Tanzania is the giant of safari destinations with huge tracts of wildlife areas, many reserves, national parks and Mount Kilimanjaro.
It is celebrated for its prolific game viewing all year round as well as the famous Ngorongoro crater.
Highlights include thousands of wildebeest and plains game, lion, leopard, cheetah, the vast open plains of Serengeti dotted with flat topped acacias and kopjes, the Maasai in their red robes tending cattle, wild chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains as well as exotic Zanzibar. There is so much in Tanzania, it really requires more than one safari to take in the whole country.

Aaron started right at the bottom as a mechanic, worked his way up to a supply driver for Hoopoe camps and lodges and once he had learnt his way around the parks was accepted as a trainee guides and soon demonstrated his ability to learn fast. His great communication skills and patience and his deep interest in wildlife quickly earned his place as one of Hoopoe’s top guides.
Paul is a passionate & experienced naturalist, photographer & conservationist with over 30 years of experience in guiding. There is nothing Paul enjoys more than being with guests in the middle of absolutely nowhere surrounded by all the sights, noises, smells and nuances of the African bush. He prefers to use his own luxury mobile camp on safari whereby he can access the further reaches of the wildlife areas of Tanzania. The wilder, the better.
Peter Lindstrom occasionally leads our guests on safari in Tanzania. Peter has a wry sense of humour and gentle disposition and a safari in his company is a rare and fascinating insight, opening up the finer treasures of his home country. Peter was born in Kenya of Danish parents and brought up on a coffee farm in the highlands. He worked in remote areas in East Africa and Sudan in the hospitality industry before settling in Tanzania and starting Hoopoe Safaris of Arusha back in 1988.
There was a time when there were distinct safari seasons across Africa. But things have changed over the years and visiting outside the traditional seasons is now not only possible, but often desirable.
