A big thank you for rescuing an activity that didn't run to plan.

We had booked well in advance for the flight over the desert, Deadvlei and Skeleton Coast with the vlei being of significance to my Geologist partner. The other passengers booked were so late arriving, that element of the flight had to be cancelled due to VFR restrictions. Then they had the gall to waste more time arguing with the staff about who would sit where in the aircraft. Some people!

The lovely people at Eagle Eye were so professional and got us up in the air in time to enjoy an amazing flight despite the gesticulations of the late complainers. Nicely done guys.

Even thought it might a bit expensive, I would like to recommend the scenic route going down until Sossuslvei and coming back up on the coast. The views you will get on that flight a simply amazing !!!!

We couldn't see the landscape clearly due to too high altitude and the same direction and the pilot made us feel unsafety since he craned his neck to look forward to another plane flying with us. It looks like he's not sure about our route and uncomfortable with the flying. The people on the left side only could see the ocean but not the famous desert meets the sea. The pilot explained to us that we were run out of time so that he couldn't change the angle for the left side passengers. We did show up on time and all of us pay the same money but with different experience. Besides, he pointed out his flying hours is 600hours less than the other pilot so he could not lower the altitude and change angle comfortably. The quality of each flight has too much variance. I sincerely do NOT recommend it.

We booked 2 seats for the Sossusvlei flight in April 2018. Upon booking, we specifically asked if Eagle Eye Aviation could guarantee that we could both sit in the middle of the aircraft. We said that we would not book if it was not the case. When we arrived at the aircraft (after having paid 100%), we asked again to be seated in the middle. The pilot told us that it was impossible for safety reasons. Either my husband or I had to sit at the back. My husband decided that he would be the one going at the back as I was pregnant. He ended up throwing up his entire lunch after half of the trip. We have sent an email to Eagle Eye Aviation asking for a discount as they could not commit to what they had guaranteed upon booking. We never received an answer. Before deciding to book with them, just make sure it is not a problem for you to sit at the back as you cannot trust what they tell you in advance.
