South Africa in Print comments about Latrobe that 'He has left an important volume of travels with illustrations second only to those of Burchell'. Colvin in his introduction to Mendelssohn's 'Bibliography' describes the Journals as 'written with much sweet piety and simplicity of spirit, yet (he) shows shrewdness of observation and a fine common sense.'
