Jordan and Egypt were Amazing!! I was able to have an experience of a lifetime this past month with my son, Adam, traveling with Eagle Eye Safari tours through Jordan and Egypt. Jordan was amazing with the beautiful desert landscape of Wadi Rum and the ancient beautiful city of Petra and the experience of floating on the Dead sea. Driving through the country, we loved all the camels we met along the way!! Sampling the camel milk was awesome and of course we loved our Camel ride! Our accommodations were excellent and the food was delicious! We appreciated our Eagle Eye tour guide Karen (Thanks Karen with your help taking pictures)! We really enjoyed our local tour guide Ramses, a life long resident of Petra who was very knowledgeable and also very kind keeping me, a senior, on my feet on walks through bumpy terrain. Ramses introduced us to some some of friends along the way who shared their delicious food including fresh off the vine watermelon and cantelope. He also did some skillful driving in the desert sand dunes that was very fun as we drove to a spectacular Wadi Rum desert outlook. If you love an adventure, I would highly recommend this tour!! Next we went to Egypt, again with Eagle Eye Tours and of course the sights were mind blowing as we expected!!! Our local tour guide, and Egyptologist, Emann brought everything to life with her passionate knowledge of Temples, Kings, pharaohs, pyramids, tombs and her expansive Egyptian history knowledge. Emann and Marwa saw to our every need and desire. We appreciated the thoughtful planning of our Eagle Eye tour by owners Karen and Ernest who accompanied us. The accommodations, the food, the Nile cruise and the amazing Hot Air Balloon ride snd so much more were first class. I’m sure King Tut would approve! Thank you Eagle Eye Safari for an incredible experience!!!

Eagle Eye Safaris plans an absolutely incredible travel experience. I had the amazing opportunity to join them on back to back trips to Jordan AND Egypt (highly recommend combining the two)!!! Jordan was an amazing experience seeing Petra, Wadi Rum, The Dead Sea, and Wadi Mujib. We were accompanied by Eagle Eye Safaris owner Karen, and their local Jordan guide, Ramzi. They provide an incredible experience meeting locals, seeing the beautiful landscape and sights, and camels for days! Have you ever drank camel milk!? Neither had I, but they made it happen! They even arranged special lunches and experiences with natives who made us amazing meals! We ended our Jordan trip by jumping on a plane to Cairo to start our next adventure in Egypt! Egypt was an incredible experience organized by Eagle Eye Safaris. We were joined by Eagle Eye owner’s Karen and Ernest, who make everything run smoothly and were able to provide camera tips and tricks for beginners and advanced photographers. They’ll even arrange special time to teach you photography courses in your down time. The local Egypt guides Eman and Marwa were absolutely incredible. Eman is a hilarious firecracker of a person! She is a wealth of knowledge and can tell you everything you could ever want to know about Egypt. She was an absolute delight to have guide us around this incredible country and to share her knowledge about the history! This was my second trip with Eagle Eye Safari’s (technically second and third with the Jordan and Egypt combined trips). My first was the Luxury Big 5 Safari in 2019, another incredible experience which inspired me to continue using Eagle Eye Safari’s for my future world travel. I look forward to more trips with them in the future! 10/10 recommend!!!

I did Eagle Eye Safaris Egypt Tour. It was great. Karen, Ernest, Imon and Marwa did a great job. Imon has so much knowledge of Kings, Pharaohs and history of Egypt that she wants to share, it is so wonderful. You will never go away asking what happened to King Tut, or any of the Kings. I just don't know she keeps it all straight. Ernest took 2 evenings to give a class on photography, for anyone that wanted to attend. Several people attended and loved the class. He not only taught the camera, but showed others how to use the Samsung Galaxy camera, and Apple. Everyone appreciated the classes. We followed up our Egypt tour, with a tour of Jordan, which Eagle eye arranged. It was wonderful. The tour guide they provide was Ramsey and he was just wonderful. He allowed us to adjust if needed and showed us many wonderful parts of Jordan. I would highly recommend Eagle Eye Safari when considering touring Egypt or Jordan. They make sure you have great experience and that the tour guides in these countries are very knowledgeable, not just reading text that they memorized.

I did not know what to expect on safari, and this experience was terrific. We stayed at Nkorho Lodge in Sabi Sands, a game reserve on the edge of Kruger national park. The tracker and ranger on our game drives had extensive knowledge of the animals and birds that we saw, and in our open jeeps we had close up views of leopards, lions, giraffes, rhinos, hyenas and smaller animals like the dwarf mongoose. The animals are used to the vehicles, and allow for great photography. Our safari was arranged by Karen Blackwood and Ernest Porter, who are expert photographers anxious to share their expertise. The lodge was luxurious, the food wonderful and the staff gracious and helpful. We traveled to Nelspruit from Capetown, staying in Loeri's Call in Nelspruit overnight (also wonderful), and were transported to Sabi Sands by Seasons in Africa, all arranged by Karen/Ernest. The experience could not have been better!
