Positive Impact & Responsible Travel

We invite you to join us at Naboisho Camp during your Kenyan safari as we seek to make a positive and sustainable impact through responsible tourism. Each guest bednight in the conservancy ensures the conservation of the nature, the wildlife and the equally important socio-cultural heritage of the Maasai culture.

Asilia Approach

Our goal as Asilia is to be a role model in sustainable tourism. At the heart of our organisation is the conviction that world-class travel can go hand in hand with improving livelihoods and conservation of nature. We strive to create a lasting, positive impact everywhere we operate. We believe in better.
 
Any sustainable contribution must ultimately begin with oneself. This means we buy locally where possible. 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 forest projects. 
 
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. The Mara Naboisho Conservancy is an example of this positive force made a reality.

Positive impact at Naboisho Camp

Naboisho Camp is situated within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, a ground-breaking co-operative development model. Asilia Africa is proud to be one of the driving forces behind the conservancy, the creation of which saw over 500 Masai landowners coming together to contribute their land to conservation. The conservancy fees provide the Maasai community with a sustainable livelihood and ensure the conservation of the wildlife in this vital corridor of the Masai Mara ecosystem. In addition to the conservancy’s role in conservation it also provides steady and sustainable employment which it is hoped will lead to an improved standard of living for the community as a whole.

Furthermore it offers additional benefits like health care, clean energy and empowerment of the local people through education and skills training.

Some of our other actions at Naboisho Camp include:
  • Kenya Wildlife Trust has formed the Mara Lion Project in order to establish lion numbers across this ecosystem in addition to identifying and mitigating the threats facing the population. The project has “science driving conservation” at its heart and its members are currently developing research questions to better understand the Mara lions.
     
  • The conservancy revolves around the Koiyaki Guiding School which annually trains over 20 local Maasai to become professional guides. All of Naboisho Camp’s guides are graduates of the Koiyaki Guiding School and we are proud to employ one of the first female graduates on the guiding team.
     
  • Naboisho Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. Sustainable operations include recycling rainwater and all waste products.
     
  • Naboisho and its guests support the local community, by donating books and equipment through the Pack for a Purpose initiative, for example the Mbitin Primary School. Please visit Pack for a Purpose if you would like to know more about this initiative and how you can contribute.
