Hoopoe is a boutique safari company providing specialized and tailor made experiences, supporting respectful & authentic community interactions along the way and interpretative guiding in the parks and protective wildlife areas.

Our mobile classic style tented camps follow the annual migration while our permanent tented lodges are strategically placed to enjoy both wildlife and cultural experiences. However, we are not wedded to our own camps and lodges, and use a wide range of trusted partners that we can trust for good service and high standards.. We use custom built safari prepared 4x4's, which are replaced on a regular basis. Hoopoe has it's own workshop & in-house workshop team to regularly service and maintain our vehicles. We have a mix of open game drive cars for our game packages based at our mobile camps. 


Hoopoe Safari and gave us 10 amazing days we will never forget! The itinerary and lodging was customized to our personal preferences. We would not have changed anything! The accommodations were exceptional....the food healthy and delicious but what was most enjoyable was the staff at each lodge. So very friendly and caring. Our personal guide, Lisekar was a wealth of knowledge,a wonderful human being and a great companion for the entire trip. We were really well cared for and saw things only an experienced guide could find. The extraordinary sites of Kilimanjaro, Ngorogoro, the Seregetti and the great migration of wildebeest crossing the Mara River are all captured in our minds and on camera. We could not think of a more wonderful vacation and highly recommend Hoopoe Safari!

"The food at the camps was well prepared and delicious with variety, choice and fresh vegetables. The camps were a treat. Each meal served in a different location -- no family-style dining. And, what is more wonderful than having a hot water bottle in your bed at night! I highly recommend Hoopoe for your safari"
