We had the trip of a lifetime, thanks to ADS and our driver Chris. From the moment we landed in the Kilimanjaro Airport, ADS was there to make sure everything went smoothly. We choose to have an extra day in Arusha which we would totally recommend because, by the time you get the Arusha Coffee Lodge it’s after 10:00pm. The driving tour of Arusha, the cultural center and the coffee tour were all possible because of the extra day.
The following day the safari started, and we were totally amazed. The very first day we saw: the wildebeest migration, zebras, elephants, lions, hyenas. We thought after that, the rest of the safari would be a let down. We were wrong!! Every day there were more animals, birds, and scenery to be awestruck over.
We loved the tented lodges (Mara River Camp and Seronera Sametu Camp) and listening to the animals at night. The views were wonderful and the sunrise and sunsets were breathtaking. The food was really good and the box lunches were huge! We could never finish them.
Our guide/driver Chris was outstanding. His ability to spot the animals had us in awe, especially while driving over all types of terrain. But what really made him stand out for us, was his knowledge and respect for the animals. He is truly a wonderful person.
The one thing we wish we had done in advance was to learn about the customs and culture of Tanzania. A good book to read is: The essential guide to customs and culture, Tanzania.
We are already starting to talk and dream about another safari with ADS. This trip was truly a dream come true for us.
