Many of our partners are involved in conservation projects all over the world. Conservation fees are worked into the cost of your safari and get transferred to national parks and private or indigenous landowners. By paying these tariffs you directly finance wildlife conservation and give local communities a tangible incentive to help protect Africa’s magical ecosystems. Two examples of conservation projects are given below.
Honeyguide is a grass roots, non-profit, non-governmental organisation based in Tanzania dedicated to support communities and the conservation of wildlife and natural resources through long-term community partnerships. The African Honeyguide is a bird that actively guides humans (and honey badgers) to beehives; Asilia chose it as their symbol as it is a beautiful example of the symbiotic relationship between humans and wildlife and of successful partnerships in general.
Estonia is a conservation project that we have been working on for a number of years, so that people can photograph and see Estonian wildlife in its natural habitat. This will underpin provision of work for local communities and help to emphasise the value of preserving wildlife.
