In 2019, we two couples started planning and booked a trip to Tanzania with ADS for 2020. Needless to say, COVID-19 had something to say about that plan! The trip was postponed twice, until this August 2022.
September 2022 marked our third visit to Tanzania with Africa Dream Safari. It was our best trip yet. I am frequently asked, “If you’ve been there, haven’t you already seen it all?” My response is that since this isn’t like visiting a zoo, every trip is unique and exciting. This trip was no exception.
It’s hard to put into words this trip. Africa…it has been on my bucket list forever and I knew I would make it there someday…and last week it finally happened! The best part – was that it was a total family affair in honor of our fiercely loving, fiery, Italian Mimi and her 80th trip around the sun…and what a celebration it was!! 5 families, 18 of us that included 8 adults and 10 teens made the trek to Tanzania.
Our trip, of course, was spectacular. Our guide and new best friend, Ally, was wonderful and so knowledgeable, the lodges fabulous, and the wildlife sightings superb. With this being our second trip with ADS, we expected nothing short of that and it was certainly delivered. We saw all the large predators and many smaller ones, many antelope species, primates, birds and other fun and interesting wildlife.
