Really wonderful experience that beyond expectation!!!

Was really treated like a friend which is beyond expectation and as a solo traveller, I feel at home at Hekima House with the team - Elieza and Jackson - and other travellers. Our driver as well as guide is also super experienced - can spot the leopard far far far away in the bush - and always focus on details and every person's need. Our chef and assistant are also very sweet and make delicious food for us. It's overall a fantastic experience and highly recommended! GoHekima!

A unique and beautiful experience

We stayed in the Hekima House and booked the Safari directly when we arrived. The stuff was very kind and helped us in every belongings. The safari itself was a unique experience, we saw a lot of animals and visited the Hadzabe. I would defenently book a tour with Hekima again!

Wonderful Safari , Trustworthy Operator, Friendly Staff

With Hekima, we did a 4 day safari (Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro) and 2 day trips to Kikuletwa Hotsprings and Kilimanjaro.

Safari experience was really good. Our driver/guide Moses was really experienced and friendly. He knows where to drive and when to start the game drives. In Serengeti, we started the game drive at 6:00 and saw a kind of conflict between a lion and hyaena clan just at the beginning. Many safari cars came half an hour later and missed the whole show.

The food in safari was above my expectations. If protein is important in your diet, you must bring it for yourself. Meat amount was little as expected.

The sleeping bags and tents are taken from a place in Mto wa Mbu. I guess most operators do the same since I saw similar tents in campsites. Tents were a bit smelly at first night. Sleeping bags have different models and conditions. Some of them are not suitable for the night at Ngorongoro especially for the girls (5-10 'C). But wearing layers during the sleep can suffice.

The only problem in our experience with Hekima was in Kilimanjaro Day hike. We started the day nearly 2 hours later than suggested time and we needed to rush a lot for completing the hike before 6pm (after 6 hiking is prohibited). Because of this we could not see Maundi Crater and did not enjoy the hike since we did not give breaks and need to complete the whole hike in 4 hours (nearly double speed). They must be more careful on this kind of arrangements and must consider the traffic and park rules.

Many thanks for your kind review! We are really happy that you enjoyed the time spent with us during the safari! It's very important to us!

Thank you for your feedback about a day Hike at Mt Kilimanjaro !

“We conducted the promotion in our social Media about to get free Activities with us and they won free day Hike at Mt Kilimanjaro .And after Kikuletwa they overnight at Arusha due to the time and periodicity “A day Hike”from Arusha to Kilimanjaro for starting point of Marangu root we did the best to meet they expectation “
for this reason we apologize if we didn’t meet your expectations. Environment conditions of day Hike could make it not that easy, but we will take this observation to still improve our service!
Hope to meet you again soon around this small village called “World “

Unique Safari Experience

We did a 4 day safari tour with Hekima, which was an amazing experience! We visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Lake Eyasi and discovered Arusha National Park at a walking safari.
We booked everything the day when we arrived in Hekima House, where the stuff is so friendly and welcoming that you don´´ t feel like being in a Hostel but at a friends place. Arranging the safari was really easygoing and they followed our wishes perfectly and gave good recommendation what suits best so that we had a really diversified tour with a lot of animals, haunting with the hadzabe and last but not least the walking tour, which is a great experience after sitting in the car for 3 days.

In the evening we always had a great dinner and our guide put much effort in us feeling comfortable. For example organizing a bonfire, show us the sundowner at the lake or just entertaining us;)

Great experience

We had a great experience with Hekima despite some initial difficulties that were sorted out perfectly. The company helped us to modify a tour to make it more suitable for us and they were always in direct contact with us in case we needed anything. I would recommend it.

Excellent Game Drive

I had an amazing experience with Hekima Safaris. Very friendly and hospitable staff. We went to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. In the end was a relaxing boating on the lake Duluti. It was so wonderful to see everything that had seen in National Geographic and other channels in real. Like just in front of your eyes, sometimes very close. We saw baby cheetahs, hunting lions, rhinos, a funny honey badger and a lot more. We did not see a leopard, but it's a game drive, not a zoo, right? Next time! Good meal, nights in the tents under an awesome starry sky included.
Thanks to great driver Samir, chef Marcus, Elieza, Jackson and others!
Highly recommended!

Fantastic safari experience

I had a fantastic 4-days safari with Hekima. Our tour guide and driver Sam is experienced and friendly. He took us to spot dozens of animals and also made our journey full of fun by storytelling his unforgettable experiences of safari. The chef never failed to fulfill our appetite. We went to tarangiere and seregenti national park, as well as ngorongoro, the views were diverse and breathtaking. The Hekima staff at Hekima house treated us as family when we were back from safari. Eliza is young passionate entrepreneur, I was really inspired by his story of setting up Hekima safari.
