Seeing is Believing!

We recently returned from our “trip of a lifetime!” We heard that phrase before we went…but, seeing is believing! Although we had read about Safaris (compliments to ADS for an educational website including testimonials) from other visitors to Africa and heard stories from friends, our expectations were far surpassed by the trip itself. Africa Dream Safaris was so helpful as they greeted us (“jambo!”), assisted us as we settled in to our lodging and as we continued on our safari where we felt safe at all …

Going The Extra Mile For Sebastian

ADS proudly sponsors The School of St. Jude. Here’s their monthly update: Two Lower Primary teachers at St Jude’s are going beyond the normal duties of teaching to help a little prep child, who is overcoming major hurdles, as he has albinism and suffers severe visual problems. Martha Dello and Anna Nnko are up for the challenge though and are doing all they can to help Sebastian succeed in his studies. Sebastian started at St Jude’s in January and has gone through so much before he has …

The Weather Was Perfect

Our group spent eight wonderful days on safari in the South and Central Serengeti starting April 15. The weather was perfect…maybe a total of 15 minutes of daytime rain, plus a couple of showers at night while we slept. We were fortunate to see three lion-wildebeast encounters (the lions won) and even lions mating. We saw cheetahs, leopards, rhinos, hippos…the whole list of hoped for game. We loved our guides Russel and Thomson. We enjoyed their senses of humor and appreciated their enthusiasm and ability to see …

Memories That Will Forever Be Etched In Our Mind

A dream come true, this African Safari! Asante Sana to all of you remarkable people of ADS and Tanzania, East Africa-What a trip! From the moment we landed in Arusha until our departure the days just flew by with each day bringing new and exciting wonders. Our guide, Arnold, was the most knowledgeable and friendliest person to have lead our safari. His instinct positioned us expertly as close as possible to witness the many wonders of the Serengeti. Every day a …

Truly A Bucket List Vacation

Well, after a long, very long trip back home, we are finally re-adjusted and have assimilated everything we had experienced and as we begin to share our experiences with everyone, the excitement continues to build as if we were still on our wonderful trip. First of all, a very big thank you to Sharon for arranging a wonderful itinerary. We wanted to experience a diversified safari and that is exactly what she planned for us. We had planned a 10 day safari in addition …

Count The Legs And Divide By Four

It’s a few hours short of a week since we returned home from our Safari. Surely the jet lag will end soon. We enjoyed our trip even more than we anticipated. We saw every Wildebeest and Zebra in Tanzania within the first few hours (count the legs and divide by four). Also Lions, Hyenas, Giraffes, Elephants, Jackals, Cape Buffalo; Warthogs, Hippos, Baboons, Impala, Gazelles (Tommys and Grants), Dik Dik, Hartebeest; vultures, and more. We didn’t think our guide Peter would be able to top the first day …

Our Wonderful Dream Safari

We cannot believe that the Safari we planned and contemplated for over a year has already come and gone! ADS exceeded our every expectation… and them some! The glow returns every time we look at the many pictures we brought back from our daily game drives. From our arrival in Arusha with ADS staff awaiting us, to our warm welcome at the Mount Meru Resort, to our flight into the bush, to our Mbuzi Mawe and Lake Masek tented Lodges and the Ngorongoro Serena lodge on …

The Migration Was Both Humbling And Awe-Inspiring

Before I went on this safari trip, I really didn’t do any research. I wanted to cross this off my bucket list together with my son. I expected to see lots of animals and I expected to stay in luxury lodges. However, what I didn’t expect was the beauty and solitude seen and felt within Serengeti National Park. Furthermore, I was fortunate to witness the display of stars that splashed across the sky each night. The opportunity to be able to witness the migration of the …

Magical Moments In The Serengeti

Our safari two weeks ago to Tanzania was beyond our expectations! We had so many magical moments! Our first animal siting was a group of zebras on the runway when we were trying to land causing us to make a second approach! We also saw an elephant and giraffe out the plane window just as we were landing. What a start! We saw a pride of 10 or more lions, a set of cubs, wildebeest, cheetahs and a host of rare birds all on …

Trip Overview – March 2014

Our green season safari far exceeded our expectations and we have been privileged to enjoy a dry season ADS trip. Each season is unique, each driver-guide brings his own special knowledge and passion, and each day unfolds in ways that are unimaginable. We were greeted at the airport by Faith and Timan – lovely, warm ambassadors for ADS and Tanzania. They whisked us through the visa process and drove us to the Arusha Coffee Lodge where we enjoyed a two night stay prior to our flight …
