The organization skills that Darryl has are amazing. He had everything little detail arranged for us. We were fortunate to get Jeremiah as our driver/guide on our safari. The week we were there, Dashir had...

Our stay at DASHIR was simply unforgettable: warm family welcome and atmosphere, stellar accomodation, grand food, amazing staff, safari and climbing guides. Dashir is MORE than a vacation destination!

Darryl and Shirley have put their hearts and souls into Dashir. This is obvious from the moment you arrive. The level of service is outstanding with a genuine personal touch. Plus the food is absolutely fantastic! No wonder they have so many repeat visitors. Dashir and the whole team that runs it are truly exceptional.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Dashir Lodge & Safaris is located just a short 20 min. drive from Arusha town in a quiet rural community with long grasses and acacia trees - very Serengeti-like! Feel free to learn more here and on our website, and then drop us an email to start the conversation about your dream safari adventure to Africa. Can't wait to hear from you!
