The course takes place primarily in the Masai Mara National Reserve in southern Kenya. The Mara is situated in the northern portion of the Serengeti ecosystem and offers unparalleled opportunities for observation of African mammals. The vast open, rolling grasslands and riverine forests of the Mara are occupied by an extraordinary diversity of mammalian species, and these animals serve as subjects in the studies conducted by students enrolled in this program. We also visit other areas within the Great Rift Valley, which afford comparative insights into the behavioral ecology of mammals in different habitats and regions.
