About Hippo Tours

Specialist, bespoke safari outfitter of Tanzania.

As one of the longest-established, dedicated safari operators in Dar es Salaam, Hippo Tours has been sending clients on safaris of distinction into Selous for as long as anyone can remember. Originally started as a logistics and support operation for Selous' oldest safari camp, Hippo now operates across the breadth of Tanzania,

Unlike many overseas wholesalers, we are a Tanzanian company with Tanzanian staff, the country that we are proud to call home, to which we contribute with license fees, taxes and respect. We spend most of our spare time on safari rather than learning about our products on an annual familiarization trip and have a working knowledge of every aspect of our operation. The three members of the office staff can count on an accumulated 50 years of experience in the industry, at all levels from camp management and Kilimanjaro guiding to guest relations representative and running the State Travel Service.

We believe in the continuing evolution of the safari experience, blending Africa with the adventure that is its natural expression, and offering the discerning client the opportunity to move closer to the Africa that they have come to experience. The safari should be a perfect blend of activity, game-viewing and integrity to create a unique experience for a unique destination.

Whether you decide upon a budget, luxury safari, camping safaris, adventure or a relaxing beach holiday, you will have an unforgettable experience. Highly trained professionals with many years of experience of offering the best memorable safari in TANZANIA, we offer you transport using our own vehicles. Reliable and professional drivers/guides bring you to any destination in Tanzania. Also, we can use flight as option mode of transport. We offer and arrange for best hotels, camps and lodge service to suite everyone’s budget with guarantee comfort and security.
