“Combining efforts in charitable activities brings people from all walks of life together to share their voice and work jointly for a greater impact in driving change”
As travel increasingly becomes more about the things money cannot buy – shared experiences and treasured memories – so many guests want to make a personal connection and positive contribution to the places they visit. We at Eye See Africa have identified a few organizations in conservation, health, education and culture, facing challenges in their respective communities. We would like to introduce civic-minded travelers to a few of the grassroots organizations in Africa. We will donate a percentage of your trip-spend with us to the charity of your choice and in this way make a difference in the places you visit.

DESERT LION CONSERVATION
Desert-adapted lions in Namibia occur mostly outside protected areas in the Kunene Region. Lions often prey on domestic livestock and farmers respond by shooting or poisoning them, in order to protect their livelihood. There is a need for sustainable use of lions for eco-tourism purposes, which provides tangible benefits to the communities, and for proactive management of human/lion conflicts.
"Just came back from a huge trip to Namibia. It was amazing and Tertius Jordaan did a great job at putting together everything for us. Truly a professional and made my trip of a lifetime a reality."
