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.

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!

Every Day From Sunrise To Sunset We Saw Animal After Animal!

Thank you for an experience I will always remember and treasure. I am struggling to find the words to express my profound gratitude to our guide, Emmanuel, who I am convinced provided the best safari experience anyone could ever have. All the ADS staff, as well as the staff at the different lodges, showed us tremendous kindness and took great care of us. They made everything easy – from picking us up at the airport, quickly moving us through customs and covid tests, getting us from one lodge to the next, catering to our food preferences, and answering our endless amount of questions.

The Serengeti Is Truly An Amazing Experience!

Excellent, Outstanding, Amazing, Unforgettable are just some of the words I would use to describe our Africa Dream Safaris trip. From our first contact with ADS until the end of our tour, ADS was there to answer our questions, make recommendations and provide support for this amazing adventure. As this is the year of Covid, ADS made sure that every place we stayed and visited was safe.

Thank You For Another Wonderful Safari!

We just returned from another safari with Africa Dream Safaris and we are so glad that we didn’t put it off until another year. We found that there was no need to worry about the effect that Covid might have had on venturing on a safari to Africa. ADS only uses lodges and camps where the staff observes Covid protocols of mask wearing, hand sanitizing, and in some places, temperature readings.

Our Africa “no-longer-just-a-dream” Safari

August 2019 found us examining our extensive travel Bucket List and deciding to move “Safari to Africa” to the top. A photography friend who had traveled to Tanzania several years earlier with Africa Dream Safaris and who knew that we wanted a private safari told us, “I’ve already done the research…don’t bother looking at any other safari company!” So one phone call later, and a lengthy discussion with Sharon, Vice President of ADS, our much-anticipated safari trip planning began in earnest, and was to commence the following spring in April 2020.

And then the world stopped…

Asante Sana ADS

June 13, 2019, Seronera Valley, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. It was a fitful and exciting night. I could barely sleep in our tented lodge through the sound of roaring lions wandering around Sametu Camp. From 2am to 4am, I lay awake wondering what I would do if a lioness chose to approach my dear cub (AKA my teenage daughter).

Why We Keep Returning To Tanzania!

My husband and I have recently returned from our sixth safari with Africa Dream Safaris. Yes, six safaris. We know that is crazy. For those people scouring the internet looking for a safari company to take you to Africa and reading reviews of those companies, we will tell you why we have chosen Tanzania to go to and why we have chosen Africa Dream Safaris to take us there six times.

Tanzania Filled My Heart!

For over six years, my really great teacher friend had told me about her amazing safaris to Africa…how close they got to the animals like no other company, and ‘check out these amazing photos of the cheetah on their jeep from a few years ago.’ In turn, I was in awe of course, but the worries were there….what would I do with my two children? Would I have to get shots? What about the expenses?

Every Day Had WOW Moments!

Before my wife and I visited the Serengeti, I had 2 fears. First, I had visited the Serengeti 50 years ago and was fearful it had changed for the worse. I was pleasantly surprised that the wildlife was still very diverse and plentiful. Second, I was fearful my wife would not enjoy herself. She’s a city girl not used to camping. After our first night “glamping” she announced she loved it. She was enthralled every day with the immense vistas and close proximity to animals. She dubbed the extraordinary daily events as “WOW moments”.
