It’s hard to believe but we just finished our fifth safari with Africa Dream Safaris. We keep heading back to Africa because of the warmth of the people and the new experiences we always receive from nature. We keep going back with ADS because their service is excellent. We know that there will never be a problem from the minute we land at the airport to the time we are dropped back off at the airport. This trip to Africa included a climb up Kilimanjaro and ADS was most helpful in arranging transportation associated with the climb.
We felt like VIP’s throughout our stay. We had welcome back cakes and baskets, a congratulatory cake for climbing Kilimanjaro, a private sundowner and fireside dinner, and again, excellent service throughout.
This safari once again provided us with new animal sightings – a serval cat, two honey badgers, colobus monkeys, and an albino baboon. We also saw our first lion kill – a pride of lions taking down a full grown buffalo.
For the first time, we chose to also go to Tarangire and Arusha National Parks and were very pleased that we did. The concentration of animals at both parks was very good and we really enjoyed the Maramboi Lodge near Tarangire.
We especially want to thank our guide, Ellison, for his patience, sense of humor, and imparting his knowledge on the animals and birds. We started at 6 a.m. every morning and were out all day. The short rains were in short supply this year and the animals might have been a bit elusive, but Ellison did his best to give us some amazing sights.
We also want to thank Michael Wishner for arranging the entire safari with all of the extra transportation, picking up my husband and I at separate times, for suggesting new lodges, and for the overall VIP experience. Thanks, Michael.
We highly recommend Africa Dream Safaris. We’ve been going with them since 2010 and they never disappoint. We also read all of the other customer reviews and know that the glowing recommendations from them are spot on. This company is the best!
