Asilia’s Role in Protecting the Ruaha Eco-system
Bas Hochstenbach –Commercial Director and Co-Founder of Asilia Africa – explains why protecting the Ruaha eco-system is important to Asilia.
Ruaha is the next frontier. At over 20,000 km2 Ruaha is one of Africa’s largest National Parks. Definitely the least known, least explored and most exclusive of Africa’s top league of large, iconic parks. Crucial for the survival of the large cat species, with over 10% of the world’s lions in the larger eco-system, and globally important populations of all other large African predators.
The park needs a steady flow of sustainable tourism to support the crucial functions of park conservation and anti-poaching management, and to ensure that communities bordering the park build up a realistic existence co-existing in harmony with the park. With the strong base we’ve built up in the core areas of northern Tanzania and Kenya, Asilia is now sticking its neck out to be a driving force in saving crucial, pioneering habitats. Already committed to the plains of the Mara Naboisho Conservancy and the rainforests of Rubondo Island National Park, Asilia now commits to the prolific wildlife and the vast wilderness of Ruaha National Park.
