George Gilman Rushby (1900 in England – 1968 in Africa), was an elephant hunter, poacher, prospector, farmer, forestry officer, and game warden. He was responsible for the hunting down of The Man-eaters of Njombe - a pride of lions that had killed and devoured over 1500 people reputedly under the influence of a witchdoctor named Matamula Mangera. George Rushby was the subject of the BBC Documentary “The Man-eating Lions of Njombe.” As the Senior Game Ranger of Tanganyika, George Rushby first proposed the Ruaha National Park in 1949. He also helped ensure the park was gazetted in 1951.
