In the shadow of Mount Kenya, the Mpala reserve lies 50km north of the equator, stretching over 48,000 acres of semi-arid savanna, acacia bushland, wooded grassland, rocky escarpments and riverine habitats along the Ewaso Nyiro and Ewaso Narok rivers. The course is especially suited to those interested in savanna ecosystems and ecology. Subjects covered will include the diverse savanna vegetation, ornithology, vertebrates (small and large), reptiles, insects as well as river ecology and community conservation.
