Our Partners

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!”


For 25 years, Africa Foundation, together with committed communities and generous donors, has facilitated the socio-economic development of rural communities in Africa, and in so doing, improved the lives and livelihoods of those most in need. Africa Foundation was born out of the belief that, through effective consultation and collaboration, with legitimate local leadership in place, rural communities are empowered to enable development on a far more successful and sustainable scale.
