‪Wild Eye took me on my first Kenyan photographic safari and I cannot imagine a better experience. The whole process—from my first inquiry to the end of my travels—went smoothly. Every single person I interacted with was friendly and kind. Of course, the week-long Mara safari itself was incredible. The hosts, Alistair and Trevor, possessed both excellent photographic and wildlife behavior knowledge which made capturing challenging action possible, even with my nascent skillset. (The tricked-out vehicles gave us lots of room to move around and take steady shots.) I also loved the Maasai camp staff—they were beautiful people who made my stay special. I was sad to leave. Now I just have to decide which of Wild Eye’s journeys to sign up for next.‬

‪Another amazing trip with Wild Eye - my sixth with the company and second to the Mara camp for Migration Week. Of course, animal sightings were great - how can they not be in the Mara? Although only one wildebeest crossing, that didn't really matter. Favorites were a cheetah and her 4 cubs, a multitude of lions and leopards, plus a serval! And all the usual suspects...

At dinner the last night, we were each asked what the highlight of the week was, whether an animal, event or whatever. I struggled to put feelings into words.

It’s the people – the 10 other guests that I enjoyed being with so much and the new-found friendships. It’s the staff, who make every day so warm and welcoming as well as our amazing drivers. (Ken!) It’s the photographic guides – Mike and Andrew – who share their assistance, knowledge and creativity so willingly and abundantly. It’s being surrounded by nature 24/7 and the near constant bellowing of hippos in the river. It’s being cut off from the outside world as much as we want. It’s my small, but comfortable tent that keeps me safe at night and the outdoor bucket shower that is so exhilarating! It’s the lions and cheetahs and leopards and the serval that was right by our vehicle! Where do I start… and where do I end? I can't wait to go back and next year is a long way off.

Tip: For all of us in the US, this is a long way to go for just a week. The amazing staff (Judy, et al) will put together an extension either before or after the week in the Mara to make for a seamless, longer trip. Just ask, give your budget, and she'll take care of all the arrangements for you! So great!‬

‪The Best of Mana Pools was my fourth Wild Eye Safari, the third in Africa. Wild Eye has truly changed the way I see the world!!! I know when I travel with WE I am in MY HAPPY PLACE!!!

On this Best of Mana Pools Safari, we had experiences that were truly out of this world! The stunning nature, the wild life, the camps and their staff, the local guides and the fellow guests created memories for a lifetime!

Photographically Michael Laubscher guided me with his amazing knowledge and incredible patience, he encouraged and challenged me to look at the scenes differently, which helped to find my creativity with my photographs. I also learned so much about developing my RAW images in Lightroom, no question were ever too much. Mike is a gifted teacher, that helps you discover your own style, instead of ‘pushing’ his personal taste on you.

While there is still a lot to learn, I feel more at ease with my new found love for photography! I am a very thankful and grateful WE guest and cannot wait for my future (already scheduled) trips :) !‬

‪Each time I travel with Wild Eye, it gets better and better. I always think the trip I'm on can't ever be topped - then I travel with them again and it's even more magical than the last trip.

This most recent trip found a friend and me in Kenya for two and a half weeks spending two nights in Nairobi, two nights at Lake Nakuru, three nights in Amboseli, a week at the Mara camp, and three nights in Nairobi National Park. This trip was planned in 2019 for travel in 2020. Obviously, the trip didn't happen and it was a VERY long two year wait. It was worth it, though!

While the entire trip was memorable, the week at the Mara camp was most special. Seeing the camp team and my guide Sammy again after three long years was absolutely amazing. Everyone at camp is so kind, thoughtful, and generous. They truly do anticipate every need and want of all guests and treat everyone like family. Every year, it gets harder and harder to leave. The attention to detail at camp is second to none. Our photographic guides Trevor McCall-Peat and Johan van Zyl were excellent! Patient, kind, hilarious...countless laughs and memories with these guys! I can't recommend Wild Eye and the Mara camp enough.

Every year I say it and it sounds so corny, but I literally can travel to Africa - in this case the Masai Mara - with anyone. But I choose to come back to Wild Eye year after year because of the people. The teams in South Africa, Kenya, and the photographic guides are truly special. Their kindness, patience, honesty, and senses of humor make the difference. I'm so grateful to be able to call so many of them my friends and family.

I can't wait to come back to camp in 2024 - for two weeks! Thank you, Wild Eye, for another unforgettable experience!‬

‪Sipping a cup of coffee on a sunny South African morning to write a Wild Eye review, I am recounting the last weeks spent on private guided tour of three African countries with Johan Van Zyl. I describe him as guide and teacher. He is both. And friend.

I find myself conflicted. For what is it that I am reviewing?

Am I reviewing his knowledge of Africa, draping it over what I want to see? To pick the best destinations for me? Am I reviewing his strong relationships at the chosen camps to secure the premiere guides for my stay? Or rather is it his knowledge of photography as he guides me through proper settings on my camera to get the best image possible? Is that what I am reviewing? “Don’t chop the animal in half Kim.” How is your exposure?” “What is your ISO setting?

I tell him my settings, “Bring it down a bit.” He says. “Let’s take a look.” We do. “Perfect.” “Are you happy with your images Kim?”

Am I reviewing the exquisite food we ate too much of? Or the taste of a gin and tonic in the African Bush during a setting sun?” Or I am I reviewing that fact perhaps we didn’t get one because it was replaced by seeing an African Wild Dog kill an impala? Am I review the moment that took my breath away or the moment it came back? Am I reviewing our luck or our patience the late morning we witnessed a leopard jump from a tree, killing an impala below, something generally reserved for Nat Geo after years or months of waiting. An event Johan had not seen in 16 years of guiding, something I will never see again. All captured on video or camera. Amazing. Am I reviewing that I have these images at all, or that my photographic skills light-years ahead of where they were?

Am I reviewing those moments or the moments in between? The ones we decide to put our cameras down. To smell the sweetness of the air filled with the scent of sage. To sit. Listen. There is sound the African Bush makes. I cannot tell you what it is, only that it is singular. To feel. To feel something that no camera will ever capture, emotion weaving its way through mind and heart. To appreciate the courage to come alone, the solitude that accompanies it, the changes in me that follow. Am I reviewing the message I sent to my daughter in a country far away to which she responds she is so happy for me, that she is tearful? Or am I reviewing when I read her response it was met with tears of my own.

Am I reviewing Johan’s sense of humor and the amount of times I almost spit my wine out I was laughing so hard. Or am I reviewing an attentive ear at dinner when I have the courage to tell a story for the first time because I know I will be heard.

Reading the Wild Eye website, their mission… “to continue to build the most dynamic photographic travel and experience company with the intention of continuing to change the way our guests see the world.” And in as much as it is true, it is also true that I see myself differently too. In the end, isn’t that the intent? Is that what I am reviewing? The changes in me? Because if we are paying any attention at all, the journey outward, is met with the another within.

And in a as much my trip once again changes the way I see the world, I see the world changing. This is not my first trip with Wild Eye nor will it be the last. The first time I came to Africa I took pictures of rhinos with full horns. I won’t be able to take those pictures again. Now, to protect them from poaching, they are dehorned. Is that what I am reviewing? That I have seen both things, equally powerful? One I could not appreciate until I saw the other? Still unclear about what I am reviewing, you can decide on your own. It will likely be a long time before I know.

Thank you to everyone at Wild Eye that made this experience possible.

‪The May safari to Madikwe Reserve in South Africa was amazing. The office staff was so helpful with pre-trip planning and always willing to answer my quetions. Our guides, Michael Appalsamy and Trevor McCall-Peat, were so knowledgeable, fun, and very helpful with photography and post-processing suggestions. Our Nakurru lodge hosts, Monique and Grant, were delightful, and Grant went the extra mile (miles!) to find wild dogs for us to photograph. The lodge was beautiful and the food was delicious. This is the second African safari I've taken with Wild Eye, and they will always be, far and away, my first choice for African adventures. Madikwe is a very special place and I will be back!‬

‪As a seasoned Africa traveller with a passion for wildlife my first Wild Eye adventure exceeded all expectations. It was the most amazing trip to Botswana spending quality time with like-minded people who share a passion for the African bush. The small group number worked so well. I cannot thank Andew our host for the week, enough for his patience and excellent photography guidance, tuition and hints and tips which was just first class. With his help with camera settings, composition and Lightroom techniques my photographic skills moved on leaps and bounds during the trip. In addition to the big cats, it was also interesting to focus on everyday sightings such as a group of zebras and look at different perspectives and compositions.

Chitabe in the Okavango Delta is a lovely camp with excellent food, accommodation and facilities however what made it so special was the staff so welcoming it felt like we were invited to join a large happy family. Loved the boma dinners, surprise bush breakfasts and sundowners. Just magic! And what a great guide Kesh was finding the almost impossible amongst all those hectares. We learned a lot about tracking.

The sightings we had during the week were just spectacular!! The ones I will remember the most - the Tsame group of lions 8 females and 4 playful cubs: the wonderful leopard up the tree who posed for us for over an hour, the leopard who just missed killing of an impala in front of us, the wild dogs, and the charging hippo!

I have already booked by second trip with Wild Eye!‬

‪I have just returned from the Desert Wildlife of Namibia trip.

Andrew is the ultimate host, planner and guide! The thoughtful planning of the camps we visited, some with full intensive 15 hour days out, to others that were less tiring. This gave us some time to breathe and absorb our surroundings, and the opportunity to review and edit images.

I was able to learn and master new skills for landscape, abstract, aerial and astro photography which has been a dream for a while! Andrew has the patience of a saint.

I have returned with some incredible images, way beyond my expectations,as well as knowledge and respect for the people and animals that live and survive in this desert environment. Thank you Andrew for indulging my geological , anthropological and historical interests and for the special people you arranged for me to meet, the guardians of the rhino’s and brown hyena researcher.

If you are expecting leopards draped in trees and huge herds of game and elephants, big prides of lions, this is not a trip for you! However, if you want raw landscapes dating back to the creation of Earth, a hostile yet stunningly beautiful environment with specialized and adapted life forms ……go!!!!‬

‪The Best of the Serengeti was my second Wild Eye trip, but it was my first photographic journey. After my first trip to the Masa Mara (equipped only with an iPhone) I was so inspired that I purchased camera gear.

Needless to say, I was nervous leading up to the trip, was I too much of a camera newbie for this? Rest assured, Michael Laubscher and Johan van Zyl made this experience so easy and enjoyable! They guided me with knowledge and incredible patience, no question was ever too much nor too stupid. I never felt inadequate in my new photographic journey! Not every great photographer is also a great teacher…but they are! But more so, they are very humble with their craft and found true pleasure in my little accomplishments in my photographs. They helped me with getting the correct settings and learn to understand them, framing the images and finding the right angles for the scene. They shared their passion and helped me fall in love with the joy and excitement of photography!

They understand animal behaviour and where able to (as much as humanly possible) predict how the scene was going to develop. On top of being true professionals, they made this trip so fun…we laughed so much, my belly hurt :). This trip created memories for a life time!

Looking back, I truly can’t believe, that I !!!! took those photos!!!
Needless to say, I can’t wait to join Michael and Johan and Wild Eye on future trips!
My journey has just started! Thank you!!!‬

‪I recently returned from a wonderful trip to the Greater Kruger in South Africa, put together for me by Wild Eye. What impresses me most about Wild Eye's custom travel is that they do the hard work of matching the individual with the experience. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all trip and the effort is greatly appreciated. Not only do they work with your budget, but their immense wealth of knowledge allows them to match you with the lodges and activities that are perfect for you. I know that this is more labor intensive, but the result is trip after trip that exceeds expectations. I'm truly grateful for the care they put into everything they do and look forward to my next Wild Eye adventure.‬
