Welcome to the Jungle...Golden Dreams Safari (review) -Tanzania, Africa

Africa is a massive continent. Its’ actually the world’s second largest continent by both land area and population. It’s like huge…so when my friend mentioned a safari in Africa…I was like nah hard pass.

Let me be clear I am city girl through and through so I was NOT on board. I mean I did not want to spend my vacation sitting in a car looking at animals. I could go to the zoo. And sleep outside in a camp? Tented lodge?!?

Then she mentioned Zanzibar (and I did some googling) and soon I was on board.


It was the best experience of my life. One that I would easily do again. The whole experience was top notch. Victor (our guide and owner of GOLDEN DREAMS SAFARI) has been eating all the carrots as his eyes are amazing. He could see movement from what felt like hundreds of meters away. The call him Big Five and with him we saw the Big 5!
The Jeep was comfy and great for taking pics. The packed lunches were ok but camp sites were great, comfy, running water and a bathroom and very glam...we weren’t camping we were glamping and it was glorious.
Love love loved our time with Golden Dream Safaris and the owner/operator Victor.

This was a private tour which cost us less if we would have booked with a group. An amazing experience and my advice to anyone looking to book a safari, read reviews, check out different sites and always try and deal directly with the locals.

remember this is a slide show and sometimes needs to be toggled to get to the next pic.
