Tanzania Trip Diary

Jan 31, 2012 Leaving this evening at 6:20 PM to Newark on Continental. Hopefully left no hanging chads behind- we started packing 10 days ago and hopefully all last minute stuff was anticipated and dealt with. Too late now. Stayed at Fairfield Inn at Newark Airport.

Seats are definitely bigger, pretty comfortable although they don’t retract much. Food was …

Diary Of An Adventure

Trip to Africa – January of 2012. January 22, Sunday Flight to Kilimanjaro was smooth except for first 10 seconds after liftoff.

Our favorite day was having breakfast on the hood of our car while a herd of elephants strolled behind us! ADS is a great organization and we’ll recommend them to anyone who …

Dawn’s Reading List

Okay, so many clients ask me what books to read before embarking on their safari adventure.  Some people want to learn more about Tanzania, and others just want a great story relating to the area.  Well there are MANY great books out there, and many of them are already listed on the ADS reading list.  I’ve read most of these books myself, but the truth is I do have my favorites!  If I had to pick a *TOP 3* favorite all time African Safari books, …
