Erick Nyamohanga

Regional Guide Trainer – Tanzania

Erick was born and raised in the small town of Guitirio, just outside the world-famous Serengeti National Park and close to the shores of Lake Victoria. Ever since he was a young boy, he has been interacting with and admiring wildlife. His family owned crop farms very close to the Serengeti National Park and it was their ongoing challenge to protect their land and harvests from being destroyed by wild animals, namely baboons, bush pigs and a variety of birds.
