About the college
Founded in Moshi municipality, Kilimanjaro region in 2008 by Master of the game, Edgardo Kabulwa Welelo, a freelance professional naturalist guide, writer, tourism educator, Entrepreneur and investor. The idea of establishing a college comes after the successful study tour (Educational trip) organized by him for his tour guide students to visit Udzungwa mountains National Park, located in south – central Tanzania. That expeditions took place on September 1st to September 3rd. So, the name of the college was taken from Udzungwa Mountains National Park after that expeditions to show the love of their country and its natural wonders. Also, that expeditions aimed at preserving permanent memory, of this beautiful and unique park as well as a part of marketing and selling this park and other Natural wonders of southern circuit for Tanzanians and overseas visitors.
On October 23rd 2008 Mr. Mzei O. Gabriel was the first student to have enrolled on a formal course and Udzungwa mountain college Trust was incorporated in Moshi, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania on 2nd September 2009 under the Trustees Incorporation Act 318.
