Patrick Andayi - Director
Born and brought up near one of the few Tropical Rain forests in Kenya (Kakamega Forest), I developed conservation oriented mind from childhood and the urge to protect wildlife and nature has since then grown stronger.After my high school diploma, armed with my passion for conservation, I was admitted at the East Africa Premier College of Tourism and Wildlife Management (Kenya Utalii College) and graduated with Higher Diploma in Tourism and Management in 1993 and started working immediately as A SAFARI GUIDE.
Elinah Muhando Ouko - Director
Clinical Officer by profession with passion for ECO-FRIENDLY MANAGED activities. My studies in a Japanese University in an Eco-Friendly area (NARA PREFECTURE), I learned a lot on how the Japanese managed their nature and I couldn't wait to impact the same management styles to my Kenyan Society and the managers of our Natural Resources.
By hosting successfully, families and colleagues from Japan in my house thereafter, I was convinced that Eco-tours could sustain our fragile and often threatened natural resources. I therefore, encouraged my Kenyan friends and other community based organizations to engage in the same eco-friendly ventures and I am happy that it's proving a success. Through my initiative and others at HIROLA TOURS & SAFARIS, we have successfully managed Eco-Friendly and other tours that directly involve local communities for their benefit and our efforts have been appreciated and can clearly be visible in East Africa.
