Tour Pace & Walking
Our Family tours are dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of specific bird families. Whilst we will certainly not ignore other bird families and species, we will not be going out of our way to find them. These tours are slower paced, allowing for as much time as appropriate to be spent in hides, feeders or similar such sites. There are rarely early starts or late finishes to the day. These tours are suitable for all birding interests and experience levels, avid photographers and in some cases can accommodate those with mobility or health challenges.
Accommodation
comfortable
Ease of Birding
moderate, with some tricky species
Photographic Opportunities
good to very good

A fantastic tour as usual, well organised and great guides. Both guides were absolutely amazing and really gave us the best chance possible to see birds.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank Rockjumper for a fantastic trip ! Bobby Wilcox and our local guide were the best!! This pair of professionals worked very hard to take care of all of us and make sure each person got to see every bird!! Together we had close to 400 bird species! An outstanding number! We had great Accommodations and good food! We were birding everyday from 5:45am until 6 pm!! Just can’t thank you enough!! And after talking with Bobby Wilcox about the pantanal trip coming up, I’m sure I’m going to go!! Looking forward to future trips with Rockjumper!!!

A wonderful tour with stunning birds, a great group of fellow travellers and a fabulous local guide.

I can say it was a great tour. Forrest and Richard were fantastic leaders. I would bird with them anywhere.

Bobby Wilcox was a good guide. Calm and knowledgeable. The food and accommodation were both very good, Better than I expect.
