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…
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.
When Brian and I thought about going on a safari we had no idea where to start. We heard about safaris in South Africa, but wanted to do something else. I did research on the country, safari companies and the one that kept coming up with all 5 star reviews were ADS, and they did not disappoint. It was all true what people describe about the personal service delivered.
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).
When we returned from our Africa Dream Safaris vacation in July 2018, we tried with great difficulty to explain to our friends and family the magic of our experience. We describe it with this analogy: “When you see a wildebeest at the zoo, you think to yourself, “Wildebeest…boring….let’s go see the elephants!” However, on Safari, it feels as though you have been transported back in time when you see thousands upon thousands of those very animals running straight toward your vehicle!
This Africa Dream Safari was a ‘top of the bucket list’ adventure for my daughter and me, as we both celebrate milestone birthdays this year. With the help of Dawn’s expert planning, our dream trip was amazing!
It is just before daybreak. A slight chill is in the air. The promise of a pristine day. Two majestic lion brothers come strutting down the road toward our Land Cruiser just 10 minutes outside of Sametu Camp in the Central Serengeti. What a sight, so close it took our breath away!
Our Africa Dream Safari was wonderful. It was our most adventurous, educational, stimulating and “feel good” vacation ever. We loved all of it.
ADS was the perfect fit for our Bucket List trip of a lifetime! A week of private safari – just the two of us, a “beast” of a jeep, and our wonderful guide/driver, George, made for an unforgettable trip. George obviously loves his job and would plan each day to be more special than the previous one – quite an achievement!
My husband and I just recently returned from our safari in Tanzania. Dawn Anderson at African Dream Safari’s put together our itinerary with our guidance on locations we wanted to visit. We travel quite a bit, but this was the best trip we have ever been on.
We landed at the Kilimanjaro Airport and were met by African Dream Safari representatives and, from that moment on, they took care of every single detail. After spending two nights in Arusha we flew to the Grameti Airstrip in the Western Serengeti and met Bennett, our driver-guide, who immediately became our friend. He quickly honed in to what we really wanted to see and do over the next eight days. It became obvious that he had an uncanny ability to know where our favorite wildlife were and he took us there. Although we saw thousands of migrating wildebeest and zebras, most of the pictures which follow are of single, or just a few, of a given species. We were amazed at how close Bennett could get our vehicle to the animals and/or get the animals to come to us.
Africa Dream Safaris provided my family with the best vacation possible. From the very beginning, Dawn went above and beyond on planning, not overlooking any detail. From the minute we landed in Kilimanjaro, everything was handled for us. From the pickup at the airport to the day to day traveling around Tanzania, everyone was friendly and everything went according to plan.
Guide Emmanuel and Family
From the moment we arrived in Arusha and were greeted by Joseph and Matthius, our trip was flawless, liberally sprinkled with surprises around every turn that would delight even the most seasoned traveler, and just simply, the most epic adventure.
My husband and I just returned from the trip of a lifetime! Through Africa Dream Safaris we traveled from Arusha to the Northern Serengeti, through the Central Serengeti to Ngorogoro Crater and onto Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park. We stayed in tent camps, lodges and hotels. The itinerary unfolded seamlessly.
Our recent trip to Tanzania with Africa Dream Safari was life-altering, to say the least. On June 16, my husband and I, our children (ages 7 and 9) and my parents arrived not knowing what to expect. Tanzania is a truly amazing country, one that I missed before we even left. We felt very welcomed and safe and learned so much in just 10 short days. It is difficult to describe to other’s the scenery, the people, and the feeling you get while there.
