Roho ya Selous – Asilia’s newest impact investmentBy Asilia Africa
Roho ya Selous, in the UNESCO world heritage site of Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania, is the latest addition to the Asilia stable of ecotourism camps.
What is impact investing?
Impact investing is a very specific type of investing. It occurs across all types of asset classes. Its basic premise is to have a positive impact on society and the environment. It can also be thought of as sustainable philanthropy.
Operating 18 camps in East Africa, Asilia’s vision is to turn vulnerable ecosystems into viable conservation economies.
Walking the talk
A number of turnaround stories bear testament to Asilia’s vision.
The establishment of Sayari as a semi-permanent camp in an area that was overrun by bushmeat poachers, and as a result was devoid of tourists, was pivotal to the northern Serengeti’s turnaround.
Asilia’s model of tourism employs large numbers of rural dwellers where few other opportunities exist.

Situated on a hill overlooking a key waterway in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, Roho has eight private en suite tents, including a family tent. Activities in this diverse landscape of swamps, river and lakes are game drives, walking, boating and fishing on a catch-and-release basis.
