sustainability

Sustainable construction and community empowerment were the guiding principles behind the design of this luxury lodge.

Repurposed stones & materials from the demolition of the existing structure were used to create the dry-stack external walls and room floors, whilst reintroducing local build methods and honing community skills.

Decorative items and lighting fixtures have been manufactured using recycled materials by our social enterprise, Shanga.

The lodge will also support a number of conservation and community initiatives in the region through our philanthropic arm, Land & Life.
