Victor Nyakiriga

Victor Nyakiriga grew up just outside the Serengeti. As a child, his grandfather would take him out in the bush, immersing him in the world of wildlife and guiding.

This sparked an early passion for the natural world, and he went on to graduate at the top of his class at Wildlife College, in Arusha. From there, he was hired by one of the most prestigious safari camps in the country, and quickly became a trainer for other guides. It wasn’t long before he became a sought after guide amongst tourists and well-known photographers for National Geographic, among others.

Over a decade later, with his extensive experience and huge smile, he runs the guiding company, Topguides Safaris and along with his wife, are partnered with East Africa Safari Ventures in our Tanzania seasonal property in the Serengeti,  Osero Camp.
