in between. Thanks, Malcolm,... More

My wife and I went on four tours with Ekala and stayed at their guest house for four nights. We had a fantastic time. Malcolm and Janet are experts on the area, having lived there all of their lives. They are very knowledgeable about the history and sites of Johannesburg and really know the animals and birds in the parks... More
