By the time he entered high school, Julius Mwangoma already knew that he wanted to be a safari guide. But his dad wanted him to try being a mechanic first, so he pursued training in that area and worked for five years as a workshop foreman overseeing 35 staff. He started attending classes at night to begin training in tourism. He became certified as a driver guide at Utalii College in Nairobi, Kenya, and has been leading safaris for the past 17 years. He speaks English and Swahili and is passionate about sharing his love for Kenya, its wildlife and its people.
