Africa Dream Safaris is a Tanzania tour operator specializing in african safari vacation packages with an emphasis on maximizing wildlife encounters through strategically designed itineraries and providing an unsurpassed level of service via personalized programs and expert guides.
We are very committed to conservation and the support of local communities through principles of empowerment. In fact, we received the 2008 Tanzania Tour Operator Conservation Award. This prestigious award was presented to us by the Tanzanian Minister of Tourism and the Tanzania Tourist Board at an international congress in May 2008. We were honored with this award specifically because of our work with the Serengeti Lion Project. Additionally, our african safari tours contribute $25 per person to the FAME project, Foundation for African Medicine and Education, in Karatu under the direction of Dr. Frank Artress. We have also supported a number of school and orphanages (Children for Children's Future, Njiapanda Primary School and the Shalom Orphanage as examples) through community work and donations of cash and product.
We hire only experienced and certified driver guides and the standard for our safaris is to leave by 6.00 AM for the best game driving experience. Some of our driver guides are former park rangers and have in depth knowledge of not only wildlife, but the interplay within the entire Eco-system. We frequently arrange for short field talks nightly by our driver guides (topics include the dynamics of the migration; Elephants as a Key Stone Species; Grasses of the Serengeti; The Geology of the Great Rift Valley; Challenges facing Predators, to name a few). We also arrange, upon request, a field talk with various researchers we have developed relationships with and make a contribution to the research project in exchange for the talk. For more information, iisit bios for our safari tour guides.
We offer over 250 african safaris to Tanzania and each is strategically designed on a monthly basis to take advantage of seasonal wildlife concentrations. Each of the over 250 safaris is supported by a 10+ page document with comprehensive information on Tanzania Lodges, wildlife viewing and Tanzania National Parks.
We believe that by keeping each tanzania safari private, our clients are better able to experience the true meaning of the word adventure and the true essence of an African Safari. A place as wild and spectacular as the Serengeti National Park (for example) is sometimes best absorbed in serene solitude with just yourself and somebody you feel comfortable with. We feel that it would be a great injustice to deal with political niceties, group dynamics, and catering to someone else's schedule while surrounded by one of the most untamed and prolific wilderness areas left on the planet.
Each client is assigned a personal safari consultant, available to the client 7 days a week to answer any questions. The personal safari consultant works with the client to develop the most optimal safari itinerary that best suits the client’s specific requirements, animal interests, lodging preferences and month of travel. The safari consultant also handles all travel arrangements in addition to the safari including internal airfare, transfers, meet and greet services, travel insurance and post safari extensions as well as providing comprehensive pre departure planning including packing, health, reading and photography recommendations.
