My husband and I spent a very short 3 days touring JoBurg and Blyde River Canyon with Ekala Eco Tours. After touring JoBurg with Malcom, which was a very informative and interesting tour, we spent the night at Ekala guest farm (a warm, peaceful and beautiful home ) and had the most delicious home made meal of all our stay...

We booked a tour of Jo'burg, Soweto and the Apartheid museum with Ekala Tours. Janet was a fantastic tour guide and answered all of our questions - as ill informed as some of them may have been. An unexpected torrential downpour cut our tour a bit short as we had to be back at our hotel at a specific time... More

We did a city tour which included a drive through Soweto, Mandela's house and the Apartheid Museum, etc. and some other drive bye's that were not as interesting. We learned a lot about the history of Apartheid which was great, but I might have chosen a different tour if I had to do it over again. Like the cradle of... More

In November, 2014, I had one day only to tour Johannesburg. Janet, who is both knowledgable and passionate about South Africa, chose the key sights. We saw Soweto, Constitution Hill, the Apartheid Museum and various other places of interest in and around the city. Janet shared her personal history along with the country's history which added to the depth of... More

We were so fortunate to have Malcolm be our tour guide for Jo'Burg/Soweto. He picked us up at the airport and we had a great tour that afternoon. Since we stayed at their lodge we were fortunate to meet Linda and Janet too. They could not have been nicer. The next day we had a full day tour and learned... More

We booked Janet and Malcolm to take us around Jo'berg, Pilanesberg National Park, lion park and a few other day trips. Their knowledge of South Africa is amazing. If you would like some in-depth views from people on the inside who have lived through arpartied and witnessed the changes over the years as well as a sound local knowledge of... More

What a find Ekala is! We were privileged to have Janet as our guide for the day. We spent the day with her doing sights in Jo'Berg and Soweto. Acquaintances run up to Janet to greet her. You can tell she is held in very high regard. I can recommend her enough. We intend to return and Ekala will definitely... More

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
