Oh my, where do I begin. Our vacation started on July 21, 2021, in Washington D.C. We arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport and a representative from Africa Dream Safaris was waiting for us, just as promised, at the airport. We were whisked through the airport to the Covid testing site, and in no time at all we were on our way to the Arusha Coffee Lodge. What a magnificent place! We rested up and the next day we were promptly picked up and taken to the small airport nearby for the flight to the Serengeti.
Our trip to Tanzania was one of the most unforgettable trips of our lives. From the initial planning stages, Sharon Lyon helped put together the perfect trip that provided us with the opportunity to experience everything the Tanzania culture has to offer. From the moment we landed, everyone we met treated us like family.
We are delighted to announce that all of our safari guides have now been vaccinated with the single shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine and as an extra layer of precaution we are giving each guide a PCR test 3-days prior to the start of every safari. Rest assured that once you set foot on the tarmac at Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania, we will make you feel as safe as humanly possible with all the conveniences and safety precautions only a private safari company like ADS can provide. Please read our Tanzania Travel FAQs below for more information.
I would like to start with an apology for the length of this review. This experience is so profound that it warrants a full description of all our encounters and the many wonders of a Trip of a Lifetime, so read on if you like.
