From the minute I expressed interest in the Safari Dawn Anderson was in constant contact to give information or answer questions that I had. The detailed book and additional emails about what to pack was helpful. The personnel that met us at the airport all the way to the hotel staff and especially the safari quide/driver went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed each and every day.

Everything about our experience w ADS was first class. We especially appreciated the help that Dawn Anderson gave us throughout the planning stages. She answered all of my many questions in a very friendly and professional way. She became a
friend even though we have not met.
Patrick, our guide was outstanding and did everything he could to ensure our comfort, safety and fun!

We’ve always wanted to go on a safari in Africa, but we were intimidated by the amount of touring companies available. We did our research for months, including speaking with references from various companies and we ultimately decided to choose African Dream Safaris.
Our experience was pleasant from the start. Dawn was a wonderful liaison – friendly, nice, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. Still, did we make the right choice? Well let me tell you, everyone we met, starting from our arrival at the airport, had the exact qualities of Dawn! We could not believe how friendly, helpful, and caring the staff were.
Then we met our guide, Russell, the one we’d be spending most of our time with. If I had to use one word: amazing. We were extremely happy with Russell. He was always so attentive to our family’s needs, tailoring each day’s trip to maximize our enjoyment of what the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater had to offer.
Not only did he frequently spot all kinds of wildlife from afar, but he made sure the entire family could view the animals without disturbing or threatening them. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the best angle and lighting for photographs and video. His deep respect for nature and wildlife was exemplary.
Russell and the entire staff of African Dream Safaris exceeded our expectations and were responsible for a fantastic vacation that we will never forget. African Dream Safaris truly made our wishes come true.

Emmanuel knew where the animals were and took us there. He was attentive to our needs. We spent three hours tracking down a rhinoceros . Dawn in the headquarters did a great job of planning the trip for us. The lodges were great. I highly recommend ADS.

We could not have possibly experience a better Safari, profesionalism all the way thru from arrival at the airport to return. We highly recommend Africa Dream Safaris for anyone considering a Serengeti adventure.

Africa Dream Safaris provided us with a first class trip start to finish. It was without a doubt the most incredible trip we've ever taken. Everything was taken care of for us, our guide was amazing, and we could just kick back and fully absorb the scenery and wildlife around us.
I highly recommend Africa Dream Safaris without any reservations. We will be going back to the Serengeti and we will use them again.

Wow….just wow. Words cannot begin to describe the experience we had on our safari, and pictures cannot capture the spectacular sights we saw. Although our expectations for the adventure were very high going into the trip, the reality greatly exceeded those lofty expectations.
Of course, we went to see the wildlife, but we were blown away by the number and variety of animals that we experienced. From the time we arrived until the time we left, it seemed that we were surrounded by animals. We were fortunate to see the Big 5 – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhinoceros (on the last day in the Ngorongoro Crater) - and they were certainly a highlight of the trip, but they weren’t the only highlights…not even close.
The wildebeest were absolutely incredible. The sheer numbers were impressive, but we also had the pleasure to see three river crossings, which were an absolutely amazing experience. Zebras were another constant companion throughout our trip. The gangly elegance of the giraffes was amazing. The myriad varieties of gazelle and antelope were beautiful. Hippos, crocs, monkeys, baboons, warthog, hyrax, klipspringer, jackal, hyena, and so many other fascinating creatures added surprising color to our trip.
Birds were an unexpected surprise throughout the trip. The variety of colorful birds – large and small – was impressive. Vultures, eagles, buzzards, kites, and owls were fun additions to our list of sightings. And, one of the highlights of our trip was being charged (more funny than scary) by a large male ostrich protecting a female ostrich and a brood of chicks.
The cats were an awesome part of the experience. We saw lions literally every day. The adults were impressive, and we got to experience the excitement of a few hunts, but the number of cubs we saw was an unexpected surprise. Cheetahs were sleek, elegant, beautiful creatures. But, our favorite cat was the leopard. Those powerful, sleek creatures were beautiful beyond belief.
The accommodations throughout the trip were fantastic. We stayed in two tented lodges – Lemala Kuria Hills and Buffalo Luxury Camp – but don’t be fooled by the “tent” term. The rooms are finely appointed and very comfortable – the true definition of glamping. The Four Seasons Serengeti is a five star resort in the middle of the Serengeti with an incredible infinity pool overlooking a watering hole that attracts wildlife of all kinds. The Crater Lodge was a funky, fun lodge with an incredible view of the Ngogongoro Crater. And, the Manor at Ngorongoro – overlooking a beautiful coffee plantation – was a fine, elegant end to our safari.
We cannot thank our guide – Michael – enough. He was a wealth of knowledge, an incredible animal spotter, and a fun companion throughout the trip. We will never forget him, and we cannot thank him (asante sana!) enough.
