Safari to Tanzania – April 2009

I have just returned from my most recent safari in Tanzania!  Re-energized and re-inspired by the abundant life and vibrant energy of the Serengeti, my head is still spinning with the vivid sights and sounds that rendered me breathless while I was there.  The purpose of my trip was two-fold.  First of all, I was in Tanzania for several business reasons.  But I think it is equally important to mention that I was also in Tanzania to actually be “on safari” and reconnect with my …

Quote of the Week: Christine Smith

My trip with Africa Dream Safaris was exceptional. Our guide was fabulous and very knowledgeable about the animals, the eco-system and life in Africa in general. Even in the more crowded areas we were often by ourselves as we decided when to leave for an early morning game drive and when to head back in. One morning, we came upon two lionesses with 3 little cubs. The lions had just killed a wildebeest. We sat and watched the little family for over an hour until …

The rains have diminished considerably but there have been a few showers over the last couple days. These scattered showers continue to keep the great herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle content to graze on the short grass plains of the Serengeti where there is plenty of potable water and fresh green grass. The massive herd mentioned in our last post that had been dominating the landscape of the Eastern Plains has finally fragmented. There still remains a large herd in the East Serengeti between Gol …

Quote of the Week: Dick and Marjie Tipton

Our first trip to East Africa was three years ago with a tour through National Geographic. This time we went with Africa Dream Safaris. The ADS experience was much better than what we experienced with NG. The four of us had our own Land Cruiser with a driver/guide. With [our guide’s] help we designed our own safari and did what we wanted, when we wanted, without worrying about other members of a tour […] We saw more animals and birds than we had ever dreamed …

The wildebeest migration continues to be concentrated on the new grass growth areas of the Eastern Plains. There are large herds of wildebeest and gazelle stretching east from Naabi Hill to Gol Kopjes and even further to the extreme eastern edge of the Serengeti Ecosystem around Lemuta Hill and Nasera Rock. As promised in our last post, below are some recent pictures submitted by our very own Dawn Anderson who has just returned from the african safari field. Make sure to double click on the …

Quote of the Week: Al and Alice Reich

This was our 3rd trip to Africa, but even so, it was unique. From the flight over Lengai at the start of our safari to the final overnight in the farmland of Karatu, it was fabulous. But even before that, we were met as we got off the flight from Amsterdam, had our visas taken care of, baggage collected, and on our way to the hotel while 95% of the other passengers were still waiting in line for immigrations. That was special. However, we came …

There is an old adage in the Serengeti that “rain means game” and this couldn’t be more on point at this very moment. Over the last five days both the Southern and Eastern plains of the Serengeti have exploded with life as the thundershowers mentioned in our last post have continued and intensified. The vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle have finally marched out of their drought refuge in the Central Serengeti woodlands and onto the short grass plains. They are home at last! Ernest …

Quote of the Week: Bob and Vivian Bousquet

This was the most interesting and enjoyable trip we have taken. The folks at Africa Dream Safaris made sure every aspect of our safari was taken care of. From picking us up at the airport to dropping us off at the end, nothing was overlooked. We can’t say enough good things about everyone we came in contact with. Especially important was our driver guide. His ability to find and see animals borders on uncanny. [Our driver guide] looked after every need in a warm and …
