ADS hires the best, most experienced, most educated Guides in all of Tanzania.

Jeff Smith Safari_March 2015_ (2)

I recently got back from Tanzania…for the third time. Three times I have stepped off that blue and white plane on the Kilimanjaro tarmac. Three times I have found my name on a hand held a place card next to an Africa Dreams Safari logo. And three times I’ve found a smiling face behind it to effortlessly shuffle me through the madness. People often ask me why I have gone to Tanzania three times, and more specifically, why I have gone back with ADS each time. I am …

ADS Truly Helped Me To Fulfill My Lifelong Dream

DSC_0111

Our eight-day safari with ADS was the trip of a lifetime for my family and me. I cannot say enough about the company, people and experiences ADS delivered to us for this trip. We did a six-day african safari tour in the Serengeti and two days at the Ngorongoro Crater. The trip was perfect. It surpassed all of our expectations. We made this trip with our family of six, my wife’s parents, and my brother. From the start of the trip to the final hours …

September In The Serengeti – An Adventure Of A Lifetime

Sep 2015 Safari Photos_Mike and Bev (28)

For the last 18 months, we have been reading of others experiences in Tanzania with Africa Dream Safaris. Now, we have the opportunity to add our input. We returned from Tanzania on the 16th of September after eleven days on safari. To say we had the time of a lifetime is to be conservative. Everything about the trip (except the plane engine that wouldn’t start on our outbound trip to the Netherlands) was perfect. We’d particularly like to acknowledge all of the efforts of Sharon (Simba Lady). If …

The Number One Trip Of Our Lives!

Cindy H Safari_May 2015 (2)

From the moment our plane touched down in Tanzania, Africa Dream Safaris exceeded every expectation we had. Marcus took care of all paperwork at the airport with no hassles. He and Timon then drove us safely to Mount Meru hotel, answering every question we could think of asking. After getting us settled in our hotel for the night, they drove us to the Arusha air strip the next morning for our flight to the Western Corridor of the country. They made sure everything was taken care …

Our ADS Experience Really Was A Dream, A Dream Come True

DSC_1690 - Version 2

We are now nearly a month post safari and it all seems like a dream now, a vivid and unforgettable dream. African Dream Safaris is no misnomer, but rather a most accurate descriptor of a company, a style, and a philosophy that succeeds on every level in delivering the promise of once in a lifetime experience. From our arrival in Arusha and the kind and welcoming reception at the airport and the rapid delivery to the comforts of our first Africa hotel, things got …

The ADS Staff Were Incredible In Managing A Very Scary Situation

(Graul)1

I traveled to Tanzania nine years ago with Africa Dream Safaris and was deeply moved by this unique experience. Seeing so many beautiful animals touched my soul and the gentle people of Tanzania captured my heart. At the time, I was very impressed with the ADS team both at home and in Africa. Their enthusiasm about Tanzania was palpable and their knowledge of the Serengeti was evident in every detail of my trip. After ten wonderful days exploring Tanzania, I knew, …

Rare Carcal Cat Spotted

We cannot thank Sharon Lyon and ADS enough for providing us with our trip of our lives! Not only was it a wonderful vacation, it was a true adventure! ADS provided EVERYTHING we needed to feel safe, secure and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. Our guide, Anglebert, was extraordinary. His knowledge of the animals created a new experience every day for us…so much so that we actually looked forward to our 5.00am wake-up calls, so that we were in the vehicle before 6.00am. …

African Dream Safaris Made Our Dream Come True!

Janet and David Safari_Oct 2015 (10)

From the moment we landed in Arusha till we left Arusha for home your staff was right on. Our adventure started as we were attempting to land in the bush and our landing was aborted due to a Giraffe on the runway! We realized right then and there that this was going to be a special experience. After we landed we met our guide, Emmanuel, who quickly became our friend. He was knowledgeable, patient, understanding and considerate. We left the airport and almost immediately we began …
