My brother and I found Africa Dream Safaris through a referral, and from the moment Dawn reached out to us, we were impressed with the level of detail, knowledge, and passion that was exhibited throughout the process. This was our first safari trip, so we needed some hand holding throughout the process; Dawn and team were very patient throughout and organized a wonderful itinerary for our 10 night stay in Tanzania.
Once we touched down, the VIP lounge service made sure our immigration and customs experience was a positive one, and there we met the ADS ground team. We flew out to the northern Serengeti the next morning, and we immediately saw the wildebeest river crossing.
Our driver, David, knew all of the right spots to view the crossing and as we waited for the wildebeest, he taught us about the wildlife in the area and their habits. From the first interaction, we knew that for the next 9 days, we would get to see and learn more than we expected – and we were right.
Every day felt like a new adventure, and we had the luxury of seeing something new each time we set out for our drive. Lions feeding, cheetahs crossing for the night, leopards relaxing in their tree, caracals and servals hunting, a rhino out in the open, beautiful landscape, and much more – we got spoiled with sights that most people dream of seeing.
In addition to the exciting drives, our accommodations were amazing. The location and service in each of these camps were top notch.
We had many amazing photo opportunities, but they only tell half of the story. As David said, the best photographs are the ones in your head. We encourage anyone thinking about doing a similar trip to take the leap with ADS, and it will change your view of the world for the better.
