Positive Impact

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

Asilia Approach

Our 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’.

Positive Impact at Olakira Camp

  • The 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.
     
  • We are dedicated supporter of the Rhino Repatriation Programme in the Serengeti and our driver/resident guides have been trained by the Frankfurt Zoological Society to identify the individual rhinos in the north and participate in the research by reporting and photographing/identifying any rhinos sighted in the area.
     
  • We are active supporter of the Serengeti Lion Project, donating funds and supporting researchers.
