Several of our driver guides reported in today with exciting news on the wildebeest migration. Enormous herds of wildebeest along with some smaller herds of zebra have flooded onto the Musabi Plains in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti. The Musabi plains have been unusually quiet during this year’s northward migration season. These plains are typically packed full of all 3 migratory species (wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle) throughout May and June but this year’s unusual rainfall pattern has really disrupted the typical migratory routes. …

Quote of the Week: The Lyman Family

Many thanks to you and the staff both in the United States and Tanzania for our dream-come-true vacation! We have so many memories, stories to tell and photos! Every detail was perfect. The lodges were beautiful, the food was more than delicious and our driver/guide was top notch! He was so knowledgeable about the animals, the plants and the terrain. He could spot animals as well as an eagle! It was great seeing lions every day since they are my favorite! We also saw a …

Quote of the Week: Don Reichert

It was a real pleasure dealing with a company who knows that customer service does not stop when the check clears, but actually just begins. It is an understatement to say we had an amazing 10 day safari. Our guide had to be ADS’s best and made us feel comfortable and welcome from the moment we met him. He was very enjoyable to be around and was an expert at spotting game we had not even seen with our binoculars. His knowledge of the animals (and …

Jambo! I do not know where to start or how to express just how fabulous our safari was. Our disappointment was that it came to an end!! Thank goodness we booked with Africa Dream Safaris. [Our ADS rep’s] combination of professionalism, friendliness and knowledge was the reason for our fortuitous choice. Our time in Tanzania exceeded all our expectations and I believe we had set our hopes for a fantasy safari pretty high. […] The itinerary was perfect for the amount of time we had …

As promised in our last posting on June 15th, we would provide further details on the migration as our June safaris return back to Arusha and our driver guides report back. Special thanks to Don Vermillion who just finished his 4th Tanzania Safari with Africa Dream Safaris and his guide Peter Meena for reporting in. They covered some remote areas of the Serengeti on this latest adventure and without further delay, here is the scoop! The migration remains splintered into at least 4 or more main …

Quote of the Week: Stephanie Kahle

Getting back to work and acclimating back to this time have left us with little time in the pm to email you back. We had a wonderful time on our trip. We couldn’t believe how many animals we saw in just the first 2 days! Ryan, my 9 year old, said while grinning from ear to ear in the jeep that he would “recommend this trip to anyone”. We saw everything we had hoped to see and more. We were shocked at how close the …

Black Rhino - Ngorongoro Crater

The dry season has finally taken hold of the Serengeti. The famous southern plains, which only a few weeks back were green and filled with game, are now virtually empty except for Grant’s gazelle, warthog and ostrich. Our attention now shifts north to the beautiful western and northern woodlands of the Serengeti where we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the migration. The zebra herds have arrived in full force with large groups being spotted throughout the western corridor. However, it’s the large herds of …

Quote of the Week: Don Reichert

A trip to Africa had long been on my ‘Bucket List’ and a dream of mine but there was never anyone who could or would go with me. Little did I know that my wife, two sons and Africa Dream Safaris (ADS) planned the trip of a lifetime for me and my two sons for my 70th birthday. ADS had prepared us for every detail before we arrived in Africa with not only their outstanding website information but also personal interaction. We arrived at Kilimanjaro …

Five Hills Track - Central Serengeti - May 28th

A picture is indeed worth a 1000 words. And in this case, 7 lone zebra in the midst of 10,000 plus wildebeest. A special thanks to Julia Eakes and Harriett McCorkle who took this great shot on their African Safari. This photo was taken on May 28, 2009 on the five hills track, just a couple miles north of Simba Kopjes in the Central Serengeti. You can see Oldonoyo Rongai Hill way off to the west, which is a famous landmark in the Serengeti that …
