Japhet Robert Mwenura was born in Musoma, a stone’s throw from the Serengeti ecosystem. Here, he attended primary school and was awarded his certificate of graduation. Japhet then went on to study at Issenye secondary school in 2002 and was awarded a secondary school certificate in 2004.

In June 2005 he joined the Grumeti Reserves team as the pool supervisor at Singita Sasakwa Lodge; later in 2012 he moved into the Guiding Department as a Duty Guide. Over the next few years Japhet trained hard and with a keen eye and his lovely respectful nature he achieved a junior guide position in 2017.

During Japhet’s time in secondary school he experienced many visitors who expressed such enthusiasm and interest in the natural world – this fuelled Japhet’s desire to go on to become a Field Guide.

Japhet’s most memorable sighting was when he observed a Cheetah feeding on a Carcass alongside a Black Backed Jackal.
