“Best safari ever!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Went on a 7 day safari that this company made specially for us according to our wishes.
We had an amazing guide that really taught us a lot not just about animals but basically everything from the country of Kenya to flowers, plants but of course animals!
Saw 4 out of Big 5 the first day.
Our guide found lepards before everybody else which gave us the best pictures to bring home.
2 meters from a lion, 3 meters from lions eating a wildebeast!! Crocodiles who caught a wildebeast crossing the Mara river.

If you want a true adventure with proffesonals, choose this company!!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We couldn’t be happier with our choice to use Eyes on Africa Safaris in Kenya to plan our trip. The communication and service we received before, during and after the trip was outstanding. Mariam was our contact person from EOAS and it was a pleasure working with her. She was always quick to respond to my questions.

We chose the Walk with Masai to Mara - Trekking Safari 7 Days. We spent 2 nights at Maji Moto, 2 ½ days trekking, 2 nights in bush camps and finally, 2 nights at the JK Mara Tented Camp with game drives and a balloon ride planned while there. The itinerary was perfect for us. We enjoyed all of the camps and felt that everyone made us feel very welcomed. The service was impeccable. I underestimated my physical strength and wasn’t able to complete the trekking portion so I drove with our driver (thank you, Musa) to the camps. My son did do the trekking and thought that it was an exceptional experience. After hearing his stories and seeing his photographs, I was very disappointed that I wasn’t able to do the trekking portion. The game drives were fantastic. Musa went out of his way to ensure that we were able to see all of the animals that we hoped to see.

Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank Musa. He served as our driver/guide and friend. We knew from the start that we were going to like having Musa as our guide. He was very positive, outgoing and friendly. His knowledge about Kenya is exceptional. Listening to him talk, we could tell how much he loves Kenya. Learning about a country from someone who really loves the country, is so much better than learning from someone who is just feeding you facts. Musa was invaluable in other ways as well. One example is the day that I couldn’t find my wallet that held all of our money and passports. I immediately went into panic mode. Musa stepped in, calmed me down, and before I knew it we found the money and passports. I can’t say enough good things about Musa.

I would not hesitate to use Eyes on Africa again. We’re hoping to be able to return to Kenya in 2015 and will definitely be contacting you to make the arrangements.

“Great holidays”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

My stay in Kenya was just perfect. My boyfriend and I did a safari through Tsavo East and West as well as Amboseli. Afterwards we drove to Mida Creek and finished our trip with a stay in a beach resort at the Northern coast of Mombasa. Everything was very well organized, all transfers were on time, the accommodation was diversified and all in good condition. Our guide on safari was very well educated about the nature and the animals and we've had a great time together with him. He has been always on time and a very friendly and funny person.

Thanks to the excellent organization of Eyes on Africa Safari the whole trip went very smooth. Thanks again guys for every thing.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This was our first Safari, but it was exceptional: The organization through Eyes on Africa was very efficient and thanks to Roman we were able to get a good offer extremely fast. His suggestions for the iternary improved our trip. We spent 2 nights in Masai Mara in the Matira Bush Camp (Standard Tents) which was comfortable and perfect for our needs. It was inside the park, allowing us to have a head-start and observe animals early in the morning (before breakfast under a lonely tree amidst a herd of wildebeest).

The driver George Siamito is increadibly knowledgable, friendly and helpful. With his vast knowledge he was able to show us the best places in the reserve and was often there before the other drivers to observe the animals perfectly. Thanks to the Land Cruiser we were able to travel on roads where other vehicles would have gotten stuck in the mud. We even managed to see a leopard and George arrived exactly at the right moment and placed the car such that it would approach us directly, without disturbing the animal. He knew not only the big animals, but also all the birds and plants, making our tour extremely instructional. We hope to repeat this experience in the future!

Dear Hannes,
It makes us all so happy and proud when we get this kind of a review. Especially knowing the fact that your wife is a biologist… Thank you George Siamito for making their trip unforgettable.
Concerning little advices that we give when suggesting someone’s itinerary is simply our own love and years of experience crafting custom-made Safaris round East Africa. Thank you once again for traveling with us and looking forward taking you out on safari again. Roman

“great safari to the Masai Mara”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Eyes on Africa organized a perfect safari to Masai Mara for us. Thanks to our guide who gave us plenty of information on the animals, nature and land, we saw the big five and the wildbeast crossing Mara river and some rare animals such as serval cat and bat-eared fox on one single day which was very impressing.
We want to thank the team very much for organizing a great day!
