We had a full day tour of the Johannesburg area and we saw it all. The Apartheid Museum was probably the best part of the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

In October 2015, Ms. Janet took a friend and I to the Elephant and Monkey Sanctuaries. We had a wonderful day. Janet was full of facts about the local area and made us feel welcomed to Africa. Upon a return trip to Africa in June, I chose Ekala Eco Tours a second time because I had been so please with... More

We used Ekala on two days for separate tours in Johannesburg, one day in Soweto and another in diamond country. Janet, one of the co-owners, was our guide, and expertly guided us through our entire adventure. Janet is absolutely familiar with Soweto, is on a first-name basis with many residents, knows the history and and understands the community perfectly, and... More

Ms. Janet and her trusty guide (her daughter) were the best tour guides. Not only did we have a fabulous day in the Pilanesburg park but the informative history to and from the hotel was exceptional. Thank you for the memories. I so wish I could make it back soon.

Malcolm did a great job of showing Connie and I the Johannesburg area with the history of apartheid, the Cradle of Humankind, and visits to a local diamond and gold mines as highlights of our trip to Africa. I cannot recommend Malcolm too highly as he guided us through the complexities and interactions of the mining industry with Johannesburg's history... More

With a 6 hour layover in Johannesburg, we were thrilled to see so much with Malcolm. We expressed interest in seeing the Apartheid Museum, and other pertinent historical areas. Malcolm was there when we arrived, and he led a detailed, comprehensive, and fascinating tour of Soweto, Johannesburg, and the Apartheid Museum during our time. He is incredibly knowledgeable, with a... More

Janet from Ekala Eco tours was a fantastic guide. Coming to pick up us at our hotel in the the early hours of the morning to allow us to get to Pilanesburg Game Reserve for a sunrise trip through the park. In the afternoon Janet drove us on a private tour through the reserve which was brilliant. She knew all... More

Our guide Malcolm customized a 5 hour visit to Pretoria for our group of 4 on short notice. Malcolm provided us with an excellent review of the sights, the history and the back story to much of what we saw and experienced. He took all our questions and handled them adeptly and clearly knows his stuff. Would certainly work with... More

From our early morning pick up, to our drop off two days later Janet was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. AND we got to see Black Rhino, twice!
