Denis Erabu, born in eastern Uganda, is of the Kumam tribe. He grew up in a rural village, where his father is a local chief. After completing secondary school, Denis moved to Kampala and became an escort driver for an NGO that delivered relief supplies to Southern Sudan. Four years later, he decided to make a career change and entered the tourism industry, pursuing his childhood interest in wildlife. Through a combination of on-the-job and formal training courses in Uganda with the Queen Elizabeth Bird Observatory and BirdLife International, Denis has gained extensive knowledge as a safari guide with a speciality in birding. He has been a professional driver-guide since 1995 and is a member of the Uganda Birdwatching Society. When not guiding, Denis loves to read and watch wildlife documentaries. He lives in Kampala with his wife and four children.
