We Saw 84 Lions, 9 Cheetahs and 7 Leopards!

We’re still enjoying our safari ‘high’ and are very excited to share our adventure with you! The trip you planned for us was a fabulous overview of all of Tanzania. We started at the Ngorongoro Crater, turned south to beautiful Tarangire, traveled through the central Serengeti, headed north to track the wildebeest herds along the Mara River and concluded our adventure in the Lobo game reserve. After our group of ten arrived at the Ndutu airstrip, we were met by our guides Arnold Mushi and Thomson Maleki …

We Witnessed Close-Up The Many Wonders Of The Serengeti

From the warm greeting at Kilimanjaro Airport to the waves goodbye at the Lobo Airstrip eight days later, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our Africa Dream Safari experience. Our guide, Michael, couldn’t have been more pleasant and knowledgeable. His instincts expertly positioned us to witness close-up the many wonders of the Serengeti, and his information and insights were fun and fascinating. The accommodations were all first-rate and the friendly service was greatly appreciated. Our first morning at the Ngorongoro Crater was so exciting, I feared …

By David Chando with Marty and Louisa from New York

By Godson Mbonye – Enormous Herds of Wildebeest in Serengeti

On 6th July I was heading to Lemala Mara Camp near Kogatende and the Mara River to prepare for the arrival of my four guests named Smith Family. Kogatende is approximately 500kms from Arusha town. On 07th July I was on time at the Kogatende Airstrip at 09:55am as the guests were landing with Regional Air. I informed them on each and everything concerning our trip and wildlife viewing in general. After my initial briefing, we went straight to the Mara River where we saw a …

By Peter Meena – Serengeti Safari

We spotted this female cheetah near the Maasai Kopjes in the Central Serengeti. We watched as she began stalking a Thomson Gazelle. With much anticipation, she finally took off and sprinted towards the gazelle and was able to chase it down in less than a minute. It was an awesome spectacle to watch. This big herd of Gnu’s was seen at Nyamalumbwa plains in the North Serengeti. The area looked so beautiful covered by large herds of wildebeest. This herd was moving from Nyamalumbwa plains towards …

At First We Were Scared, But…

We had the most amazing safari imaginable!  It wouldn’t have been the same without our guide Anglebert (pictured above with a friendly cheetah we encountered).  His timing was just right and he captured every opportunity to see and experience the animals in their natural habitats. He enticed a cheetah to visit us in our car after eating its kill.  At first we were scared, but then he explained that it wouldn’t hurt us.  He knew how to manipulate the car just right and give the cheetah …

By Russel Temu – Wildebeest Crossing the Mara River

This is Russell Temu, a professional guide with Africa Dream Safaris. I have some very exciting news to share with the readers of the ADS blog having just returned from the Serengeti National Park. I started my latest safari with a group of 6 persons from the USA with the last name of Bertini on July 5th when I picked the guests up from the Kogatende Airstrip. This airstrip is located just south of the Mara River in the Northern Serengeti. We spent our first …

The Serengeti Is Not A Petting Zoo!

Day 4 – June 15, 2013, Serengeti National Park Heather and I were standing on the very back seats of the Land Cruiser sticking out of the roof hatch from the waist up. The big bull elephant that was slowly walking up from behind was just about close enough for a pat on the trunk. Just one more step. Mom began offering cautionary driving tips to our guide, “Francis, you might want to pull ahead just a bit!” Her concern met an instantaneous and derisive chorus …

By Anglebert Mrema – A Delightful Experience

I have just completed my trip with Marla and Lauren and we had such an exciting experience in the Serengeti ecosystem.  The year looks to be unusual due to the lack of rains and the rivers have no visible water supply, but unforgettable safari experience are still to be had in the dry season. The cats, ungulates, birds, and great migration crossings are among the life time experiences one may never forget. One of the highlights of this trip was spotting a mama cheetah with two …
