During the heat of the day, enjoy a refreshing swim or lounge poolside with an ice-cold drink as wildlife pass by.

Written by Danya Dhanak – Guest Writer I had the pleasure of visiting Asilia’s Naboisho Camp earlier this year for a few days. I tend to research my travel choices heavily – and I take credit for our group of seven people choosing to stay at Naboisho!

I wasn’t completely sure what to expect, as our group was mostly vegetarians in different age groups, each of us with idiosyncrasies when it comes to food.

This year, we’re celebrating our 15th birthday and commemorating 15 years of making a genuine difference in the crucial wilderness areas of East Africa. From our humble beginnings in 2004, we have embarked on an adventure to not only offer our guests a life-changing safari experience but to ensure that we have a positive impact on local communities and the environment. Over the years, in addition to meeting our many wonderful guests, we’ve been fortunate to work alongside and through a range of industry partners.
