• Wildlife Warrior Program

Through the Wildlife Warrior Scholarship, I can be educated, conserve wildlife and fulfil my dream of becoming a Senior Warden.

– Doreen, 14

The ultimate goal of the Wildlife Warrior Program is to take its top conservation scholars to post-graduate level. Every day, the program is helping to develop a generation of Kenyan conservationists. These youngsters, like Doreen, were born and bred in key wildlife areas. It is their ambition to lead the nation forward with passion, so more people can understand and appreciate of the importance of wildlife conservation and tourism.

Communities are far more likely to protect wildlife if they can benefit directly from tourism. Based on this principle, we have been committed to providing tangible benefits to communities for over 30 years.

The Wildlife Warrior Program combines these efforts with our mission to educate the next generation of conservationists in Kenya. Evidence shows that programs like this positively impact young people, their communities and ecology. Since its launch in 2014, the Wildlife Warrior Program has already worked with over 1,600 children living in prominent wildlife areas.

Each school term, local conservationists and camp guides deliver inspirational talks to our Wildlife Warriors. This provides them with content for poetry, trivia and poster competitions, foster their growing interest and passion for conservation, as well as their competitive spirit! Prize winners are then rewarded with guided game drives and tours of our properties in Kenya.

Every year, the Wildlife Warrior Program provides secondary school scholarships to outstanding young conservationists. These youngsters are brought together for a three-day interactive retreat to broaden their awareness of the challenges and successes of conservation on a national level.
