Positive Impact & Responsible Travel

We invite you to join us at Sayari Camp as we seek to make a positive and sustainable impact on the Northern Serengeti 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 Sayari Camp

Sayari Camp has played a pivotal role in the long-term conservation of the northwestern Serengeti. The arrival of the camp has secured the long term conservation of this area of the park and employment for the communities living on the boundary of the park.

Some of our actions at Sayari Camp include:
  • When we opened in 2005 we partnered with the Honeyguide Foundation to help local people grow vegetables which would then be bought by the camp, thus providing an alternative source of income. The project has gone from strength to strength and now has a permanent office, is working with more villages and is selling vegetables to Sayari and other safari camps.
     
  • We are proud to be involved in Pack for a Purpose. Donations brought by guests go to Machochwe Secondary School which we also support with an annual donation of US$ 1000.
     
  • We are dedicated supporter of the Rhino Conservation Programme in the Serengeti and our driver/resident guides have been trained to identify the individual rhinos in the north and participate in the research by reporting and photographing/identifying any rhinos sighted in the area.

CONSERVATION, COMMUNITY, ECO-TOURISM, COLLABORATION

Together with its sister Asilia camps, Sayari 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.
