Now in our golden years ( 69+79) we decided to learn scuba diving - Zanzibar the romantic island with it's blue green warm waters seemed the right destination . Our last Africa trip to Namibia had been a great success thanks to EyeseeAfrica's meticulous planning , therefore one phone call to Tertius and within hours the road map for a new adventure arrived . Is there a corner in Africa Tertius doesn't know ??? he advised and developed another perfect trip for us . What a joy it is to know that all options have been considered, because Tertius reads his clients excellently and won't leave a stone or shell turned over ,making sure the journey runs smoothly . He stood in contact at every step ! the owners of the Dive Center in Nunngwi are his friends who took great care of us , we had an excellent German speaking Dive Master at our side and managed in a few days to get our certificate . As I heard from the owner , Tertius stayed in contact all the time making sure we hadn't been eaten by a big Grouper . We stayed at Zuri Zanzibar a characterful , stylish 5*Hotel with all amenities your heart desires. Every day we were taken by boat to the Dive center , fitted out and then the incredible journey into the coral forests started. Unforgettable !
We are most grateful to Tertius and Eyesee Africa once more for having put together an exciting trip with lots of care, consideration and patience for our endless questions .
WE won't dare to step into Africa without Tertius as we might miss out on something special only HE knows !

Dear Gabrielle and Reinhard

Thank you so much for this wonderful review and once again the opportunity to plan this Zanzibar trip for you. I think the best part of our job at eyeseeAfrica is that we are constantly on tour in Africa, travelling through the itineraries of our clients.

I was really very excited to follow your progress from, never having dived before to getting your certificate in that week. This qualification is now opening a whole new world of travelling to so many diving hotspots. There are very few holiday options that can beat a tropical beach/diving destination. I heard that you were natural divers too ;) .Don't wait too long before your next dive as it just gets better as you build more confidence and experience.

It is also always very nice to hear from our suppliers how wonderful the client is! You have definitely made a lot of new friends in Zanzibar.

Thank You!

This is our second trip to Africa which EyeSeeAfrica coordinated for us. They are an EXCEPTIONAL company that provides EXTREMELY wonderful services. We told them that we wanted to go gorilla trekking and to see the great migration. They set up the best itinerary for us during our 18 day vacation. Our accommodations consisted of various tent camps as well as beautiful lodges. Tertius, from the company, kept in contact with us throughout our vacation to make sure everything was going according to plan. He couldn’t have been more helpful. We were supposed to take this trip last year but postponed it due to Covid-19. Tertius had booked our last night per our request at Giraffe Manor. A reservation for this year was difficult to obtain even though we were trying to make it a year in advance. Tertius made it happen for us. The company is a small, boutique agency that goes ABOVE and BEYOND when it comes to personal service. We plan on using EyeSeeAfrica for all of our future trips to Africa which we hope will be many. Do yourselves a favor and contact them if you plan on visiting Africa.

Dear Kait & Mark

In 2017 we planned your honeymoon to South Africa. It was wonderful when you contacted us again for another African adventure. This time for a three country (Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya) Gorilla and safari trip. This means that you are falling more in love with Africa :). The logistics of every trip are planned in detail by us but thereafter we can just hope for those extra magical moments for our clients to experience. Like your special encounter with the 13 Uganda children on your first day....and the magical view over Lake Mutanda. Africa is like no other continent and the experience of our clients over the years has always been positive and never disappoints.

Thank you again for the opportunity to plan this adventure for you and yes, next time to my home country Namibia with Meerkats joining :)

A second fabulous visit to southern Africa! Our first trip with eyeseeAfrica in 2018 was a 107-day itinerary from South Africa to Namibia to Botswana, Mozambique and Madagascar. It was simply amazing, largely due to meticulous planning and knowledgeable advice from Tertius.

Once Coronavirus restrictions eased, we jumped at the chance to return……. For three-plus months in 2022. We revisited favorites from 2018, and ventured into new areas, such as LeSotho, Zambia and South Africa’s Wild Coast. Tertius and his eyeseeAfrica colleagues created incredible personalized adventures for us all along the way - including “wild camping” in Namibia and specialized rock-hunting expeditions. This part of the world has breath-taking beauty, sweet people, fascinating cultures and a stirring history. We are better people for having been here.

We could not imagine returning to Africa without the guidance of eyeseeAfrica and Tertius. He and his team truly care, delivering outstanding service from start to finish. We are grateful for the support of eyeseeAfrica, and happy to have had Tertius as our trusted resource.

Dear Henry & Robbie

It only happens once in a lifetime to be contacted by a client and get a brief to plan a Southern African trip which ended up to be a total of 108 days. The best part in planning this epic trip was the fact that we were given Carte Blanche to decide on how many days, where to go, where to stay and what to experience. Countries included South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Madagascar.

And then it happened again! This time the planning ended up to be 94 days with a visit to new places like South Africa's Wild Coast , Lesotho and Zambia but then also a re visit to special places like Namibia and Botswana. When we then also got the invitation to join you as much as possible and wherever we can on the trip, we thought that our job just couldn't get better.

I absolutely loved showing you a bit more of the wild areas of my home country Namibia and although the going got tough sometimes, we have made memories to stay with us forever. Inviting some fellow Namibian friends to join for a few days just made the trip even more interesting and I am sure that you will agree that you have made some lifelong friends. Furthermore our eyes were opened by you to see local treasures and we have now become experts in Agates and the search for them :).

Robbie and Henry, again thank you so much for the incredible opportunity to plan this trip for you. Although you have already seen so much of Southern Africa, remember that you now have friends staying here and you will always be welcome in our homes just to come for a visit. We are now your second home to Texas :)

eyeseeAfrica facilitated the most incredible bespoke Southern African adventure for us. I have never felt in more capable hands. Our 6 week, 4 country trip exceeded our expectations.

From preliminary planning to execution it was flawless. Tertius’s love and knowledge of Africa is so apparent. Our wishes and budget were constantly acknowledged and adhered to in the planning.

We began designing our adventure with Tertius in 2019 and it was to take place in 2020. Due to Covid and an unexpected family matter we had to reschedule our trip three times. The amount of work that that must of entailed in incomprehensible. Yet Tertius remained a delight to deal with.

As this was our first trip to Southern Africa and with over four weeks of self drive planned we greatly appreciated in-depth level of organization and communication.

I can’t imagine finding a more experienced and committed team. I would 100% recommend them to anyone considering an epic African adventure.

Some of my most appreciated details

* The bespoke itinerary was lay out for our trip on an incredible personalized website. It has a break down of overview, destination, accommodations, daily information, map, transportation, information, documents. It contained every detail and could be accessed any time.

* The exceeding abundance of personal knowledge of the areas travelled

* The daily communication while travelling

* Professional personalized service

* Coming in on budget

Dear Jodi & Dave

What a wonderful review and I am so happy that your first trip to Africa didn't disappoint and that you had such a great experience.

It has been such a long time since you and Dave started planning this trip with us. Twice postponed due to Covid but in some way, the wait worked out well as all the Covid regulations had been lifted by the time you travelled. No more time-wasting PCR tests crossing borders. :)

It was really a pleasure and a great privilege to plan this trip for you and Dave, the best clients one could ask for. It was heart-warming to almost daily get your WhatsApp messages on the group telling us how incredible the scenery, lodges and your experience are.

There are many more countries to see in Africa. Come back soon!

What we loved best about this trip was that Tertius created a fantastic itinerary, and that he and his team were in close contact and assisted throughout the trip which was amazing. Tertius certainly knows how to choose places and experiences which are tailor made for you. We will most definitely ask Tertius to organise our next trip.

We had so many amazing experiences throughout the trip, but our favourite was the walk with a Bushman while staying at Habitas. It was probably our favourite as it was a new experience for us. We so enjoyed that encounter as it gave us a unique insight into their way of life.

Dear Claire

I am very happy that you gave eyeseeAfrica the opportunity to "tweak" your trip a bit and to let you see a bit more of this beautiful part of Namibia.

The roads you travelled on is a bit off the beaten track but I'm sure you enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the bit of adventure.

Thank you also for the feedback. It is invaluable to us in planning our trips.

All the best !

Tertius
