Stride Review

They offer a variety of birding and wildlife focused tours around the world.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Even though they are focused on birding, they offer a lot of variation in the types to tours you can take - including tours that include a wider wildlife focus. They offer scheduled tours and private tours so you can choose which kind of experience you like. Among these you can find tours that focus almost entirely on tracking one specific species or a tour more geared toward other wildlife and the outdoor experience of hiking and enjoying time on the trails.

Who Travels With Them?

Birding enthusiasts, this is the company for you! Many birding companies tend to be super location focused, however Rockjumper offers tours around the world giving you a lot to choose from when finding your next birding tour. Their tours will be especially popular among older travelers

Where Do They Operate?

They offer 300 different tours to 100 destinations all around the world. Even birding cruises are available!

Why Travel With Them?

Their focus on wildlife as the central focal point means that they also pay a great deal of attention to conservation and responsible travel. This appeals greatly to their customers as well, so if you are a traveler with an interest in traveling in an eco-friendly manner, they are for you. They are also a great starting place for beginners as they offer multiple kinds of birding tour, from beginners to more specific and advanced.

From Rockjumper Birding

Rockjumper Birding Tours is a dedicated bird tours company specializing in quality birdwatching holidays and wildlife safaris throughout the world, guided by passionate and experienced professional tour leaders. Our portfolio of 250 different birding tours encompasses 100 destinations, including some of the most breathtaking and biologically diverse places on our planet. While our quest is first and foremost to deliver the ultimate birding experience, our bird tours are also educational, fun and excellent value for money!

To read about our different tour categories, which include not only birding tours but also photographic and mammal safaris. To go straight to our tour destinations page, conveniently divided into continental regions and countries.

Our bird tour leaders are all passionate birders and accomplished tour coordinators who take great joy in sharing their birding experiences with others. Although many of our tours are guided by full time Rockjumper leaders, we also use some of the most accomplished regional leaders across the globe. This ensures that you always get the best possible guide for the tour of your choice. Whilst we guarantee that our leaders have superb birding skills, our tour leaders also strive to be personable, professional, friendly, attentive and dedicated to delivering a rewarding, educational, enjoyable and memorable birding experience!

Our leader to guest ratio is one of the best in the bird tour industry and most of our tours have a maximum of eight participants, giving our guests a very personalized tour experience. For some destinations, however, larger groups are necessary, and on these tours we provide two leaders with an absolute maximum of 14 participants. The only exception to this is on some ship cruises where larger groups are unavoidable.

Our scheduled tours are generally designed for the keen birder, though the pace varies from tour to tour. For example, our Cape Wildflowers, Birding & Big Game tour is a relaxed birding adventure with much time dedicated to exploring the tapestry of spectacular wildflowers that grace the Cape region of South Africa. We also include the salient highlights of every region we visit, be it the Taj Mahal and Tigers in India, Jaguars and Giant Otters in Brazil, or the Sphinx and Pyramids in Egypt. Our Photographic and Wildlife tours are however focused on these core aspects of each destination, rather than on birding per se.
