Positive impact & responsible travel

We invite you to join us at Olakira Camp as we seek to make a positive and sustainable impact through responsible tourism.

Asilia has implemented a US$5 per person per night conservation charge as we want to continue to expand on our conservation and development efforts in the areas that we are committed to. Especially in these times of lower demand for (East-)Africa, conservation efforts and crucial wildlife areas run the risk of collapsing under low occupancies and heavy discounts. Whilst we will continue to discount where necessary, we wish to safeguard our necessary investments in conservation and the management / development of the areas.
Positive ImpactOur goal is to be a role model in sustainable tourism as we seek to create lasting positive impacts on both the natural habitats and the lives of the people in the areas in which we have a presence.

At the heart of our organization is a sincere and strongly developed sustainability agenda as we have no doubt that conservation and community development is crucial for our long-term success.

Without compromising on quality or experience, our lodges and camps answer to the highest demands on eco-tourism.

We strongly believe and encourage the positive force that the combination of our guests, our travel industry partners and our own operations can make to the areas we operate in. Our approach to how we operate can be summarized as one of ‘Collaborative Conservation’.

Asilia is proud to be the first travel company in Africa to achieve the highest 5 star GIIRS rating and B-Corporation status. And yet, we trust we do even more. By being creative and developing new models for travel we try to further increase benefits for nature and local people.

Our approach in this area

ApproachThe dedicated staff of this small camp make every effort to minimise the environmental impact of offering a five-star safari in the world’s greatest wilderness area.

Olakira Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. The tented camp has no permanent structures and is broken down and moved twice a year leaving the precious site as we found it with the exception of a couple of footpaths which are quickly reclaimed by the resilient African bush.

In camp we strive to be carbon neutral but any emissions from our fossil fuel consumption are offset through a local community forestation program.

How we choose our projects

Bringing together a community that believes in better, we aim to involve people and institutions with a deeper interest in Africa and achieving a shared vision for the areas we operate in.
