We are a membership organization founded in 1996 as the Ecotourism Society of Kenya (ESOK). Our membership portfolio ranges from individual tourism professionals to tourism businesses.

We lead the Kenyan tourism industry in adopting voluntary tourism certification, participating in a homegrown tourism award, and community asset building through various tourism projects.
In 2006, we adopted the name Ecotourism Kenya (EK). EK works in partnership with many professionals both in the public and private sectors. We are part of the 8 private-sector associations that make up the Kenya Tourism Federation (KTF).
