OVERVIEW

In this summer fundamentals course, the world-famous national parks and reserves of Kenya are your classrooms. Through safari drives, field excursions, and an emphasis on the human role, study wildlife found nowhere else on the planet. Discuss different approaches to wildlife management and conservation, and learn about traditional knowledge and culture from Maasai and other community groups.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT:
  • Embark on a multi-day expedition to Amboseli National Park, based in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and observe wildlife behavior, practice species ID, and collect ecological data.
  • Learn about both the private and community wildlife sanctuaries evolving in Amboseli and Maasai Mara lands, as well as the resource conservation critical to the wildlife that live there.

The Center lies in the heart of Kenya’s Rift Valley, nestled between three world-famous national parks. The snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro towers over miles of savanna, replete with a diversity of wildlife. Students and staff live on a sprawling, grassy campus made up of traditional thatched bandas (cabins) and a central chumba (main building), just down the road from the small town of Kimana.
