Letter from the Founder
Imagine endless savannas teeming with millions of wildebeest, towering boulders sprawling with tawny lions, and collapsed volcanoes brimming in mist. Imagine a place completely unaware of civilization where wildlife still reigns supreme. It is hard to believe a place like this still exists, but it does. It is called Tanzania. The first time I experienced this wilderness, it captured my soul. I felt compelled to share this experience with others. This calling, this passion, this dream was the start of Africa Dream Safaris.
As other safari tour companies organized bustling caravans of minivans, packed with tourists, I saw them missing the true African wilderness experience. An alternative became apparent to me: The Private Safari. Group safaris and packaged tours meant unpleasant congestion, generic itineraries, and bickering clients with competing agendas. The value of a Private Safari became as obvious to me as a million thundering wildebeest. Wildlife-focused itineraries, personalized service, and off-the-beaten-path adventures quickly became hallmarks of Africa Dream Safaris.
Driven by passion, Africa Dream Safaris has grown. We now engage over 100 individuals, most local Tanzanians, including over twenty of the finest driver-guides in all of East Africa. From our personal safari planners in the U.S. to our gracious meet and greet staff in Tanzania, the entire ADS team aims to exceed our guests' expectations. From the moment you sign up with us, you will become one of our family. We've all fallen in love with Tanzania, and we know you will too. We can't wait to take you there!
