For the past 15 years, I have been guiding trips throughout Uganda, Congo and Rwanda and i have a phenomenal knowledge of East Africa's wildlife and a keen ability for sharing it. Originally from Uganda, I grew up on the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where my natural affinity for wildlife began at an early age. I have a contagious passion for wildlife viewing and eagle-like vision (spotting wildlife well past sunset) and i like birding a lot. Besides my natural history expertise, I also provide cultural insights into my home country, i know my Ugandan wines and cuisine, and i am a great story teller. When not on safari, i reside in Kireka with my family. As a specialist for custom-made trips, I have a motivated and dedicated team of Ugandans and Rwandans experts who share their passion for Uganda and Rwanda respectively as travel destinations and who will support you in organizing your individual trip to Uganda and Rwanda. Always looking forward to your requests!
