This program is split evenly between Brackenhurst, an eco-campus in Limuru, Kenya, and the Mara Naboisho Conservancy in the infamous Masai Mara ecosystem. It aims to provide students with an understanding of the complex relationships between Kenya’s indigenous communities, land, water and wildlife.
It is a single course program, so all students will take 1 course.
There’s an optional coastal marine module in 2019. This five-day module will run directly after the last portion of the Ecology course at an additional cost, exposing students to Kenya’s marine ecosystem. Students will be able to obtain a basic PADI certification, as well as visit remarkable coastal sites such as the Arabu-ko Sokoke Forest, the Gedi Ruins, and The Watamu Turtle Watch rehabilitation center.
