By Reggie Matemu – Report For Safari Ending March 2, 2013

My name is Reggie and I am a driver-guide with Africa Dream Safaris. I have just returned home after completing a spectacular safari with my two guests from America named Nancy and Rachel. It was a very nice 8-night safari itinerary (Feb 22nd to March 2nd) with 3 nights at Seronera Sametu Camp in the Central Serengeti, 3 nights at Lake Masek Camp in South Serengeti and 2 nights at the end of the safari at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge.

There were many highlights on the safari but some of particular interest were as follows:

- We saw a mother cheetah who had a successfully hunted and killed a gazelle. After she and her cubs finished eating they came and used our vehicle for shade. They were very friendly they also tried to climb the vehicle. See the pictures below if you don’t believe me!

- We saw another female cheetah who also had a successful hunt but this time she managed to capture a baby zebra.

- We found a serval cat who had been killed by a leopard and was hanging from a tree. This shows how aggressive cats can get to each other due to competition over limited food resources.

- Baby wildebeest being born!

- Several very nice bush picnics including a picnic breakfast at Ngoitokitok picnic site in the Ngorongoro Crater (last picture shown below)

Much regards,

    It was wonderful to see Reggie’s comments about his recent safari. Reggie was our guide for 2 weeks in the Serengeti five years ago. Reggie you were the BEST. It would be wonderful to hear back from you.

    So good to see Reggie’s pictures and hear of his adventures. He was our guide in 2008 when my whole family got together for an 8 day safari. We love you Reggie. He is the BEST!!!

    I love reading Reggie’s posts! Our 10 day safari is planned for April of 2014 and we have requested Reggie be our guide. He came highly recommended by our friends Jody and Steve, who have been on 2 ADS safaris. Can’t wait!!!

    Reggie, SOOOO good to see your smiling face. The eight of us who were on a 12 day safari with you in October 2010 often talk about you as we fondly remember our wonderful adventure in Tanzania.

      Hi Reggie, Our friend, Mary Coslett, raves about her safari with you a few years ago, so we requested that you be our guide when we start our safari with ADS on Sept 19 this year. Stan and Jeannie are the friends with whom we will be traveling. Cheers
