The lodge was designed using sustainable local, natural materials where possible. This has, in turn, given support to the local communities and businesses, as supplies are obtained, as far as possible from local sources.
Staff are generally recruited locally and trained on site. Our water supply is gravity fed and solar power is used for lighting with power points limited to a central area allocated for recharging cameras and videos.
