Featured Guide: Edward Kabagyo

Edward was born in the Hoima District in Western Uganda and is of the Munyoro tribe. He is happily married with three children.

Since his childhood Edward has had a keen interest in the fauna of Uganda. For the last 15 years, Edward has been involved in wildlife and conservation within Uganda. Edward started his career by working with young, orphaned or injured animals, but his speciality now is in mammals and reptiles. Over the numerous years of working in direct contact with a huge vari-ety of animal species, Edward has gathered an outstanding amount of knowledge on animal behaviour.

During game drives, Edward loves to inform you of the social structure of the variety of animal groups, their reproductive behaviour, their hunting strategies and techniques as well as numer-ous other interesting animal facts.

“Edward was FANTASTIC. We absolutely loved him. In addition to being a consummate professional he was incredibly attentive, caring and protective. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate the degree to which we always felt safe and secure when we were with him. He could not have treated us better and we always felt as though he was committed to going the extra mile in making sure we had the best trip possible. I cannot speak highly enough of him.”

“… Another first rate/class piece of this for our family was our guide Edward Kabagyo. WHAT AN OUTSTANDING HUMAN BEING!!! After a couple days on the road, I really felt Edward took his job extremely seriously and had our best interest … Edward’s care for us was second to none. He always made sure we had what we needed. His patience was always present. His personality is calm, firm, committed, light hearted, funny, real, and friendly.”
