From modest beginnings to safari excellence, Hoopoe Safari is celebrating 35 years of African safaris in 2024.

Hoopoe owns and manages properties under Kirurumu Under Canvas, an outfit that offers a complete circuit of under canvas properties for safaris in Northern Tanzania. Kirurumu is used by a wide range of safari operators and guests from all over the globe. Our tented lodges and extremely comfortable mobile camps merge with the landscape and are designed to have minimum impact on the environment.

They have become havens of peace for both, its visitors and its creatures great and small that now have a safe refuge. Birdlife in the lodge’s grounds has increased dramatically over time and they are a bird watcher’s paradise. Diminutive dik-dik and shy and elusive bushbuck also are now common on the grounds.

Hoopoe Safaris owner, Peter Lindstrom, said “A lot of water has flowed under the bridge over the last 35 years. Hoopoe Safaris has come a long way from very modest beginnings and has endured the many difficulties that have happened over the intervening years. The company has remained true to its ethos and gained a reputation as a trusted safari provider, making a safari a transformative experience. As owners and managers of camps and lodges, we are also proud of our eco-friendly properties. It celebrates with its loyal, long-serving team and invites past travellers and others to enjoy special discounts as we celebrate our 35th!”

Hoopoe Safari Updates

Kirurumu Under Canvas are pleased to confirm their annual camp migration, from the northern Serengeti to Ndutu in southern Serengeti.

The South Serengeti camp is situated near a picturesque lake, with excellent access to vast herds of wildebeest and zebra (and attendant predators) that make up the famous Migration. The camp is small and very personal, and its friendly camp crew await you.
