Arrival and orien­ta­tion in East Africa

You will arrive in Nairobi one day before the course begins. Your first night will be spent in a hostel in the city. The following day you will be picked up from the hostel and taken to your camp, where you will get to know the other course members. You will be brought back to Nairobi at the end of the course. After that, you are free to continue travels or return home.


Activ­i­ties during the Safari Guide course in Africa

Naturally, the focus of the Kenya Safari Guide course is on practical matters, but theoretical aspects are not neglected. The experienced instructors, who have years of training, will teach you about animal behaviour and the geological, ecological and meteorological aspects of the local environment. How to plan a safari is an integral part of the course. The knowledge acquired, how to read tracks and hoofprints, can be put directly into practice on lengthy walks and excursions in a jeep. Day in, and day out you will encounter lions, elephants, birds and many other creatures living in the wild, enabling you to experience Africa’s unique beauty at close quarters.


Accom­mo­da­tion in Kenya

You and the other course participants will live together in the Mara training centre, where you are accommodated in shared rooms and have access to shared bathrooms. You are provided with three to four daily meals. The camp's electricity comes from generators, because it has no connection to the power grid. It also has solar lamps and satellite telephones, as mobile reception is generally quite poor.


Leisure time during your Safari Guide course in Kenya

You will have the occasional afternoon free over the course of the 28 days. You can spend this time however you like. You could use it to revise or to do something with the other participants. The common area is good for playing cards together or swapping stories about the day.

    1. Camp Mara

    Camp Mara is located on the edge of the Mara River in western Kenya. It evolved from informal community meetings held under an acacia tree in the Enonkishu Sanctuary in the Masai Mara. Surrounded by small Masai communities and excellent wildlife areas, it offers students an ideal base from which to get to know both the impressive nature and the inhabitants of the Masai Mara. Here, in the east of the African continent, you will spend an educational time in harmony with nature and gain an insight into the coexistence as well as into the human-wildlife conflict between pastoralists and farmers and the native wild animals.
