Serengeti. Kilimanjaro. Zanzibar. Culture.
Feel at home in Africa
Secure. Professional. Hassle-free.
“Dashir” comes from our names, Darryl and Shirley. Africa was in the prenups and is in our blood. We sold everything but our three kids and moved to Africa! It has been an incredible adventure. We are thrilled to share the wonder and beauty of Tanzania. Enjoy the amazing wildlife and scenery away from Dashir: on safari, climbing Kilimanjaro, and in Zanzibar. Fall in love with the friendly hearts of the people – polé polé, slowly slowly, at the lodge and on our signature walking excursions.
“Feel at home” is more than just a tagline.
One guest recently commented, “I’m always a bit skeptical of any business that portrays itself as a “family.” This is a rare situation where there really is no better word to describe the staff at Dashir. Everyone we met was wonderfully kind, and we were very quickly made to feel completely at home.” Check out many like reviews on TripAdvisor, where we have been #1 out of 370+ specialty lodges for the past five years.
Customized Adventures Tailored by “The Plan”
The planning and execution of your adventure is personal and unique. Darryl – aka “The Plan” – will work with you to create a detailed itinerary for your time in Tanzania. No middle person/agent makes for an unbeatable value! A hassle-free experience is our goal, with daily briefings and close attention to every detail; even your tips are looked after! Dashir safaris are private, where you have the flexibility and independence of movement with a dedicated professional driver-guide and vehicle. You make your group of 2 to 12 people (one or two safari jeeps) and then create your customized safari itinerary with Darryl.
Get “The Party” Started!
Shirley – aka “The Party” – and our Dashir team will host you and pamper you in many ways. Dashir Lodge, with our signature cultural-scenic walking excursions, is your “home base” before and after the Game Safari (and Kilimanjaro Climb if desired), with an optional Zanzibar Beach relaxing finale.
