Egyptian Mongoose by David Chando

One of the more unusual highlights on my last safari occurred on January 4, 2013. My guests and I were exploring the South Serengeti, just to the west of Ndutu, and we spotted a rare specie of mongoose called the Egyptian Mongoose. This animal is usually completely nocturnal and is seldom seen in the daytime when their eyesight is poor. The social structure of these animals in Africa are solitary,while the species found in Asia are known to be gregarious. By ADS guide David Chando

Moments That Took Our Breath Away!

From childhood into adulthood one is exposed of Africa through many venues; books, magazines, movies, etc. But nothing can prepare you for what the human eye sees, the constant change of emotions derived from changing feelings, sense of intoxicating aromas and a never ending Serengeti full with wonders of life. I will try to expose these emotions; however, I am confident that neither the following words nor pictures will fully capture the actual moments. Some of these moments were in: o The constantly changing colors blending …

You never know what’s around the next corner by Anglebert Mrema

We were on a game drive in Seronera Valley watching a pride of six lions stalking a hippo which was passing through the area. As there were some other safari vehicles approaching, we decided to move on with our game viewing with a mission of heading for Sametu Kopjes before it gets too hot. Up around the next corner, we came across another pride of lions (this time there were 16 lions in the pride). They were looking at something we did not know on …

We Spotted a Rare Aardwolf in the Serengeti

It was a tremendous experience. Well planned and I thought ending the trip at the Crater was a good choice. Having the Day Room was wonderful. We really appreciated the welcome gifts and the cake on the last night. Anglebert worked tirelessly to make the trip perfect. He wanted to tell you about seeing the Aardwolf fighting with the family of cheetahs. It was late at night (if it was up to Anglebert, he would never go back to the camp) so the pictures are not …

A Cheetah Kill

A mother Cheetah with four cubs in the southern tip of the Serengeti park around Ndutu area finally killed a Steenbok [an antelope] after several attempts. She stalked this Steenbok and then sprinted in full speed towards the prey and quickly caught it. Her cubs followed close behind. She then released the Steenbok still alive and her cubs started practicing their hunting skills before they killed it for an evening meal. By ADS Driver Guide Russel Temu on January 10, 2013

Dawn’s FAQ of the Week: We would like to join a group of other people for the cost savings. Can you set this up for us?

We would like to join a group of other people for the cost savings. Can you set this up for us? Africa Dream Safaris offers only “private” safaris.  It is a niche in the industry we have chosen to fulfill, because we believe in the result! *Most* safari companies out there do the pre-packaged “group tours” which is a completely different type of product and is organized in a completely different way. To facilitate a “group tour”, typically a pre-planned itinerary is set up on specific calendar …
