I love Africa and all that it offers, to both the heart and the soul. To me there is no place quite like it on Earth. It is hard to explain this to people who have never been, but it is truly life changing, and I love to share my experiences traveling there with my friends.
An African safari was definitely a bucket list for us so when my brother in law asked us about going in February we jumped at the chance. It was great, he researched the various companies and ADS was the above and beyond the premier company to book with.
I am a professional cinematographer/photographer. And a lover of Tanzania. With regards to wildlife, the two go hand in hand.
Like everyone leaving their comments here, I recently returned from the Serengeti. And again, it has left a huge impression. The fact that this was my 5th safari with Africa Dreams alone speaks volumes… and writing an ordinary glowing “review” seems redundant. I’ve done that previously. So I’ve decided to include some pictures and address something that my friends often inquire about when I tell them about my trips to Africa… let’s call it “ What do I do next?”
We are now back from our trip with ADS and feel so blessed to have been able to do this trip and enjoy the incredible people and animals of Africa. We learned so much and have thousands of pictures to now go through to relive memories. Not only were the animals amazing but all the people we met in Africa, in the camps, shops, and along the way were so warm and generous. We learned much about the culture and history of the people as well as about the behaviors of the animals we saw.
I am a photography enthusiast and envisioned opportunities for wildlife encounters like those I saw on the ADS blog/website. The numbers of wild animals was astounding. Many animals were just yards from our land cruiser.
When we made the decision to go on Safari we had many options of tour companies. Friends recommended Africa Dream Safaris and we must say it was the best decision we could have made. ADS delivered on every promise and exceeded many.
We checked a big one off the bucket list with our private safari in Tanzania. Of course, from all we heard and read, we knew it would be quite an adventure, however no one could have ever described just how thrilling the safari would be!
I am compelled to write this blog about our recent safari experience with Africa Dream Safari for several reasons. You see, I really had no idea what I was to get out of the experience. I am not an avid photographer and I am not necessarily an ‘outdoorsman’. I just knew that I was looking for something that did not fit into my definition of a ‘standard vacation’.
We just returned from our Africa Dream Safaris trip in Tanzania. This was the adventure of our lives. We saw the big 5 and more. Every day was something new to see, learn and explore. We visited 3 different camps in the Serengeti and they were all amazing. The people and culture were an experience we will never forget.
If you have ever wished that you could go on a safari in Africa this is the company to contact. Africa dream safari turned our dreams into reality and made our once in a lifetime trip one that we can’t wait to repeat. From the first contact Sharon was receptive, helpful, and completely patient while we asked question after question, and made tons of changes to our itinerary.
I just returned from Tanzania on an Africa Dream Safaris trip. It was certainly nothing like I have ever done before and it quickly became the trip of a lifetime for me.
We just got home from our unforgettable trip to Tanzania. We are so lucky to have booked our trip through African Dream Safaris and been guided by the able and amiable Roman Desderius.
My wife and I finished our 10 day Tanzanian Safari to Serengeti Plains, Ngorongora Crater and Lake Manyara in early February. It was an amazing experience – more so than we imagined it would be. Africa Dream Safaris organized every detail perfectly. Any questions we had were immediately answered. In fact, the company provided a very detailed book before the safari filled with information about what to expect and what to take with us. One concern I had before the trip was what to do about toileting while on safari. This turned out to be a nonissue as our guide stopped every few hours at bathroom facilities
It’s hard to put an experience like this into words. Everyone I spoke to about going to Africa said it was a life changing experience, and although I knew it would be great, I didn’t expect it to be all that. One of my friends said to me before I left to ‘be prepared that Africa has a tendency to keep a piece of your heart’. Now I understand what she meant!
We had the best time with the BEST guide Tumsifu this past March. He took us places other safari companies did not go and went above and beyond our expectations. We saw so many animals, including animals we did not expect to see like a tortoise. We also seen a baby Thomson gazelle minutes after it was born, the mother was still cleaning it off and it couldn’t even walk yet.
