About Us

Company History

In 2001 David and Marilyn DeVooght, Kanab  4×4 enthusiasts, established Dreamland Safari Tours in response to an obvious demand for scenic tours in the Kanab Area.  The utah safari tours were a great side venture for the retired couple and provided a way for curious travelers to go places off the beaten track, places they otherwise would never be able to see. In addition to launching the business and running desert safaris, they were busy securing the future for 4×4 recreation in the area with local activism. Through their leadership in the Canyon Country 4×4 club, which continues to present day, they formally established new trail systems, rebuilt old movie sets, and worked with the BLM to ensure open access for all. Dreamland owes its existence to Dave and Marilyn. Without their passion and perseverance Dreamland Safari Tours would have never gotten off the ground.

Current Ownership

In 2011 Dreamland was purchased by William James with the vision of expanding into multi-day expeditions, developing a better website and visibility, and helping develop Kanab as a world-class outdoor destination.  In its seventh season under new management, the business continues to grow and receive customer accolades. Will is the chief executive, fleet manager, and sole multi-day guide while Meghann handles the bookings and facilities. Because of the tireless work of Meghann and Will, Dreamland has become the largest and most comprehensive tour company in the Kanab Area. Dreamland is currently the #2 tour operator in Kanab on Trip Advisor with more reviews than any other company. During Fall 2015, Dreamland built a new professional facility a few miles east of Kanab, which has helped them to operate more efficiently and serve more guests. On October 24th, 2015 Will and Meghann committed their lives to each other through marriage. On August 11, 2018 the newest guide-to-be joined the Dreamland Family. Henry Kent James was born.
