As with most African countries that receive tourists, Kenya is heavily focused on sustainability; it’s at the core of the country’s survival. The goal for the Kenyan tourism industry is to be low impact-, community- and conservation-orientated, and to have a positive influence on the people who visit as well as the country’s resources. Kenya supports conservation, sustainability, and community development through a number of projects that strive to conserve wildlife, sustain resources, and employ local communities.

The Sustainable Kenya elective module—the third of three modules that are part of the KATS (Kenya Authorized Travel Specialist) Program—covers the efforts being made by Kenya to promote sustainability.

So, if you’ve already completed the Kenya Authorized Travel Specialist (KATS) Program, as well as the 1st and 2nd elective modules, Safaris in Kenya and Beyond the Wilderness, respectively, here’s your opportunity to learn about Sustainable Kenya.
