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.
What an amazing time we had! Our family went on a 12 day long safari with EOA. Eleimentaita, Baringo, Naivasha, Maji Moto, and The Masai Mara were unbelievable. Our driver Maxwell was very very good. His knowledge was unreal and his eyes could find anything! I have no idea how he does it. He found us the "big five" (Elephant, Rhino, Cape Buffalo, … read more What an amazing time we had! Our family went on a 12 day long safari with EOA. Eleimentaita, Baringo, Naivasha, Maji Moto, and The Masai Mara were unbelievable. Our driver Maxwell was very very good. His knowledge was unreal and his eyes could find anything! I have no idea how he does it. He found us the "big five" (Elephant, Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Lion) in only 4 hours... We saw two wildebeest crossings, a cheetah hunting a warthog, and lions mating. Fantastic lodges, great food and a wonderful guide! Highly recommend Eyes on Africa, and highly recommend Maxwell!

Eyes on Africa's driver/guides took excellent care of us -- George in Kenya, Alex in Tanzania -- the vehicles (land cruisers) were good, and the itinerary is well thought out. The highlight was the Maasai Mara reserve, one of the most amazing experiences we've ever had. We saw lionesses with their cubs, a lioness hunting and killing a wildebeest during a river crossing, cheetahs and pythons sunning themselves, baby elephants and baby giraffes nursing, and much more (I'm still going through all my pictures). George was an excellent, very hard-working guide, and we loved staying at the Matira Bush Camp in the Mara reserve, and also enjoyed the Maji Moto eco camp and the Mara West camp outside the reserve. Crossing into Tanzania, we first went to Speck Bay Lodge on Lake Victoria, a nice, luxurious change of pace for a night, and then went into the Serengeti National Park. We enjoyed the park, and George also did a great job helping us see all kinds of wild life (prides of lions sunning themselves on huge rocks; trios of lionesses hunting; ostriches mating; many more). We also really enjoyed our night at the Sopa Lodge on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater. We did not like the Ikoma Bush Camp outside the Serengeti Park; the food was really awful, I would not recommend it to anyone. Eyes on Africa: Roman was very easy to work with planning and booking our trip, communicating by email and skype. In addition to the 10-day safari, he was also helpful booking stays in Nairobi and Zanzibar before and after our Safari. I got sick for a couple days while in Nairobi, and the Eyes on Africa staff were attentive, checking up on me after we'd started on our Safari. We did have trouble with our flight from Arusha to Zanzibar at the end of the Safari: the local airline (Precision Air) switched the departure airport and time for the flight, and Eyes on Africa did not get us to the airport on time (and by then Precision Air had downgraded the size of the aircraft, bumped us from the flight, and lied to us about departure times) . . .so we missed the flight and ended up spending 8 hours stuck in a small airport trying to find alternative arrangements. Omar from Eyes on Africa wasn't able to find us an alternative, so we missed an evening in Zanzibar, but Omar did stay in touch with us until we finally got on a flight to Zanzibar late that night. We always prefer to work with a travel company based n the countries where we're traveling, and I'm glad we picked Eyes on Africa. All in all, this was one of the best trips we've ever taken.

Roman put together an initial itinerary for us and then adjusted it according to our expressed requests. We had little knowledge of Kenya and no pre-concieved notion of what we should include in our first trip to Africa - which had been on our 'bucket list' for some time. Roman helped make us feel confident in his itinerary and did a great job at allieving our concerns about safety and security (thank you Roman...we might not have come otherwise). Suffice it to say he did not dissappoint. Our trip included stops at various places (Lake Baringo, Navasha, Maji Moto, and Maasai Mara) and they were all great (really liked our 2 days at Lake Baringo). Maxwell was our personal guide for our entire 12 night stay and he did a magnificent job. He was friendly, funny, interesting, informative, and an exceptional game drive guide. Thank you so much Maxwell...you made us all feel very safe and enabled us to have a trip of a lifetime! If you're thinking about a trip to Kenya, I highly recommend using Eyes-on-Africa...they really were great! Visited August 2014
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.
