If An African Safari Is On Your Bucket List Do It Now!
We returned from our safari on June 11, 2013. I am the Director of an Animal Shelter in New York and this trip was my life’s dream. I am very thankful to Sharon and Africa Dream Safari for making that dream come true. The attention to detail was impressive. The planning packet and handbook provided was extremely helpful.
Our adventure started in Arusha with a short flight to Western Serengeti. We decided to combine tented camps and lodges on our journey and each was more comfortable and amazing than the next. We were met at each destination with a warm towel and cool drink. Who could ask for more! BUT there was oh so much more. The food was extraordinary and the staff made you feel like family.
Now, the wildlife! Words really can’t describe seeing animals living free in their natural environment. We were able to see elephant families travel together, lions and their cubs play, hippos graze and swim, alligator’s fish and even what I labeled a baboon parade. The birds were spectacular in colors, sizes and numbers. The great migration of wildebeest and zebra should be one of the wonders of the world. A special moment was having lunch in our truck alongside a lone Cheetah. She gave us the opportunity to share her world. We saw numerous youngsters – elephants, lions, hippos, giraffes, zebra, water buffalo and wildebeest.
It seemed like a dream BUT I have thousands of pictures and memories to share.
A special thank you to our guide Peter. His knowledge of the country, its people, plants and wildlife made our safari complete. He encouraged us to experience Tanzania from sunup to sundown…..we didn’t want to miss a minute!
