Founded in 2004, Asilia was created when a few small but extremely highly regarded owner-run safari companies  including one of the oldest safari companies in the world - came together. Over the years we have carefully cultivated a succesful blend of professional business and unique bush expertise that delivers world-class safari experiences.

We are proud to have created the best operation in the Serengeti/Maasai Mara ecosystem. We have used this 'backbone' to pioneer responsible tourism to new areas: the wild southern area of Tarangire National Park, the remote Mara River region of Serengeti National Park, the newly formed Mara Naboisho Conservancy and Africa's largest island national park, Rubondo Island.

After more than a decade, Asilia remains passionately committed to being and doing better. Many of the original founders are still actively involved with Asilia, and they work to develop conservation areas, to train our young guides or to guide you.

Asilia Africa is committed to delivering the best wilderness experience in Africa. Our personal service and outstanding guiding offer safaris that make a lasting impression. Our 20 camps are positioned within iconic natural habitats in Kenya and Tanzania to give you an unparalleled and honest safari experience.

Asilia believes in safeguarding the prisitne habitats that support Africa's increasingly threatened wildlife. We aim to ensure the viability of these habitats - such as the vast Serengeti-Mara ecosystem - so that the wild animals that have always lived here survive and thrive. We make bold and often pioneering investments into ecologically fragile areas with a view to turning them into sustainable economies. We believe that people and nature are inseparable partners on this journey; our goal is to make a lasting difference everywhere we work. Your journey matters - both to us and to the unspoiled wilderness it helps to sustain.

Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism

Asilia believes that world class travel can go hand in hand with improving livelihoods and conservation of nature. Our luxury camps and lodges are in some of the most special places on earth. Places we want to safeguard for the future. We strive to transform whole areas, from crucial fragile natural habitats with often impoverished communities into lasting conservation economies: effectively protecting wildlife whilst providing opportunities for local people to prosper.

Any lasting positive impact must ultimately begin with oneself. At Asilia our camps, lodges and logistics answer to the highest standards of eco-tourism. This means we buy locally where possible. That we are a caring employer, offering our staff opportunities to grow. It means we reduce our footprint by limiting fossil fuel and use sustainable energy sources such as the sun, recycling water and reducing waste. The remainder of our carbon footprint is offset by supporting local (re-) forestation projects.
 
We are proud to be the first travel company in Africa to have been awarded the highest 5 star rating from the benchmark GIIRS-rating system and B-Corporation status. And yet, we believe that we do even more. By being creative and developing new models for travel we try to further increase benefits for nature and local people. We feel it as a great responsibility and honour: many of these areas run the risk of being exploited in unsustainable ways, but also stand the chance of becoming shining examples of travel done right.
