We are a family of 4 with a 10 year old and 14 year old from Canada. We were looking for a mix of safari and cultural experiences with walks and biking to break up the drives. We had a Skype conversation with EOA so we could talk about our ideas and they could give us their ideas and thoughts. From there EOA developed an itinerary for us to review and make some further choices. They were always quick to respond, efficient, included detailed information and costs. They plan well and are very organized. You can trust you will get at an unforgetable trip created as you wish. The accomodation was perfect for us, each place was unique in it's own way, with it's on personality. Many great locations. The food was good everywhere we stayed. EOA can choose just the right accomodation to suit you, they know all the options. The guides are great and really make the safari experience with their expertise and knowledge. Our guide, George, in Kenya was excellent. We enjoyed his company and learned so much about Kenya and its wildlife from him. He gave us so many experiences we will treasure, up close and personal with so many animals, bush breakfasts, sundowners, stories... Eyes on Africa is the company to go with if you are planning any kind of trip to East Africa. They will make it an unforgetable experience! Thank you Roman and Omar Visited August 2014

We arranged the holiday at fairly short notice last December, and offer our thanks to Laura for her skill in organizing flights, accommodation etc to our very exacting requirements including being in a specific place (Lake Nakuru) for the morning of the Annular Solar Eclipse. From previous experience, to complete all the required transactions with only 1 phone call and 3 emails was exceptional. From the moment of our arrival at Nairobi until the moment of our departure we were looked after by George Siamento our guide and driver from Eyes on Africa Safaris. We consider this to have been a most excellent piece of luck. George is a warm character, helpful and personable, probably the best and most knowledgeable guide we have met in recent years. He maintained our itinerary for the trip and also provided variations as we requested thus making the trip, both interesting and relaxing. His skill in spotting game from 2 miles or so was amazing and provided such great photographic opportunities that we were regularly the first and sometimes the only ones on the scene. If we had had one, we are sure that our tick list would have been completely full with bonus marks awarded particularly for being so close to some of the big cats and away from other vehicles at the same time. Our best moment came on Friday 15th January when we arrived just before dawn at Baboon Lookout facing east and overlooking Lake Nakuru. The three of us were alone except for a few baboons for almost half an hour before others began to arrive. The Lake was like glass and the dawn light provided a magical and unforgettable pre-eclipse spectacle. All thanks to George for locating and taking us to this superb viewing platform. The solar eclipse was excellent, a ring of fire is rarely seen. Lake Nakuru and the eclipse were our specific holiday highlight, but mention must be made also of the other places we visited. Beautiful Crater Lake, especially the game walk with Elijah on the first afternoon, walking so close to so many wild animals generates a really good feeling. Sarova Lion Hill Lodge was good, especially the food. Maji Moto – along with a Dutch couple, we renamed it Magic Moto. The Masai looking after us are wonderful people, fun, helpful and informative – especially Sankale Ntutu, who also has a keen sense of humor and how Nakola the chef managed to produce such food in his small kitchen amazed us. Masai Mara – the camp was not as we had expected, with rows of tents overlooking the plains, but secluded and in the bush thus giving it a genuine feel of the wild. Overall we had a great time but all too soon the holiday was over and it was time to return home. We have no doubt that we will return to Africa again, most likely for the Total Solar Eclipse 3 Nov 2013 perhaps earlier one can never know. If it had been possible, we would have stayed longer in Kenya but our resources did not allow for it this time. When our safari came to an end, we realized that we had come to regard George not just as our driver/guide but as a long lost and newly found friend, for it felt as though we had known him for ever. We will try and maintain contact and also will perhaps consider what we could do for the school at Maji Moto. Our thanks again to all involved, but especially to our friend George.

Eyes on Africa provided us with a four day safari to Samburu, accommodating our travel needs to be picked up in Nairobi and dropped off in Eldoret, where we live. Ben and Patrick did a good job as our guides/drivers. We spent one night at the Umoja Women's village cottages, run by the incredible Rebecca. While these accommodations aren't luxurious, they are very affordable. Hearing Rebecca's story and visiting her village of safety for abandoned Samburu women and children was a cultural highlight of our trip, and very warmly recommended. We spent the next two days at the Sopa Samburu, which was lovely. There were very few visitors, and the staff was warm and very accommodating. A lovely stay for 14 people, ranging in age from 10 to 70. Eyes on Africa tries to go beyond the standard safari experience and provide their guests with rich cultural experiences and environmentally conscious tours. I especially appreciate the social awareness they bring to the safari circuit. If you're heading to Samburu, be sure to ask them to take you to Rebecca's village! The Umoja women will give you a warm and authentic welcome, and don't forget to look over their collection of handmade beaded jewelry. Stunning. Visited December 2014
We would like to thank you for making our Kenyan holiday a great one. Both Peter and Eric were terrific and your organisation, professionalism and communication was exemplary. We will certainly recommend you to our colleagues and friends. Thanks again.
Where better to experience the local culture than an authentic Maasai village? Maji Moto Eco Camp is a small, environmentally sensitive retreat, owned by EYES ON AFRICA SAFARIS and operated by Masai people, which our guests can not praise.
