I had one day free and this tour was just perfect. The guides were so informative, helpful and thoughtful, really appreciated them telling me some history and gave me a real insight into the country. Would highly recommend them!

We had a 24 hour layover in Joburg so arranged a tour with Malcomb. At Ekala's suggestion we arranged for a pick up from our flight into Joburg. Malcomb was waiting as we exited baggage claim and navigated us to an ATM and through the airport and the drove us to our hotel for checkin. We then began an exhaustive... More

My poor planning gave me little time to visit Johannesburg. Malcolm made the very most of a morning, though. We began after breakfast with a journey through Soweto, stopping at President Mandela's Soweto home (incredibly moving -- have a handkerchief ready), Bishop Tutu's home, the Hector Pieterson Memorial, Walter Susulu Square and the Freedom Charter in Kliptown (all also very...

My mother and I went on two tours while staying in Johannesburg. First on a safari in Pilanesberg National Park with Janet & Linda. We had an incredible time! Great day for a safari, as soon as we arrived we saw a huge variety of animals - from a 'rhino beetle' to a herd of elephants passing through the park... More

In addition, we were able to see many key sites in the city including their "Supreme Court", several Mandela sites, overlooks of the... More

I recently had the pleasure of working with the Ekala team for a very quick 24-hour stop in Johannesburg, for both guiding and overnight accommodations at their Ekala Guest Farm. Malcolm, Janet, and Linda are consummate professionals and very down-to-earth, friendly people. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, both Malcolm and Janet contain an encyclopedic knowledge of Johannesburg history, as... More
