Located in the middle of Tanzania, Ruaha National Park is the largest national park in Tanzania. The park covers 20,000 square kilometers and is part of a much more extensive ecosystem — the greater Rungwa-Kizigo- Muhesi ecosystem, which covers more than 45,000 square kilometers. Ruaha National Park has a high diversity of plants and animals including a large population of big cats, elephants, buffalos, antelopes and various endangered species, and is considered one of the biodiversity hotspots in the world. And yet the park is under-managed and under various threats. Your support will make a difference in creating better prospects for this important park and its neighboring communities.

Asilia Giving - Projects IN RUAHA
OTHER AREAS WE SUPPORT
We take an area approach towards improving livelihoods and protecting nature in some of the most unique corners of Africa. The areas we support include 6 uniique geographic regions across East Africa — the Greater Mara, the Serengeti, Tarangire, Rubondo Island, Matemwe, and Ruaha. In each of these areas, we engage with local communities, authorities and partner organizations to support projects and initiatives that address some of the key long-term challenges, priorities and measures for a given area.
Asilia believes that tourism should make a lasting positive impact on both nature and people. Proviging area support to local communities and the environment is an integral part of Asilia's identity and vision. Asilia maintains multi-year relationships with local communities, provides concrete educational support to 16 primary schools and offers funding to carnivore conservation and research throughout East Africa. Collaborating with partners on the ground, Asilia's goal is to make a real difference.
