About Let’s See America and Eben
The Owner and Author
Everything you read on these pages were researched, photographed and written by Eben Schoeman – that’s me! All recommendations are my own, although I keep an eye on online reviews from Yelp, TripAdvisor and several online forums.
If anything is wrong or outdated, Eben is solely to blame!
I normally spend winter traveling in Central and South Florida. In Spring, Summer and Fall I may roam further north or west! Perhaps the coast of New England, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Mid West or the Rocky Mountains. Who knows?
So when things change this website could be temporarily out of date. No-one hates an out of date website more than me so rest assured, I will write updates as soon as I receive them.
If you see something wrong or missing, please tell me!
Your contribution is highly appreciated so thank you in advance!
Eben’s entrepreneurship wasn’t shaped on the back of a napkin in a coffee shop surrounded by future internet billionaires. Instead, his ideas took shape in the mud at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa!
In 2003 he had a vision to help adventurers of all ages achieve their life goals and reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro – at 19,340 feet the highest freestanding mountain in the world.
With handpicked mountain guides, carefully selected routes and special equipment (such as comfortable walk-in tents and extra safety equipment), both the companies he founded (first Kiliwarrior Expeditions and later Taraji Kilimanjaro) became renowned as top outfitters on Kilimanjaro and the obvious choice for active seniors.
With many clients in their 70s and 80s, every trek was personally supervised by Eben to ensure their safety, comfort and summit success! For over 12 years Eben also led upscale photographic safaris to a dozen countries in Africa!
When Eben finally retired in 2016 from the rigors of Africa travel and the dangers of mountain trekking, he was grateful to reflect that his treks and safaris never experienced a client fatality!
That’s several thousand clients to Africa and everyone returned home safe! He attributed this to meticulous planning and trip preparation.
Once back home, Eben could shift his focus exclusively on his next project – writing, photography and helping travelers in North America!
Let’s See America is a how-to Travel Media Company.
Eben travels in a classic Jeep Cherokee 4WD and a comfortable tent!
It’s all about the gypsy life and freedom of travel!
