Born in 1954 in Siebengewald in the Netherlands but ended up in a love affair with Africa especially Uganda with the kind and lovable people. For over 30 years I have traveled around Uganda more than most Ugandans but also in Congo, Angola, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Africa and many places in west Africa. All started for me as a Hobby but because of my love for animals it became my profession. A Hobbyist with a special love for reptiles and smaller mammals since age of 7 in Netherlands. I am an animal expert and environmentalists in general and been in Uganda’s conservation since 20 years, I think I know Uganda like my Name. Have spent most of the time researching on snake’s chameleon, birds, and insects in Uganda but never left out the mammals. The diversity of animals made me love Uganda even more and i have experience which I want to share with many people as possible.
Born in 1984 and raised near Virunga Volcanoes and endemic mountain Gorillas South western Uganda Kisoro district. I followed all rituals of Bafumbira tribe as my fore fathers did. I fell in love with nature since childhood. Call me a village boy who underwent all modules of village life. A boy who did not require a watch to wake up early for school but rather wait for a call from a grey crowned crane bird. A child who went outside in dark to listen to the crickets sing. A boy who gathered with his family outside in the night for dinner under the moon. A village boy who riddled with elders and trimmed about story telling, folklore at the fire place. A young child who chewed an Aloevera leaf in case of malaria sickness Am a local guide with African touch who loves creating fond memories for his guests as his friends not tourist.
