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 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.
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.

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 Maasai 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 Maasai 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.
Naboisho Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. Sustainable operations include recycling rainwater and all waste products.
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.
