Koyaki Guiding School trains local Masai in the skills of conservation and wildlife management, teaching them how to benefit from tourism opportunities. It also teaches local people why conservation is beneficial to the community as well as showing them how to protect wildlife and its habitat and develop harmony between wildlife and agriculture. Our camping and conservancy fees, along with direct donations to the school, have generated an income for the community. We often host donors and lecturers at Ol Seki for no charge and we’ve contributed to a botanical garden at the school, planted with succulents (water-storing plants). We also support the school by offering work experience to students during their holidays and our guides give them additional advice and practical training as part of their attachment at Ol Seki. The first female graduate of Koyaki Guiding School, Betty Maitai, now works in our team of wildlife guides.
