Positive Impact & Responsible Travel

We invite you to join us at Rekero Camp as we seek to make a positive and sustainable impact 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 Rekero Camp

There is little in this great wilderness that we have not come to know in the three generations of the Beaton family that have lived here. Reinforced by a two generation partnership with the Looseyia family we have learned to respect this land and within that have delivered one of Africa’s finest marriages of wildlife, culture and visitors.

The success of Rekero is partly due its strong relationship with its neighbours. This strong bond and our successes in poverty reduction has been recognised by some of the world’s leading conservationists. By using tourism to reduce poverty and introduce the benefits of conservation to communities has to be our proudest achievement.

Our actions:

• Rekero Camp (and the Beaton and Looseyia families) were pioneers in using tourism to
   reduce poverty by providing employment to local communities.

• The team behind Rekero Camp was instrumental in setting up the Koiyaki Guiding School,
   the aim being to provide local Maasai with employment opportunities within the tourism
   industry. Rekero continues to support the school, donating funds, sponsoring and employing
   students, and continuing their training following graduation.

• We actively fundraise and donate funds to Ngousani Primary School, and have provided
   bursaries for more than 20 children.

• Rekero Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. Sustainable operations include
   recycling rainwater and all waste products.
