OVERVIEW

Spend your winter break exploring the rich biodiversity and stunning landscapes of Kenya where world-famous national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and protected areas are your classroom. Explore the complexity of sustainable wildlife conservation including learning how the Maasai and other communities interact with wildlife and nature. Conduct animal behavior observations on safari drives where you’ll see a range of iconic African species.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT:
  • Embark on multi-day camping expeditions to both Amboseli National Park and Chyulu Hills and Tsavo West, attend field lectures, and hone your wildlife observation skills on species such as elephants, lions, hippos, and other wildlife.

SFS students live and study at the Center for Water and Wildlife Studies. The Center lies in the heart of Kenya’s Rift Valley, between three world-famous national parks. The snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro towers over miles of savanna, replete with a diversity of wildlife. Our sprawling, grassy campus includes traditional thatched bandas (cabins) and a central chumba (main building), just down the road from the small town of Kimana.
