Launching our newest conservation-focused Asilia Adventure
Joining our extensive portfolio of our one-of-a-kind Asilia Adventures, we are thrilled to launch the debut of Conservation, Communities & Cameras: A Trip with a Difference (15 – 22 November 2021).
Hosting and guiding you on this rare journey through the Greater Masai Mara's Naboisho Conservancy in Kenya are George Benjamin, a British wildlife photographer and guide and Lara Jackson, a zoologist and conservation biologist. This perfect pair of passionate wildlife enthusiasts are long-time friends and collaborators of Asilia and will offer guests their expertise, guidance and endless enthusiasm for the natural world every step of the way.
"I'm so excited to be co-leading this one-of-a-kind trip, incorporating the best of East Africa's wildlife alongside experiencing its leading conservation programs," George shares. "Naboisho is my favourite place on Earth, offering stunning landscapes and incredible encounters; I truly couldn't think of a better place for this adventure."
This 6-night / 7-day adventure was born from our shared desire to add a deeper dimension to a classic photographic Asilia safari. We have crafted an engaging week combining the joy of safari and an education in photography, with a series of insightful, meaningful and hands-on Positive Impact experiences. To ensure the trip makes the promised difference, we have included a standalone US$3000 donation for the three main Positive Impact partners travellers will visit, alongside our usual donations through conservancy fees and the Asilia conservation fee.
Choosing Naboisho Camp as our base was an easy one. Not only does it offer an incredible collection of highly successful conservation and community projects on our doorstep, but also stellar wildlife experiences alongside an exceedingly comfortable haven to call home.
"We are so excited to share the magic of Naboisho with you, and to shine a light on the incredible conservation projects that are making a difference to both the wildlife and members of local communities in the Mara,” Lara says.
