Your visit to Rubondo Island not only lets you experience the excitement of this unique island. It will also make a true impact, supporting research and conservation projects and contributing to a better future for local Tanzanians.
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. Our Rubondo Island Camp is a shining example of this approach.

Rubondo Island Camp is a very recent addition to our portfolio. Asilia’s aim is to structurally improve the prospects for the area.
Turning Rubondo Island into a profitable sustainable travel destination will have many local economic benefits.
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.
