After working as a teacher for a few years, Habibu, a member of Uganda’s Munyankole tribe, decided to pursue his love of wildlife and completed the necessary training to become a Uganda Wildlife Authority guide. As a ranger and interpretive guide, he has deep knowledge of Uganda’s national parks, including Kibale Forest, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, and Queen Elizabeth National Park, where he was appointed the head UWA guide. He loved working in this park because in addition to managing the wildlife, he was also able to educate his local community in co-existing with the neighboring wildlife (the Bushenyi district, where he was born, is on the boundary of Queen Elizabeth National Park). Habibu has an ever-ready smile and loves sharing his country with our safari guests, from its woodlands and forests to the open savanna.
Habibu was an absolutely excellent guide! He has a deep understanding of the cultures and customs of the various people. His knowledge of the birds and animals was nothing short of amazing.
