Askaris (guards) are on duty night and day. They are from the local Pokot tribe and are armed with traditional spears, bows and arrows. To deter wild animals from the Centre, the night guards have a few small contained fires burning until dawn.
Security has never been a problem at the Centre; due to the fact that the Centre maintains excellent relations with the Pokot tribe and the police.
Though patchy, mobile phone network is available from two different providers: Safaricom and Airtel.
