Mugashe was born in Bukoba and his deep knowledge about this local environment (flora and fauna) is gained from over 40 years guiding across the Lake Zone. He honed his skills as a young man in the world renouned Lake Manyara National Park - being the chosen tour guide to introduce the wildlife of the area to a then young american senator who later became the President of the United States, Barrick Obama!
A natural teacher, Mugashe moved on to work in the world famous Serengeti National Park where he translated knowledge about the park to both the local community (swahili) and international organisations (e.g. World Vision, German) helping develop their understanding and appreciation of this sanctury. He returned to his home town of Bukoba in later years, and today works as a school teacher spending any free time he has birding on the shore of the lake. We are honoured to have him to call upon for our birding experiences!
