Narok county will partner with the Indian government to market the Maasai Mara National Reserve as a tourist destination, Governor Samuel Tunai has said.
The Indian government will give students scholarships to study engineering, ICT and medicine.
On Tuesday, Indian High Commissioner Suchitra Durai paid Tunai a courtesy call at his office in Narok town.
Durai said India is considering shooting a music video or movie at the reserve as part of its marketing efforts.
Concessional training arrangements will be made for Narok students with Indian universities and the two sides will conduct student and cultural exchange programmes.
Tunai and Durai discussed increasing Indian investors interests in the county.
Narok held its inaugaural investment conference at the Mara last month and Durai was a guest.
Tunai praised the high commission for supporting the conference saying nearly half of the investors who signed agreements are from India.
He said one investor will break ground for a 50-bed hospital and medical training college on January 21.
Another will start building wheat and maize processing plants in February.
Durai and her family proceeded to the Mara for holiday.
