Lilac Breasted Roller - Serengeti National Park

Lions, lions and more lions! That just about sums up the month of August here in the Serengeti. It would seem that on just about every game drive in the Lobo Valley of the North Serengeti or in the Seronera Valley of the Central Serengeti, our guests are being overwhelmed with incredible lion action. One returning group reported seeing 142 different lions over the course of their 10 day safari (8 actual nights in the bush). Way to go Monica LaRose family. That has to …

Quote of the Week: Laurie and Scott McGinnis

Thanks to [ADS] for making Laurie’s and my safari our trip of a lifetime! We reviewed numerous other safari operators and were extremely impressed with the professionalism, thoroughness, and thoughtfulness of ADS. I would like to highlight the extra care ADS delivered and why we chose this company. First, we wrote many tour operators but had exchanged five emails with ADS before the others replied back to our first inquiries. Second, the thoroughness of information provided by ADS made us feel comfortable before we departed …

Quote of the Week: Adrian and Michelle Magee

It’s hard for us to believe that we have actually been back from our fantastic African Safari now for 6 weeks. We had a truly outstanding safari. It was everything you had promised and then some. Our guide and indeed everybody we met were exceptional. Your interpretation of our wishes in setting up our itinerary were spot on. The Crater Lodge is a one-of -kind/not to be missed if at all possible. We loved Gibbs Farm. The Private camping, The Migration Tented Lodge, all outstanding. …

[…] While on safari, my wife and I would continually say there seemed to be a surprise around every corner. When we thought we had seen every lion in the Serengeti, there would be one eating a large kill. When we thought there was nothing left to see on the plains, there would …

Quote of the Week: Sal & Thomas LaForgia

An African safari had been a dream of mine for many years and the ADS adventure far exceeded my wildest expectations… a private custom safari is the only way to go… it definitely proves the paradigm less is more… Thank you! The picturesque/vastness of the surroundings and its countless inhabitants was unimaginable … the experience to go off road and view from the open top vehicle on the move will never be forgotten. The countless lions and lionesses, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, wildebeests, zebras, giraffes… I could …

We have some exciting news from the bush today! The first sizeable herds of wildebeest were seen crossing the Mara River yesterday in the North Serengeti a few miles from the Kogatende ranger post. A few of our lucky clients out on african safari tours were absolutely delighted and we hear the crocodiles were equally thrilled. It’s always a magical moment every year when the first big herd of wildebeest launch themselves into the Mara River. There is no doubt now that we are in …

The wildebeest migration continues to be dispersed in 3 main groups. The two smaller groups are located in the Northern Serengeti (specifically with one group just north of Bologonja Springs and the other in the Lamai Triangle). The third and largest group is still stagnated in the Western Serengeti (mainly north of the Grumeti River from the Ruwana Plains into the Grumeti Game Reserve). Our colleagues in the Masai Mara are reporting only a few widely scattered herds of wildebeest. Our guides reported in today …

Last week was an exciting week here in the Serengeti with the arrival of the President of Tanzania, Mr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete. It was even more exciting for one of our groups on tanzania safari who were able to meet the president as they happened to be at the Seronera airstrip when he first arrived. This group concluded their seven day safari in the Serengeti with spotting 5 leopards, 7 cheetahs, 62 lions, the wildebeest crossing the Grumeti River and meeting the President of Tanzania. …
