    Jeremy Exelby has worked in education, industry, and travel over the years, with the natural world always being an inspiration to him. In particular, plants became his first passion when he was a teen, with birds catching up to his interest levels over the years. As a result, Jeremy has lead birding tours all over Southern Africa, occasionally also doing trips on his own or with family. In 2016, he also had a friendly competition going with his wife and son for who could see the most Southern African birds.

EG, South Africa

Jeremy was fabulous - great general natural history knowledge and laid-back attitude.

MA, South Africa

Jeremy's botanical skills were excellent.

MA, South Africa 2018

Jeremy Exelby was well-beyond excellent, extremely knowledgeable and did a terrific job of seeing to everyone's individual needs.

JH & LH, South Africa - Cape Wildflowers 2018

Jeremy Exelby is the perfect guide for this. The fact he didn¹t know all birds (mainly larks, cisticolas!) and had to consult a bird book, was NOT an issue with any of us. In fact, that made us discuss ID as a group, making us better birders, giving us a stake in ID - not at all a negative, especially for this tour. This was refreshing, rather than just accepting an ID by an RJ guide. We love his honesty and integrity.

MF & JF, South Africa 2018

Jeremy Exelby was an excellent guide; his knowledge of the local plants and animals was fantastic. He led the group in a very professional way, taking everyone's considerations into account. We had a fabulous time and saw some wonderful flowers and birds.

DH & JH - South Africa: Birds, Wine & Big Game 2019

This was a huge change for me booking a more laid back tour instead of my usual hardcore birding from morning till night. I loved the change and was able to relax more and enjoy the company of the other participants and our guide, Jeremy Exelby. We were still able to get a very good number of birds interwoven with some wonderful wine tasting and excellent meals. Last but not least the last half was dedicated to Big game viewing along with birding and incredible scenery. All in all a huge success and a big thanks to a Jeremy for his enthusiasm, kindness and excellent people skills. He was a joy to be around.
