Sulaiman “Sula” Iga spent his early years growing up in Queen Elizabeth National Park, where both his parents worked for the Uganda Wildlife Authority. It came as no surprise when Sula decided to follow in his parents footsteps to become a wildlife expert, earning a diploma in tourism and safari tours before working for a research organization studying the flora and fauna of Queen Elizabeth National Park. He has been a guide for the past six years.
An avid birder, Sula is very passionate and knowledgeable about the many bird species found in Uganda. In his spare time, Sula loves to read and watch wildlife documentaries, comparing the wildlife of Uganda with other countries. He is married and has two children.
“Sula is an incredible man [with an] unfailing concern for our safety and comfort, and a great knowledge of his country’s geography, history, culture and of course wildlife. He found lions for us on both our game drives in Ishasha when no trackers had found any for several days!”

“Sula was fabulous. He is extremely knowledgeable, very courteous, and kept us well-informed of the upcoming itinerary throughout the trip. He was a great driver and guide. He was very sincere about wildlife conservation and focused on making sure we had a great experience. One of the added pleasures of the trip was spending time with Sula and getting to know him.”
