I was born in the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam. I enjoy traveling, going on hikes, taking pictures, and making videos. There is nothing that I have done more passionately than venture out to enjoy the beauty that our nation and nature have to offer, having lived and traveled through nearly every major city in my country. Greetings from Tanzania. We say "KARIBU" (welcome) in Swahili.

Humble guy, but so fun. Rashid knows his stuff, like even the dates when monuments and iconic buildings were put up. He is the definition of retro-metro, where he keeps on jumping from History, to modern facts about places, buildings and people, He honestly went out of his way to see that I had a good time. Tried new food coz of him. Dar-es-Salaam remains a great memory in me fundamentally because of Rashid. I love you so much Bro. Keep it up... any time I come to Dar, you are my guy!!!😉

We really liked the tour, but we didn’t know that Sundays don't have as much to see. It was one of his first tours, and I’m sure he will gather more facts over time. But when you asked questions, you got your answer. It was also really flexible; in that way, we even ate with him in the end. 😀
