Very well organised, and Lesotho opened our hearts and minds. We have a young family and we loved the guided tour to Lesotho. With a young family we had lots of well arranged stops on the way, with drinks and food. Always key! Our guide was so knowledgeable and we learnt so much from him. Great company and we would highly recommend them. Transfers were all seamless.

I joined the Zululand 3 day/4 night birding tour that Roof of Africa offers. The trip exceeded my expectations, both when it came to the birding and the accommodation and the general friendliness and helpfulness of the tour operator. We were accompanied by Emile from Roof of Africa and Ivor who is a guide from one of the parks that we visited. They both did everything in their power to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves and maximized our adventure. For example, even though the first day was rainy, something which the tour operator cannot control, they still helped us locate almost a hundred birds. Just on day 1! By the end of the trip, we ended up seeing over 180 birds - for a novice birder like me that's fantastic because most of those were lifers. Even the most experienced birders on our trip still got to add dozens of lifers because Emile and Ivor did their utmost to ensure that we saw all the "special" birds in the region. Because they were flexible and willing to cater to our needs, we got to experience sightings that other game vehicles didn't - for example on one of our morning trips, we got to see two lionesses kill and eat a warthog. Not a bad sighting for a group of birders! The entire trip was well-coordinated, and Emile ensured that all our needs were catered for. The lodging was great, and the food and snacks on the trip were delicious. Not that I'm surprised though: I recently did one of Roof of Africa's Sani Pass tours and everything was top notch, so I was happy to do this birding tour with them. I look forward to other adventures with Roof of Africa in the future.

THANK YOU EMILE for the excellent tour up Sani Pass. The tour was thoroughly enjoyed, and your 'entertaining knowledge sharing' , your patience and your superb driving skills was impressive. We commend you for your high level of service which makes Roof of Africa Tours highly recommended. Having fun in the snow was the highlight (this is now ticked off from my wife's bucket list ). We commend you for your service excellence and certainly look forward to another tour with you in the future.

Simply no better way to do this trip than with Roof of Africa Tours. Peter, our guide was so insightful and he enriched our experience. He mastered the gruelling drive up that incredibly tricky pass with care and attention. Peter participated in the experience at the Village ... he was like a 4D history book. Absolutely loved it. Thank you Roof if Africa and especially Peter, our guide. Comfy vehicle, great price, and well worth it. Top Service. 100 Stars!!

Mondli was our tour guide and what a knowledgeable and fantastic guide. We will definitely request him (if we can) the next time we do the trip. He went out of his way to make it comfortable, enjoyable and we learnt so much about the area. The vehicles are well cared for and clean. We've done this trip with another operator before, but will absolutely book with Roof of Africa Tours going forward. After all, this is not a trip you only do once.
