My name is Darius and my friends call me Dossantos. Am a traveler. Am one of the young people who failed to settle in one place after discovering the world was this this so big and nice.
How long have you been in the tourism business?
I started Tourism business in 2014 after working with with a number of companies and chose to go for where my heart belongs. “Travel”
Is this why you came up with the idea of ‘Travel with Darius TV or this is a separate issue?
I started Travel with Darius TV when I was doing what I love most……..Travel. I have worked with many projects doing filming and photography. I saw what they do. I thought about something that was to link destinations in Africa to someone seated at his lobby and this was the concept. It’s a multi destination show focusing on the whole complex package for travelling.
We show accommodation experience, Night life, Heritage-History and culture of people, Dinning experience, Road trip or air trips tips, Health Travel, Travel fitness, Travel beauty and much more in form of tips, live coverage and blog. We go there so we tell stories we know
When was ‘Travel with Darius TV’ introduced or let’s say launched, and what’s its main aim?
It was introduced officially in may 2017 and went on the screen/live in August and our main aim was and still is Tourism promotion.
Is the show contributing towards tourism sector where it operates from?
So much. We are showing attractions at no cost. We work with Tourism boards to show what people can do, see, where they can eat, sleep and all experiences at no cost. Some have come back to me to say thank you I didn’t know where to go.
We film any country and content runs in that particular country. It doesn’t stop us from airing that content in another country but priority is citizens of that country. We have finished filming Rwanda and now that content is airing on TV1 Rwanda.
So we’ve gotten to know that, your show gives a chance to those that want to experience an adventurous life, how many people have traveled through this initiative?
Well you are right, we give you a chance to explore with us. We can’t recall the number but many and that’s free of charge 100% full board.

Charming and cooperative. We worked together, adventured together, smiled together and that’s all we do while Travelling. She is more than that. (CHECK OUT OUR INTERVIEW WITH AMIA PAMELA)

How long have you been traveling? Could mention some of your most memorable moments?
Its been long. I have managed to Travel 4 continents since 1996 when I was a young boy. And you will be shocked by this answer on my memorable moment. The best moment is when I took my golden trip to Western Uganda alone. On my own budget. From Kabale to Rwenzori area. On my own budget I repeat. Life has never been the same. (Laughs !!! for like a minute or so)
You’ve mentioned before that tourism changed your mind to an extent that you wanted to study a tourism course at university and also invest in tourism at a later stage, did any of this happen?
Hell no. The university denied me a Tourism course and I gave me business admin. Investing in Tourism I did. I started KINGS TRAVEL CENTER Rwanda and Uganda. I have been a guide more than the owner in that company. Am always out showing people what they like to see, eat sleep and etc. I spend 90% of my time in hotels and the wild or the road.
