Northern Tanzania is the home of the classic safari experience, a spectacularly diverse cluster of eco-systems and habitats, linked by the movements of as definitive a cross- section of wildlife as is found on the African Continent. From the endless short-grass plains of the Serengeti to the dense riverine forests of Lake Manyara, the classic African savannah of Tarangire to the lushly blended eco-systems of Ngorongoro, there runs a shifting migration of African wildlife that perfectly captures the safari experience
Hippo are based in Dar es Salaam, to the South of the country and in conjunction with our affiliated company in the north, we operate a limited series of safaris across the world-famous Northern Circuit of Serengeti, Ngorongoro and beyond. We operate the different, the exclusive, the adventurous and the special, based on our experience guiding across these areas for ten years.
Serengeti and Ngorongoro are justifiably world-famous, but there are still different ways to encounter them, leaving the crowds behind in search of genuine African Adventure. Away from the main trails, there are active volcanoes, cave paintings, genuine tribal encounters, unhurried wildlife and landscapes that would not seem out of place amongst the primeval fires of Creation.
