Background Information

Most African countries are naturally rich in wildlife resources. Wildlife resources and habitats represent valuable natural assets that can be utilised for the benefit of the people of these countries as well as the international community. Losses of species and habitats pose considerable threats to these resources. To ensure that these natural assets are managed effectively and conserved, both inside and outside protected areas, African countries need a continuous supply of well-trained, skilled and motivated wildlife and tourism managers to both protect the resources and ensure that they are utilised appropriately and equitably.  

Bachelor in Wildlife Management provides students with training in aspects of wildlife management and is intended for persons who will independently plan and manage wildlife resources sustainably, undertake ecological monitoring, participate in research and consultancy, implement conservation policy and law enforcement, supervise uses of resources, maintain good relationship with stake holders and perform administrative functions.

 Degree course in Wildlife Tourism is geared toward enabling students to manage natural and cultural assets effectively and sustainably for tourism. It further imparts skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to carry out and manage tourism and conservation enterprises sustainably, participate in research, supervise uses of resources and tourism operations. In this way the tourism sector contributes to the overall goal of sustainable development for the people of Africa and the World.
