| Peter, if you want me to run your little camping trip, there are two conditions: firstly, I'm in charge, and when I'm not around, Dieter is. All you need to do is sign the checks, tell us we're doing a good job, and open your case of Scotch when we have a good day. Second condition: my fee? You can keep it. All I want in exchange for my services is the right to hunt one of the tyrannosaurs. A male, a buck only. How and why are my business. Now if you don't like either of those two conditions, you're on your own. So go ahead, set up base camp right here, or in a swamp, or in the middle of a Rex nest for all I care. But I've been on too many safaris with rich dentists to listen to any more suicidal ideas, OK?|

InGen Database Entry
Roland Tembo was a well-known big game hunter who operated from Mombasa in Kenya. Peter Ludlow hired him to lead a team of hunters tasked with retrieving dinosaurs from Isla Sorna to be exhibited in a new facility in San Diego. Tembo was convinced by his friend Ajay Sidhu to join the expedition. For his fee, he demanded to be allowed to hunt one of the adult Tyrannosaurs .
Initially the operation went well, with a variety of dinosaurs captured. Tembo's knowledge of dinosaurs seemed limited as he couldn't pronounce some of the names, but he ran the team efficiently. Their success was short-lived as the dinosaurs were let loose by Nick Van Owen and Dr. Sarah Harding.
His plan to hunt a T. rex was based upon capturing the infant and using it as bait to lure its parents into a killing zone. The infant was rescued by Van Owen who also stole the bullets from Roland's gun. When Roland encountered the T. rex, he discovered his lack of ammunition and had to tranquillize the dinosaur.
The news of Sidhu's death grieved him and he declined another job offer from Peter Ludlow, stating that he no longer wanted to spend time in the company of death.
