EYES ON AFRICA

About Us - Our African Safari Travel Company & Safari Guides

James and NickyEyes on Africa was created with the vision of sharing the wonders of the African continent with those who are eager to explore some of the world's most magnificent areas...areas that combine pristine, natural beauty, incredible wildlife, cultural diversity and remote, unspoiled and untamed wilderness.

If you want to experience the true essence of Africa, then the big lodges filled with masses of tourists are not for you. We, in conjunction with only the very best of our local African partners, are here to offer you large, remote, private and exclusive concessions that cater to a minimal number of guests. With so few guests in such large unspoiled tracts of wilderness, the magical feeling is unlike anything you are likely to ever experience.

Whether you want to plan the perfect honeymoon, the daring African adventure holiday, the ultimate African safari or a unique family vacation, Africa offers it all. Eyes on Africa are here to offer you photographic African safaris, eco tourism and adventure travel. All our trips are tailor-made to our guests' specifications - so no two trips will ever be alike. Whatever your special interest, we have something that will meet your needs. We do all the research, plan your itinerary, provide necessary information and cover all details – all you need to do is pack your bag and prepare for the African vacation of a lifetime.

Eyes on Africa is run by people who know the African continent intimately, who have lived there and who know the people and places. It is run by people who were born and raised in Africa and who continue to return year after year - not only to refresh their knowledge, but predominantly because of the love and passion that they have for its areas.

Eyes on Africa is owned and managed by Nicky Glover and James Weis.

Pamela Langhoff

Pamela Langhoff in AfricaPamela on safariPamela was born and raised in scenic Cape Town, South Africa. Her first experience with an African Safari was at the age of 16, when she traveled to Zimbabwe for a two-week safari adventure. Inspired then, she never imagined that her career path would lead her to more such magical adventures.

Pam has a real passion for travel, having lived on three continents and traveled throughout Europe, the US, and of course, Africa! She enjoys every aspect of African travel, from the diverse cultures, the sightseeing, adventure activities, wildlife and nature.

Pam is a real people’s person and she enjoys any social setting, loves music and one of her favorite pass times is "scrap-booking". However, Pam’s true passion is travel and, like the rest of the Eyes on Africa team, she travels home to Africa at least once per year to visit properties, go on safari and visit African villages.

Joining Eyes on Africa has fulfilled Pam’s dream of having a career that is rewarding, exciting, enjoyable and one that often changes people’s lives. Pam believes that once you experience the magic and adventure that Africa offers, your heart and soul will always yearn to go back!
