They gave us detailed information about our trip, answered all our questions, gave us someone to call for our plane reservations (who notifies ADS of any changes), provides a guide and jeep for us to have the entire time we are there. Each meal is provided. The guide is extremely knowledgeable about birds, plants, all the wildlife, and knows where the animals are most likely to be and at what times. We are provided with a phone and can contact ADS anytime throughout the trip if there is any problem. This trip was the most fantastic trip I've ever taken.

Africa Dream Safaris made sure the entire trip met or surpassed what I told them I wanted to accomplish while in Tanzania. They matched me up with the guide I needed and he did everything possible to make my journey a trip of a lifetime.Yes, I would recommend them and do another trip with them if I get the opportunity in the future.
It was an amazing Journey!

African Dream Safari is a first class operation. They took care of my wife and me from the very start of our planning of our trip until after it was completed. Two of my good friends had used them for their trips and gave them outstanding recommendations. The fact that both of my friends has used them for two trip spoke volumes to me. Every question we had was answered fully in our planning phase. From the time we landed in Arusha until we left, someone from ADS was there to guide us. We spent 2 weeks in the Serengeti and loved every minute of it. We returned with home with many outstanding memories from our trip. We fully enjoy sharing our photographs with our friends and family. We will be talking about this trip for years to come. If you have any desire to go to Africa, I would fully recommend using ADS so you can enjoy your trip completely with minimal concerns.

Our safari exceeded all of our expectations and it was because of the amazing people at Africa Dream. Our trip advisor was so helpful assisting with the planning and the team that met us when we landed at Kilimanjaro Airport and ushered us through customs, to the individual and special welcome at each lodge, and our knowledgeable and attentive guide, our African safari vacation was truly an awesome, once in a lifetime experience.

Our Africa Dream Safari was well a organized, luxurious, courteous, thorough and a marvelous life experience. Dawn organized our safari. She thought of everything and communicated well. Our safari guide, Ellison, was personable, spoke English well, a great driver, knew the Serengheti well and found every animal we hoped to see. He went out of his way to find the great migration herd. Africa Dream Safaris provided an outstanding safari experience and proved to be a good value. We highly recommend them.

We have a dream experience with Africa Dream Safaris. They went out of their way to make the reservation/planning process seamless. Once we arrived they treated us like royalty making our trip unforgettable. We are trying to figure out when we can go back and we will definitely use Africa Dream Safari.

Going to Africa was an adventure that is difficult to express in words. We went as a family of 4 adults and the private safari was all that we hoped for and more than we could have imagined. Each day was a different experience even though it was the same animals. We gained a great deal of information, shared laughter, wooed and awed like children. Each part of what African Dreams says they do for you, they do. Best decision we could have made. Please consider ADS. You won’t be sorry..

I would highly recommend ADS. I've written a very favorable blog with pictures for their website. They were so helpful with the planning and execution of the trip. I can speak more highly of them

From the minute we were greeted at the Kilimanjaro airport by African Dream Safari we were 100 percent taken care of. Our driver, Wilfred, was amazing! The camps / lodging, food and staff was top notch! Not only the animals we saw, but also the culture we experienced was unbelievable. We would recommend African Dream Safari to all.

I have been back from a Trip of a life time and I can now cross off two things off of my bucket list: A African photo safari and a hot air balloon ride.
We saw so much in a short time. I was lucky enough to go with my dad, step mom and my step aunt (they had gone on their first safari three years ago). We saw Lions, 2 leopards together which we were told was rear, lots of olive baboons, black-backed jackals, spotted hyenas and babies, banded mongoose, and vervet monkeys with babies. We also saw rock Hyrax and a Aardvark hole, hippos and crocs and a Caracal, two Rhinos a mother and its baby and lots of birds also we saw a lesser Kudu ! All I can say is WOW! One of the funniest things that happened, we were watching two Ostrich and I asked Russle our guide how fast Ostrich run? I had no sooner got the words out of my mouth when the male Ostrich ran right past us, as if saying here I will show you just how fast! We just busted out laughing. We also did a hot air balloon ride which was on my bucket list. At first I was the only one that wanted to do it and then they decided to join me which I was happy about! We loved it! Later, after breakfast we saw not one but two crossings and they all made it. There is nothing like witnessing a crossing in person ( the smell and sound of the wildebeest). One of the other things we did do was visit Oldupai Gorge! It was Amazing! The whole trip was amazing from the animals, guide, food and where we stayed and ate! So thank you ADS, Dawn, Russle and my family for the trip of a life time! here are some pictures I wanted to share! Kristin Thomas White,GA 8/05/2017-8/13/2017

African Dream Safaris did everything well---from start to finish. From Michael Wishner's pre-safari advice to our final ****** to the Kilimanjaro airport, all of our expectations were met or exceeded. There are not enough superlatives to extol the virtues of Thompson, our guide, who made the experience beyond memorable. And we won't even try to describe our stay at the unbelievable Ngorongoro Crater Lodge!
Thank you to all who worked so hard to make our first safari the best.

Africa Dream Safaris far exceeded our expectations in every way. From the time our feet hit the ground in Africa, we were treated like Family. Everyone went out of their way to ensure this was the best vacation we have ever had and they were successful. We didn't go on this vacation for the accommodations, the food, the friendly people, the service, etc, even though all of those were Excellent. We went to see the animals in the wild. As we descended out of altitude and turned onto the final approach at the Ndutu Airstrip, the animals started to appear as if we were in some Magical Wonderland. The Giraffes feeding in the Trees, the Zebras, Wildebeest, and Hattebeast and Gazelles feeding along the tree line of the Airstrip. It was like they were all lined up to Welcome us to be Greatest adventure of a lifetime. From that point on, things just kept getting better. Out Guide was perfect. He left no question unanswered, made sure we were put in the best position and light to get the best shots with our camera and took care of our every need. When we arrived, we met our Guide and when we left, we left behind a good Friend. While on this trip, we had the opportunity to talk to many other people on Safari, some of which were other ADS guests, and my wife and I became certain that Africa Dream Safaris was the best, hands down. Thank you for the Vacation of a Lifetime.

Fantastic attention to detail with personalized service

Really enjoyed the trip. Everything went very well. The accommodations were great - we really liked the tented bush camps and found the tents very comfortable and well maintained. The food was very good as was the service. Our Guide, Claude, was excellent and easy to get along with - we became good friends. He always got us to the right places at the right time and never rushed us - great pace. We saw over 40 different types of animals and birds - our only miss was Black Rhino's which were very elusive. In general we found the northern Serengeti more interesting than the southern - more animals and greener terrain this time of year. The visit to the Maasai and Hadzabe tribes was a highpoint of the trip - we were greeted warmly and encouraged to get involved with them including dancing with the Maasai and hunting with the Hadzabe. There were no negatives in the trip, but on a comparative basis the crater was a bit of a disappointment due to being very dry and the fact that we saw the same animals earlier in greater numbers on the Serengeti. Also the roads in the Serengeti and nearby areas were very rough and took some getting used to - but would not stop us from doing it again!
Overall a 1st class experience from the flights there and back, to the hotel and ADS staff in Arusha and to the safari itself. Would recommend it to anyone.
