AsiliaGiving is the philanthropic arm of Asilia Africa, one of East Africa’s leading travel companies with a mission to empower crucial wilderness areas in East Africa, benefitting both people and nature. By making bold, and often pioneering investments into ecologically and economically vulnerable areas, they aim to turn these regions into viable conservation economies, benefitting both the local communities as well as the environment.

By collaborating with and funding in-country NGOs that work on everything from vocational school scholarships, women’s income-generating projects, anti-poaching initiatives, wildlife conservation and land rehabilitation, AsiliaGiving is able to ensure measurable change.

By acknowledging that people and nature are inseparable partners, the organisation works closely with communities, authorities, NGOs and industry partners to achieve the best possible long-term outcomes for all concerned. With the help of guest donations and conservation fees Asilia is able to make a significant Positive Impact towards their goal to empower these areas and the communities and wildlife that call them home.
