Serengeti Wins Africa’s Best National Park For 4th Straight Year!

The Serengeti has done it again with a recent win at the World Travel Awards hosted in Nairobi. That’s four years in a row the Serengeti has won the coveted award for ‘Best National Park in Africa’. To celebrate, we thought it would be fun to compile our favorite video clips taken over the past couple of months by our very own guides here at Africa Dream Safaris. We hope you enjoy this video tribute to the amazing Serengeti Ecosystem and make sure to expand to full screen!

Take The Time To Do The Things You Never Had!

Africa was never on our radar or bucket list, but my dad had planted the seed with my brother and mentioned it to us and the search was on! Being recently retired there was never a hesitation in saying, yes!  Not knowing anyone who had been on a safari led to our search and exploring on our own. The goal was Africa with the 4 of us in a safari truck and to be able to see what we could see!

From Beginning To End, The Africa Dream Team Delivered!

This trip was a long time in the planning. From our first contact back in 2019, our Safari consultant Dawn Anderson was encouraging, a wealth of knowledge and patient. We knew we wanted to do a safari for our 30th Wedding Anniversary in September 2022 and we knew we wanted Tanzania – the migration, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater. We also wanted a private experience so we could go at our pace and see what we wanted to see.

Who Needs Roads Where We Traveled!

When we decided to go to Africa for a Safari we spent a month looking into different companies. We literally started from scratch not knowing a thing. We decided Africa Dream Safaris was the best choice. That had to be the understatement of the year. From the initial questions, conference calls, emails and phone calls, we were constantly impressed and excited.

A Trip Of A Lifetime For Our Family!

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.

The VIP Treatment At The Airport Was A Real Treat!

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.

We Had Many Amazing Photos But They Only Tell Half The Story!

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.

We Had Lions And Elephants Right Next To Our Vehicle!

This past May we were fortunate enough to go on a safari and we chose Africa Dream Safaris to help us. Africa Dream was the best decision! One of us is a bit of a nervous traveler, and they took care of everything – there was nothing that went wrong – if there was, we never knew as they took care of it immediately. Before our trip all our questions were answered in a timely manner, and in detail!

Incredible Wildlife Viewing From The Moment You Arrive!

We would like to start by saying African Dream Safaris surpassed any expectation we had of a family safari in July 2022!  Having the uniqueness of our kids being ten years apart we wanted a safari experience that was right for our family!  Our guide, Emmanuel, fit right in with our family from the start and was extremely knowledgeable of all the animals and culture!

Thank You For A Wonderful Vacation!

Overall, for our family, our safari was an unforgettable and, most likely, a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience. However, if we are ever fortunate enough to go on another safari in the Serengeti, we will definitely use Africa Dream Safaris again. For anyone considering a personal safari tour, they should book with Africa Dream Safaris and here is why…

Africa Dream Come True!

First of all, the world owes the people of Tanzania a dept of gratitude for conserving the Serengeti ecosystem. It is a place like no other! Africa Dream Safaris works within the culture and the ecosystem to share the magnificence that is the Serengeti. The relationships they have built were evident at every turn and I think that’s a testimonial to any company.

Africa, really?

That was my wifes’ reaction when I made the suggestion for our next trip. Africa had always been on our radar but it had always been a “back burner” thing. However, after watching a cute movie about Africa on Netflix it was suddenly back at the top of my list.

Now the real work began. What kind of safari? Group? Private? How much? And where in Africa? Obviously, the choices were many and diverse. However, after consulting my crystal ball (and Forbes “Best Safari Companies in Africa” on the internet and figuring out the finances, we decided to give Africa Dream Safaris (ADS) a look.
