Words Fail Us…

…as we seek to describe our safari. Each day was filled with wonderful surprises. To name only a few—the exciting wildebeest crossing at the Mara River within hours of our arrival, herds of elephants, elegant giraffes, an exciting lion kill, hours of watching cheetahs, leopards, lion prides, crazy baboons, monkeys, gorgeous birds, and peaceful sunsets with acacia trees silhouetted in the distance. Michael, our driver/guide was wonderful. His knowledge of wildlife, history, and culture were of great interest to us. His sense of humor and fun-loving …

Dawn’s FAQ of the Week: When is the Best Time of Year to Go on Safari in Tanzania?

Let’s face it.   An African safari is a big trip for most people.  It’s an endeavor which requires a significant investment of time, energy and money.  This really is a “once in a lifetime” type of experience for many folks who may never get the opportunity to go back to Africa again, so naturally everyone wants to get it right the first time. “What time of year is the BEST time of year to go on safari?” seems like a critical question, especially because so …

We Left Our Hearts In Africa

The trip and experience of a lifetime is how we have been describing our recent safari in gorgeous Tanzania with Africa Dream Safaris. Each day was a new adventure with Anglebert our driver/ guide. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about the animals and birds, the history and culture of Tanzania, but he was also skilled at reading animal behavior and predicting what they might do next, affording us opportunity for wonderful viewing and photography. Our safari with ADS started on Nov. 1, 2012 in the …

Dawn’s FAQ of the Week: If it is a full moon in my home country, is it also a full moon in Tanzania?

  Yes. The phases of the Moon are the same all around the world. Any two places that can see the Moon at the same time will see the same phase.

This is the same moment all over the world, but will be a different local time for every time zone in the world. You can find out what phase the moon will be …

Dawn’s FAQ of the Week: Travelling with a CPAP Machine

I use a CPAP Machine to help me sleep.  Will this be a problem on safari? CPAP machines seems to be pretty common these days. But, since the machines need a power source, it is important to be aware that some lodges only have generator power, and only run their generator during certain hours of the day. Even lodges that operate 24/7 electricity, in ‘the bush’ there can sometimes be unplanned power interruptions. Taking this into consideration, I would strongly recommend you consider bringing along a …

The Perfect Way To Celebrate Our 45th Anniversary

We decided a safari was the perfect way to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We have wanted to go to Africa for years but for a variety of reasons never got around to it. We quickly found out that deciding to go was the easy part – choosing a company to travel with was an almost overwhelming problem. We are avid photographers – amateur, but serious. We are also experienced travelers – but Africa was an entirely different concept for us. We wanted a tour company …
