I’ll Be Back To Africa!

DSC_0197

This is my sixth safari, and my second with Africa Dream Safaris. I have taken enough safaris to compare different outfitters, and I go with ADS from now on for a number of reasons. First of all is the service, from both Sharon in the U.S. as well as the team in Arusha. On this particular safari, we had a problem at one of our locations, and our guide immediately contacted the office in Arusha who made things right. Which is what I’ve come to expect …

We Were So Happy We Opted For A Private Safari!

My husband John and I have been home barely two weeks and already we have shared with innumerable people our experiences and photos from what can only be described as a trip of a lifetime. After much research (on my husband’s part) we decided on Africa Dream Safari. One selling point for us was the concept of a private, custom safari. After seeing crowded (sometimes with 6 or 8 passengers) vehicles during some game drives we were so happy we opted for a private safari. Our …

What a once in a lifetime adventure we had in Tanzania with our friends, Neil and Sharon! We were met at the airport in the Serengeti National Park by our guide, Ally, and on the first day we saw all of the big five animals except the black rhino! Ally was so knowledgeable and helpful. He gave us information that we would have never known without him telling us. He was certainly a good teacher. His insights were intriguing and we …

The Best Vacation Decision We Have Ever Made

After more than a year of planning and anticipation, our dream of an African safari became a reality when we were joined by our two adult sons and their wives in Tanzania for what can only be described as the trip of our lifetime! No amount of research or planning could have prepared us for the thrill of seeing for ourselves the endless line of wildebeest and zebra moving south through the plains of the Serengeti, the successful hunt of the cheetah amongst the …

The Photo Opportunities Were Incredible

We recently returned from our February 12th to February 24th Tanzanian safari with ADS. This truly was the trip of a lifetime. We were so pleased every step of the way with the staff at ADS. Dawn was truly wonderful in answering all our questions as we made our plans. I cannot say enough about our driver, Patrick. From the first day with us, he was a fountain of knowledge and a master at scouting out wildlife. He was a walking encyclopedia of information about animals, …

We Would Highly Recommend ADS

We had a fantastic safari in Tanzania through ADS. The itinerary Sharon put together for our family of four was great and the accommodations and service at each hotel/lodge/camp were excellent. Most importantly, our guide, Immanual (Ima) really made the difference. He was so experienced, knowledgeable, easy to get along with and enthusiastic. He also had an incredible ability to know where to find all the animals. All in all, a great trip. We would highly recommend ADS to anyone …

We Had Lions Roar Right Outside Our Tent!

We have just returned from a fabulous trip to Tanzania. It was a once in a lifetime trip for us. Special thanks to Dawn who patiently answered all our many questions over the past year. Our driver guide Patrick was great! He found all the animals he knew we wanted to see including the black rhino (we saw four in the same day), and he was a wealth of knowledge about all the animals. We stayed in three camps (Seronera …
