Uganda Reptile Village is managed by Mr. Kazibwe who is a reptile expert. He was born in 1982 in Wakiso District. After studying in Uganda he went to Kenya and Tanzania where he was fully trained in reptile handling and rescue over a period of about 4 years. In 1998 whilst in Tanzania he met Jackson Erickson, a South African reptile warden who was undertaking extensive research on snakes in the country. In June 1999 Erickson offered to take him to Zimbabwe to hone his skills even further.

Here he learned the specialized skills of how to rescue a snake from human attack and how to handle snakebite victims. In May 2000 he came back to Uganda and started to plan for Uganda Reptile Village. Between 2003 and 2008, he rescued more than 623 snakes of 38 different species from imminent death. Mr kazibwe Yasin wrote a snake bite guide book, and made documentaries about reptile.
