Our History

Tsavo Institute of Technology was founded in the year 2000 and was then known as Tsavo Park Hotel Institute. It started with 22 students who were taking Tourism and Hospitality courses only and making use of Tsavo Park Hotel as the practical training facility. The main courses offered were Hotel and Catering Management, Tour Guiding and Administration, Food Production; Food and Beverage Sales and Services; Front Office Operations; and Housekeeping Operations, all at Diploma level.

Many employees in tourism and hospitality industry had no formal training, the institute was started to fill in this gap. To satisfy the needs of the Tourism industry which is largely foreign; the institute opted for international curriculum and international examinations that would enable our graduates to work anywhere in the world. Today a good number of former students are working abroad.

In the year 2004, the institute got affiliated to Moi University. It started offering Moi University diploma courses in hospitality and tourism field namely, Hotel and Restaurant Management; Tour Guiding Management; and Tourism Management. This collaboration has enabled many of our graduates to join Moi University for further studies.

As the popularity of the institute grew, the demand for more courses came up. In year 2007, the institute's name was changed to Tsavo Institute of Technology and more courses were introduced. These included Business courses; Community Development courses; and Information Technology courses. We also started offering Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) examined course in specific areas.

Since inception Tsavo Institute has remained focused on providing students with practical/technical skills as dictated by market demands. This explains why our graduates are on very high demand.
