As one of the longest-established,
dedicated safari operators in Dar es Salaam, Hippo 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
Unlike many overseas wholesalers, we are
a Tanzanian company with Tanzanian staff, a part of
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.
