"My name is Asha Abdul and I was born in Arusha, Tanzania. I graduated at Tumaini university, Iringa University College with Bachelor of Art in Community Development in October 2013.
Besides attending classes in the University, I took courses in Tourism and Hospitality, French and Computer studies at Arusha International College of Tourism. I am hard working and very determined. I enjoy working with other people, keeping myself busy and putting extra effort in my tasks. I am reliable and strive to always keep a positive attitude!
There came a point in my life where I wanted to investigate and work in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. Tourism is
an industry that enables me to learn and interact with people from a wide varietyof cultures and lifestyles around the world. I have always loved traveling, meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. I also wanted to learn more about why destinations choose to promote themselves the way they do, and now I feel so proud when my dreams have come true; I can share the experience and describe the real beauty of my country to people around the world!
In tourism we believe that “Experience is a renewable resource” if we do it right, we can provide experiences to guests, and each one will perceive that experience in a different and personal way—day after day, and year after year, on the same piece of ground.”
Meet the staff
As a native Tanzanian, I've always had passion for tourism. I am fascinated by foreign countries and their cultures; my whole life, education, traveling and jobs have all related to tourism and I have been involved in almost every aspect of the industry. This lifetime experience is also crucial to why Zuri Tours and Safaris has been doing so great in the business.
I love to get in touch with new people and unknown cultures because that’s the only way to really broaden one’s mind; by sharing experiences and motives. Having been to different places in Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar Island has broadened my perspective of our amazing country and made me understand the importance of travel nowadays, and thus the importance of tourism to satisfy this longing for exploring the world.
Excellent customer service and high product quality are very important in the travel business: "This is what we promise our valuable Clients every single day!” We have well trained employees; they know how to handle a request on a satisfactory level.

"I've been working in the wildlife kitchen for many years. I've been cooking since I was a kid and I've always loved food.
I believe cooking is not a profession; it is a Passion. Being a Chef is like being in love, all very important... But this passion we give all our time, love and dedication.
I love cooking to people something they enjoy. Something they "wow" at. To me, the joy of cooking and the smiles on happy faces of our esteemed clients when they liked my food made it all worthwhile. I feel happiest when making people happy.
And Zuri Tours and Safaris is leading by an example."
"To Travel is to live''
Hello, I graduated at Moshi Co-operative University with a Master Degree of Arts in Co-operative and Community Development.
This perfectly describes my thoughts regarding wanderlust. I just love to travel as it is one of those few things, which makes me realize that life is so beautiful and there is so much to admire to be with Zuri Tours. It gives me a chance to explore new places, witness different cultures, and traditions; a chance to meet people who are born in a different world than me and have different mentality; to try different cuisines.
Zuri tours offer a great way to get out of the worldly tensions for a while and relax. Not only does it increases our knowledge but also widens our perspective. Each travel experience teaches us something and helps us in adapting changes thus developing a natural ability of overcoming problems.
Welcome to Zuri Tours, ''Nothing makes Us happy than a satisfied client"
I think it is in people's blood to be interested in something new and therefore to travel. I really believe that helping people, providing them with good customer service and making them feel better in general helps you on all levels: first it will make you happier and second it will bring business and strong reputation to you. That's my philosophy.
