Tour Pace & Walking
Our Mega tours are very fast-paced birding adventures designed for the dedicated lister and serious birder. The focus of the tour is to see as many of the endemics and area specials as possible in our given time. In order to cover the necessary route to maximise the species list we tend to spend a single night at most sites and travel large distances. There is very little down time aside from that spent driving from one site to the next. These tours are not suitable for dedicated or avid photographers; inexperienced or new birders; as well as anyone with serious mobility or health challenges.
Accommodation
good
Ease of Birding
moderate with some tricky species

Sonya and I really appreciate all of your hard work….that truly was one of our trips of a lifetime. And that is saying something since that bar is constantly getting raised by all of our travel. Rockjumper can definitely count us in as repeat guests and I would count it as good fortune if you were our guide again.

Daniel Danckwerts was a delight; we very much enjoyed being with him. His bird skills are excellent and he does a good job getting people "on the bird." He was consistently pleasant, polite and upbeat. A highlight of the trip was the visit to his family's farm and meeting his family.

Thank you for a wonderful trip! Thank you, Andre Bernon, for all you did to make it so memorable!

Glen was very organised and knowledgeable. He gave clear directions as to what we would be doing the following day. He has a very calm and friendly manner. He has extremely good hearing and the ability to both hear the birds and point them out. He was very helpful to assist me when I did not see where the bird was. I would certainly like to travel with him again.

Greg is an excellent birder and worked hard to find as many species as possible, and also to make sure that everyone saw them. He was very genial company and took great care of everyone.
