Tour guide and Wildlife Photographer

I believe in the old African proverb “The eye never forgets what the heart has seen”. A phrase that best describes the feeling one gets after visiting Africa and seeing her beauty. Born and raised in Kenya, I grew up accustomed to the marvelous thrills of the African bush life. If there’s one thing that gets me to do and excites me is photography that really stands out from all the rest. I always think of going all over the world and take shots of everything worth-seeing. I want to stick to photography all the time.

Simply Spectacular Safari

Words seem inadequate to describe our safari. It was simply fabulous! This was my second time on safari with Eric. My first safari went so well, I asked him to guide our second one. Eric’s knowledge on the animals, birds, flora and fauna are unmatched. Whatever your interest, he will meet it!

Beat safari guide and travel planner!

Eric is the best guide ever. So knowledgeable about all the birds, animals,and plants. He's an excellent driver, which is not to be taken lightly. From picking up at the airport to dropping us off, if was seamless. The accommodations he arranged where all great. I look forward to another safari with Eric.

Knowledgeable and fantastic photography guide

Eric is a fantastic guide! We traveled with him for 12 days across different national parks. He’s patient, considerate, and very very knowledgeable. And he’s got very good eyes - he could spot animals so so well! He also understands the light well for photography so it’s a huge plus for photographers. Will definitely use him again when I return to Kenya. Highly recommended!

A wonderful guide in Nairobi

Eric was a wonderful guide always on time, very courteous! I was traveling on my own but he was gracious in taking many pictures of me. He was very easy to understand, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about what to do and where to take me. I spent two days with him in Nairobi before my safari to Kenya and Tanzania started. Without naming my tour group- suffice it to say that Eric was head and heels above my other two guides ! In short he was wonderful

Encyclopedia of Kenyan flora and fauna

After 2 wonderful weeks we are at the airport and past all the security checks. Looking forward to get home. We will miss our guide Eric Koech. This man is a walking encyclopedia of Kenyan flora and fauna and became a wonderful friend. We learnt so much from him, it was like taking a college course. Unfortunately, our ability to absorb his Swahili lessons was far below par. I am pretty sure we failed that lesson. We already have plans to return to Kenya next January. One might think we like it here
