Positive Impact

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

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.

Positive impact at Ubuntu Camp

  • Ubuntu Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. The tented camp has no permanent structures and is broken down and moved three times 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.
     
  • Ubuntu Camp is fully supported by solar energy. Any emissions from our back-up fossil fuel consumption is offset through a local community forestation program.
     
  • We actively support the local community and annually donate funds to the local Osinoni School via the Kamitei Foundation. In 2012 this money was used to buy books and football kit.
     
  • We are actively supporting the Serengeti Wild Dog Conservation Project.
We Support...

CONSERVATION, COMMUNITY, ECO-TOURISM, COLLABORATION

 
Together with its sister Asilia camps, Ubuntu Camp contributes to the conservation of the invaluable Serengeti ecosystem. Supporting responsible tourism inside the park and working on tangible development projects with the communities around the park, Asilia is playing an important role in the conservation of the most famous wildlife park in the world.
