Mzee George Atube (pictured below)is one of the longest serving interpretive guides in the Uganda Wildlife Estates. But his comedy and story telling skills make him stand out and have endeared him to many visitors that flock Murchison Falls National Park especially for the game drives in the northern banks.
From the onset when he receives the visitors with a trademark self introduction using countless names capturing his ancestry and birth place, to the attention catching jig-jig stories of the animal behavior, medicinal importance of tree species and the history of Murchison Falls, visitors cannot avoid but pay unwavering attention to his conversation.
Atube has answers for every question which he responds to, with his tongue-in-chick, which will keep visitors reflecting on the quality time with him.
The 60 year old Atube has interacted with wildlife for over 40 years since 1972 when he underwent guide training in Rabong forest for nine months, and has served in Queen Elizabeth, Kidepo Valley and currently Murchison Falls National parks. He is also prolific at sport fishing ad has participated in various competitions. That is Atube for you from United States of Kitgum
