Description of Tanzania safari in the Serengeti
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAsilia is committed to the long-term conservation of the environment and wildlife in Tanzania.
Staying in Asilia camps is only half the story when you join Asilia on safari. They believe that tourism should be used for good and, when practised responsibly, can be a driving force in both the conservation and development of East Africa. This belief guides everything they do — from where they source energy and materials used at camps, to how they hire and empower local staff and work alongside community and conservation programmes.
Asilia acknowledges that people and nature are inseparable partners, so they work closely with communities, authorities, NGOs and industry partners to achieve the best possible long-term outcomes for all concerned. With the help of guests, who contribute a levy of US$5 for each night that they stay with Asilia, they are able to make the most significant positive impact towards their goal of empowering these areas, including the communities and wildlife that call them home.
PeopleExamples of projects funded by Asilia are:
USAID Protect came on board in support of Asilia’s conservation efforts with a grant of US$200K to support the protection of vulnerable predators and
prey in the Eastern Serengeti through increased tourism and patrols. The USAID project brought in further sucess by engaging with communities with wildlife conservation by providing conservation orientated books for the school children. USAID also supported the children by supplying them with four full sets of football and netball jerseys, among other supplies.
Asilia’s community support took multiple forms in 2019/20, with several activities occurring with gratitude to guest donations through Empowers Africa. Donations helped support the completion of two classrooms at the Katemwa B
Primary School on Rubondo Island and a new musical instrument set for the students at Tungamalenga Primary School to continue studies of practical music. Further donations received supported the Olchaniomelok School in the
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, supporting students without school uniforms and other essential school supplies.
Asilia donated 302 desks in total to school communities in 2019/20. One hundred desks were allocated to two schools in Usangu’s Mapogolo and Mlungu Primary School. More than 75 uniforms and 300 exercise books
were donated, and 150 mattresses were bought through the USAID Protect project and donated to three boarding primary schools in Ngorongoro — Arash, Olalaa and Piyaya. We further supported nearby Arusha and Babati
communities by purchasing building materials for Mrisho Gambo Secondary School in Olasiti and Mamire Secondary School in Babati, where we supported
the expansion of a girl’s dormitory as requested by the Regional Commissioner for Manyara. The Regional Commissioner for Arusha was grateful for the support and acknowledged Asilia’s support to the communities through local media.
