Wildlife Tourism College of Maasai Mara is operational

The Wildlife Tourism College of Maasai Mara is a flagship project initiated by the Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancies Association (MMWCA) in collaboration with various donors, the community and the government. This premier wildlife college marks a significant milestone as the first of its kind in Narok County, succeeding the former Koiyaki Tour Guide School, which began operations in 2007. 

The Wildlife Tourism College of Maasai Mara is located in Mara Ward in Narok West constituency and was officially commissioned by the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife, Dr. Alfred Mutua accompanied by H.E. Governor Patrick Ole Ntutu. 

During the official commissioning, Governor Ntutu expressed his gratitude to the various donors and development partners who had generously provided  scholarships to the students enrolled at the College and hailed their commitment towards expanding the college further to accommodate even more students. He indicated that the County government will be sponsoring at least 20 students annually through it’s comprehensive county bursary and scholarship program and assured of  the county government’s support towards the construction of additional accommodation spaces to enable the college to expand its capacity from the current 40 students.

Currently recognized as a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institution and duly registered by the Government of Kenya, the college is primed for substantial growth in the days ahead. “I want to encourage all locals to seize this opportunity and further their knowledge and skills in tourism and hospitality,” added Governor Ntutu.
