We were very lucky to have our airline change flights, causing us to be in Johannesburg for 2 nights at the start of our safari. This gave us the opportunity to do a tour of Johannesburg and the Cradle of Humankind. On our way home we also had a day layover in Johannesburg which allowed us to visit Soweto and... More

I spent four days with Ekala Tours during my recent visit to South Africa. Two of the days were in the company of Janet, the balance, Malcolm was my guide. Each of the days provided very different experiences, ranging from a visit to SOWETO, Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum, to walking with Lions, to visiting Maropeng and Sterkfontein Caves,...

Malcolm met us at the airport and hosted two days of tours, allowing us to see everything we really wanted to see in Johannesburg area in two short days. What made the experience special was his knowledge of, and passion and love for his country. He also included stops we might not have thought of on our own. We loved... More

Better late than never...my boyfriend and I booked 2 tours with Ekala where Janet was our guide for both days in May 2014. For the first tour, it was a full day Johannesburg tour which incorporated SOWETO as well. On the second day, we combined Ukutula and the Elephant Sanctuary. Janet provided us with so much information and insight into... More

We feel so lucky to have met Malcolm, our tour guide for the half-day we had in Johannesburg. If anything, he made us wish we'd spent much more time in this interesting, historic city! Malcolm picked us up at the airport and spent five hours driving us around town and showing us as many highlights as he could before sundown... More

This is our first visit to South Africa, and of course also the first to Johannesburg. It was such a wonderful trip. It completely changed our impression of South Africa. We went on private tour with Ekala Eco Tours. We were accompanied by Janet. She was so marvelous and friendly. She was good at driving and knew the directions very... More

We had one free day in Johannesburg before starting a safari, and we wanted to see as much of the local area as possible. We knew that we wanted to visit Pretoria, Soweto and the Apartheid Museum with a focus on the history of South Africa. With that input, Malcolm constructed a great tour that showed us more than we...

I was only in Johannesburg for 4 days and they were all filled with tours accompanied by Janet and Linda. It was a completely customizable experience and I was able to do and see everything that I wanted to in my short visit. Janet and Linda were both so nice and welcoming, I had such a great time! Janet was... More

I spent one day with Janet and one day with Malcolm. Both are really passionnate by their country. I've learned a lot about South Africa and Jo'burg talking with them. They made me feel really comfortable and were really kind with my 4 years old kid. The visits we've done were appreciate by my kid and myself: JO'B + Rhino... More

Sometimes words are just not adequate to describe something so great. There is no way that my review will be able to convey what an amazing time we had, but I will try. We were looked after from the minute we arrived in Johannesburg. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport. In between, we were taken on... More
