This is THE BEST guided trip, ever! My husband and I cannot say enough about our recent (successful!) Kilamanjaro hike with Hoopoe. Every single detail was taken care of for us. The absolutely amazing guides, porters, camp crew and cook- we ate like kings and queens in the most beautiful surroundings! Our tent was extremely durable, very warm and we enjoyed very comfortable mattress pads and sleeping bags. We were greeted each morning with a smile and steaming hot chocolate at every wake up call! The energy from the entire group along our journey was contagious. You could feel the enthusiasm and happiness of the entire “A-Team” from start to finish. We simply cannot say enough how great of an experience this was. A lifelong memory fulfilled, and people we will never forget. Don’t think twice about booking them for your Kilamanjaro experience! Best decision we made when booking our trip to Tanzania!

Our UK tour company utilized Hoopoe Safaris as their ground operations in the Arusha & Lake Manyara area. We could be not more pleased with our driver Aron who took great care of us for our three days. We toured Tarangire National Park and Aaron tried very hard to show us the best experience. He navigated the PCR testing and the flight from Lake Manyara easily. Our family enjoyed meeting Aron and were very happy with Hoopoe safaris.

Great service from Hoopoe! We had the chance to have Clémence as Guide/driver and he was super! Driving was safe, knowledge was beyond expectation, always looking for animals that we might have missed !! Also Dionis from central office was clearly ahead of the ball (responsive, helpful) and made our trip wonderful! I mostly recommend them to anyone!

I can't say enough about how wonderful and well organized our safari trip with Hoopoe was. We chose the "Serengeti Will Never Die" trip as it offered us 10 full days on safari. Our driver, Albert Fundi, was a wealth of information about a great variety of topics, from animal behavior to geography, history and tribal customs. He's also an incredibly personable and funny guy, and we bonded with him deeply over our time together. Hoopoe's attention to every detail of the trip made it proceed smoothly in every way. Every lodge was wonderful and the staff at each were very attentive. I am already planning my next trip with them, and would highly recommend them to anyone contemplating a safari - or other trip - to Tanzania. Thanks again, Hoopoe!

Our trip was great, well organized, and I can't say enough good things about our guide Lesikar. We thought it was special to have someone so intimately familiar with the Maasai way of life and culture guide us. Lesikar was very knowledgeable, kind/easy to get along with, flexible, and very hard working. Hoopoe safaris was likewise wonderful. Communication was very good. I had a question about the wire transfer at the bank and Dionis picked up his phone in Tanzania (I am from the US) at 11:30pm to speak directly with the bank teller. At one point we decided to modify our itinerary a bit. Our guide was able to quickly communicate to Hoopoe safaris to make immediate reservations and changes. The price was perfectly competitive (if not a bit better since I now understand the itinerary they made was better then the others that were presented to me before going). All around a perfectly positive experience. Thank you for everything! Art
