As lodge owners we are custodians of some of the last species in the wild. We take this seriously. So when we build, we ensure that the natural environment is our number one priority.


We partner with local Chiefs and Councils to help them create sustainable communities. We employ and train local villagers, and give back tangible assets and financial contributions to the communities.


The local conservancies are partners in all of our projects. We also work hand-in-hand with the World Wildlife Fund to develop conservancies. Our vision has always been to protect the environment and people.
