That is how our Maasai students describe boarding hotel college Maasai Education Center. Where you discover your potential at the heart of hospitality. Building a bridge from poverty to a bright and shining future in the hospitality industry on your ancestor’s ground; The Magnificent Maasai Mara.
Maasai Education Center – or MEC for short, is established just within Maasailand – in Oloirien (next to the Olipikkidongoi school) – Lollgorian – Kilgoris district.
Our Hospitality programme is internationally recognized and our student’s scores every year are excellent. In 2022 Maasai Education Center was the best hotel school in Kenya! The programme offers an inspirational environment in which students develop a strong base of knowledge and vision related to the local hospitality and tourism sector.
Maasai Education Center offers a full package and captures, therefore, all divisions of the Hospitality & Tourism industry; this vision was the perfect match were managers of hotel lodges are looking for!

During the full-time, English-taught program, students learn to implement the multiple challenges business and organisations are facing, such as a quick change in demands of tourists in their expectations and experiences during their holidays, but also to implement the “old values of the traditions of the Maasai culture”. Weekly lectures of the Inner Wisdoms of the Maasai culture are given by a real Maasai “Olpiron”. In the end students are proud on their background again!
