Very much recommended tours in Johannesburg and Pretoria (and more).
A lot to learn even at our n. visit in South Africa; very interesting.
For our next trip to S.A., we know already what to do in Johannesburg with Ekala

Janet provided an insightful and thought-provoking tour of Johannesburg during my 8-hour layover. Her 15 years experience, coupled with her down-to-earth personality, made for an enjoyable day. Janet's easy rapport with locals, especially in Soweto, gave me a deeper understanding of local inhabitants. At the...More

Ekala prefers to deal directly with clients, not on public platforms. Our tours/safaris/packages are private and professional only. This with an experienced and registered guide. Structured around your actual requirement’s. To do this we require a full understanding of requirements, including full clarity on arrival and departure. International or domestic flights have a significant bearing on time that will be available. Not always a good idea to post these on a public platform. Any enquiry we receive by e-mail – gets responded to within 24 hours.

Our tours/safaris are all private only. We do not supply the mixed group – shuttle type tours/safaris. We feel there is little value in these. Specifically where you have only one or two days available for this with limited available time.
As such Ekala Eco Tours would not be able to supply as you have detailed.
We do prefer to deal directly with clients, not on public platforms. If we were to quote – private safari - the first item we are going to ask is the collection and drop off details. Not always a good idea to post these on a public platform. Please contact us directly to be able to advise/quote correctly. This would however be for a private safari/tour.
