Brilliant personal service
5/5

I had an amazing safari with Hekima, from the minute I contacted them to ask for quotes until after the safari was over, they were brilliant.
During the planning they answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly, and despite the limitations of tourism in December 2021 they made sure the safari went ahead as planned, even adjusting it to align with my flight times!

The lodges and camps were great, and the guide made huge efforts to get us sightings of all the “Big 5”.

If you are looking for a company that gives 100% to truly personal service, look no further

Great tour and organization!
5/5

We booked the tour directly with Hekima. Everything was safe and secure. At some point we had to reschedule due to emergency and there were no problems with that (no penalties). Although, the tour was booked as a group, there were no other people joining, so we had a de-facto individual experience. We are very happy that the tour was not cancelled due to the lack of people. The tour experience itself was very unique authentic - like coffee tour with local people. They really wanted to share the culture with us, not to sell something. The key part of the tour was real hunting with Hadza people - that was something one of a kind! They were able to catch a wild cat, cooked and ate it immediately. This something that you will not see on any other tours. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The accommodations were very good (we had a room with jacuzzi on one night). I am highly recommending this tour and company, especially if you want to see Africa beyond safari!

Fabulous
5/5

My partner and I went on a safari with Hekima Safaris (with Fred as a guide) in September 2021.
This experience was really great.
We thank Hekima and Fred for listening to us and allowing us to have a safari that lived up to our expectations.
We did Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro in 4 days, the tour I had hoped for.
Fred has been so kind to us. He helped us in all our procedures on the spot, and thanks to his patience and his reactivity we were able to see rhinos and leopards which are rather rare.
We 100% recommend and will call them again without a doubt.

The best tour operator
5/5

Jackson and his staff are amazing. Very professional in organizing everything from the begin. They really knows how to take care of the customers which, in my opinion, is a primary target for the tour operators that works in East Africa. We had the chance to go up in the Kilimanjaro for our first five days and then we continued for a 5 nights Safari all over the parks in nothern circuit.
I would 100% recommend Hekima Safaris East Africa for your amazing experience #GoHekima

We had a great safari thanks to Hekima Safari
5/5

To all those who still hesitate to book their Safari with Hekima Safari, do not doubt any longer !!

We spent three dreamy days with and thanks to them everything was just perfect

Nothing is too much trouble for them, and will help you with whatever you want, even before and after the Safari.
Our guides Fred and Ely came to our hotel the day before our Safari to meet us and brief us on our safari route.

During the safari they made sure we saw all the animals possible and took us to the best spots.
They accommodated us in fabulous lodges (cleanliness, hospitality, service, food) it was just perfect!

We keep an incredible memory of this experience and we are surely coming back for another safari, with The best agency Hekima Safari #GoHekima

Best 3 days of my life (Literally)
5/5

I had a crazy experience with Hekima Safari. I will never forget his 3 days Safari. It was my childhood dream and Hekima Safari helped me make it come true in the best possible way.

First, I would like to start with our guide Fredy. I have never met a person as selfless as him. He made us discover the savannah and was very careful from the start to the end of our Safari. He is a wonderful, smiling and happy person. This is the best meeting we had on this trip (Fredy if you read this cheetah girls loves you ♥ ️ ♥ ️)

Then I would like to thank Ely for everything he has done for us. Whenever we needed something, he was there. Whenever we had a problem, he had a solution. It really is the best.

We were accommodated in luxury lodges in the middle of the savannah. I will never forget those 2 nights, it was unreal! The staff were super nice and I'm shocked at the cleanliness, I didn't think it was going to be that clean but it was really great

I recommend the Hekima Safaris agency
5/5

I confirm the positive testimonials of the Hekima Safaris Ltd office that organized a two-week trip to Uganda for us. The main attractions were - Bwindi, National Parks - Queen Elizabeth, Lake Mburo, Murchision and Kibale Forest. Apart from the exotic nature, it was an extraordinary experience to visit the local village and several places "off the beaten track". Due to covid, the plan had to be changed during the stay in Uganda (some attractions were closed by the Ugandan government). However, this did not significantly affect the attractiveness of the trip, because the organization was at the highest level and the organizer quickly rebuilt the places and replaced the previously planned attractions with others. Thus, we did not feel any covid inconveniences. The organizer even planned a coronavirus test for us, which is required by the airlines. She made an appointment with the whole group in advance so as not to waste our time. Extra service - I recommend it!

Laughter
5/5



For the trek, our guide, was so important for us the last night, guiding us in the dark and bringing our water bottles to the top. We couldnt have made it without him. All the meals we had on the mountain were really good (they were diversified and there was a lot of food).

About the safari, it was incredible! We chose Middle range safari and were not disappointed at all, considering the camping sites are really in the middle of the wildlife! Our guide, was excellent and he is such a good driver (we always felt secure, no matter the road condition). He knows so many things about the wildlife and East Africa and he was always eager to give us informations. He was also concerned by our needs and was able to show us everything that we wanted to see. I would recommend him to anyone. We also had an excellent cook, Markus, who, each day, managed to make small miracles for us (he made me a cake for my birthday in the middle of the Serengeti!). We had such a good time with them!

About the car, the communication before and after the trek/safari, the price, etc., everything was perfect. I recommend Hekima Safaris East Africa to anyone who wants to make a good trip
