Dashir Lodge and Safaris is run by Darryl and Shirley – As they describe it on their website:
We have fun saying, “We sold everything but our 3 kids and moved to Africa.” It has been an incredible adventure! We are thrilled to share the wonder and beauty that Tanzania has to offer: the wildlife, the people, the mountains, the beaches, and so much more.
When you visit Dashir, you become part of our family and our home. Our staff and community will touch your life with their extraordinary warm hospitality and delightful cheerfulness – we love to laugh! 🙂
Darryl & Shirley and our Dashir Family
We have nothing but good things to say about the lodge. Darryl and Shirley make you feel like you are visiting family, and the staff is so friendly they feel like family too. The accommodations are first rate, the food is even better, and the whole trip was the experience of a lifetime.
Darryl organized our entire trip, from the moment we got off the plane in Kilimanjaro International Airport, until the time we got back on the plane in Zanzibar. All we had to do is find flights over there and tell him when we were arriving and departing, and he arranged the rest. Someone picked us up at the airport (Thank you, Simon!); Darryl arranged our day trips, our Safari out to the national Parks, our accommodations, our flight to Zanzibar and hotel and transport out there too. Basically, all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride(s). Thank you Darryl.
And we can’t forget Shirley’s amazing cooking, her helpful guidance on where to go when we went on a souvenir shopping trip into town, and much else.
