Although we ended up having an amazing experience climbing Mt. Meru with this company, the thing I most remember about this trip is being detained by the National Park Rangers (who I believe are in cahoots with the Hartebeest) for five hours due to the porters not receiving their salaries. Payment for our trip had been made in full in... More

He is an excellent, prudent driver, good expert of wildlife and savana routes, moreover a smart and wise guy and discreet companion. We have also been accompanied by an amazing cook,... More

We decided to organize our Safari in Tanzania with Hertebeest following some friends’ suggestion. Before taking the final decision, we checked some other safari tour operators, both local and European, but they were all more expensive (even one third more). The plan that Hartebeest proposed seemed to be good and well-balanced, so we got for it. The organization of the... More
