We offer photographic safaris, private guided expeditions and custom tours around the world.

About Us

Wild Eye was established in 2012 by Jono Buffey, Gerry van der Walt and Andrew Beck who set out to refresh the photographic travel and private guiding industries by focusing on providing a professional service that is fun and relaxed while providing guests with amazing travel experiences and world class service.

From humble beginnings we have grown not only our service levels and destination offerings; we have also created a platform for qualified and experienced guides to continue growing their brand in the photographic, safari and travel industries.

The Wild Eye team has grown dramatically and is now made up of 9 full-time expedition and tour leaders, full logistics and safari operations teams in both our Johannesburg and Nairobi offices as well as our very own authentic piece of Africa - the Wild Eye Mara Camp.

Our aim is to continue to build the best and most dynamic photographic travel company in the world while continuing to change the way our clients see the world!
