The spirit of Hoopoe Safaris
Hoopoe Safaris offers a variety of Kilimanjaro summit routes, all accompanied by the highest quality professional guides and accompanied by an experienced camp crew. The Hoopoe Safaris team has been working together for more than 15 years and ensures a smooth operation on each climb. Expert guides lead each climb, providing a vast wealth of knowledge about Kilimanjaro as well as Tanzanian culture in general.
Overnight camps consist of spacious sleeping tents with comfortable foam mattresses. Meals are served in a large mess tent, where climbers can gather after dinner to share their experiences or play a leisurely game of cards. Private portable toilets are provided throughout the climb. All gear is carried by a team of porters and the camp cooks provide nutritious fare designed to provide energy for the full days.
What we love about Hoopoe Safaris
- Learn the Swahili phrase “Pole Pole’ – this means “slowly, slowly” and is the best advice to help you acclimatise to the altitude.
- Make sure you drink up to three times more water than you usually would – staying well hydrated is absolutely vital.
- Keep the day bag that you carry as light as possible – your porters will take care of all the rest of your gear.
