Luxury Safari Magazine interviews Victor Nyakiriga
Victor Nyakiriga is one of the directors and co-founders of Topguides Bush Camp which offers a distinctive take on safari’s classic essence, breathing fresh simplicity and elegance into the timelessness of the wild.
Here we find out what makes Victor tick:
What is the biggest aspiration/goal you would like to reach?
Leaving a legacy as one of the top conservationists in this world.
What is your favorite place to be and why?
Wilderness. It’s like therapy for me. But I also love big cities like New York as I get to challenge myself with the fast-moving world and technology.
What is the best part of being the co-founder of Topguides Bush Camps?
Using all the great knowledge that I acquired being a guide before we started the company that helps me to implement high level of service standards for our guests.
How many countries have you visited, and which is the one you liked most?
About 15 countries. I really enjoyed Namibia and Peru. But of course, Tanzania is always going to be my favorite
What was the vision behind your company?
As a visionary leader, I always wished to give people the power to be free to connect with nature and to share all the unique experiences to make the world more open and connected.
Where do you want to take the company in the future?
I would like to keep it small and boutique while focusing on conservation. This way we can provide both the best experiences for our guests and at the same time focus on working with conservation companies to protect our beautiful environment
What is the best sighting you’ve ever had in the bush?
This one is tough as I have seen so many interesting sights, so it’s hard to just have one best sight. But I must say that I was amazed to see a leopard killing a cheetah, taking it up in the tree, and eating it.
What is your strongest passion?
Guiding and conservation. Guiding feels like a very natural part of me.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
My beautiful family. Also being able to run my own camps.
Is there anything else you would like to add or want people to know?
Yes. That I came from nothing, so anything is possible. Never stop dreaming.
