Environmental Contribution

Tanda Tula is committed to having the smallest possible impact on our environment. We try to keep our camp as an integral part of nature by using eco-friendly and bio-degradable solutions.

  • We have implemented a bulk supply of clean mineral water, which has allowed us to move completely away from plastic bottles of mineral water (still and sparkling).
  • We produce our own sparkling water on site.
  • We use only recyclable glass bottles for our all of our drinking water.
  • We encourage guests to be aware of water consumption.
  • We recycle “grey water” and do regular ground water testing.
  • We use ecological detergents and cleaning agents.
  • We have energy efficient lighting throughout the lodge and staff quarters.
  • We use solar water heating where possible.
  • We recycle tins, paper, plastics, glass and kitchen oil.
  • We recycle biodegradable foodstuffs to local community farmers.
  • We purchase firewood harvested from alien species to avoid using wood found in the immediate environment.
  • We have double layer geyser insulation to reduce heat loss.
  • We minimise the number of game drive vehicles to reduce wilderness impact.
  • We have strict game drive protocols to minimise off-road driving in sensitive areas.
  • We rehabilitate the bush after all off road sightings.
  • We contribute to reserve management by assisting with erosion-site rehabilitation.
  • We shut down obsolete dams and rehabilitate those areas.
  • We have close working relationships with the researchers in the Greater Kruger National Park.
  • We have staff training programs for recycling and litter management and how this benefits the environment.
  • We monitor and constantly implement systems to reduce the use of plastic in our supply chain.
  • We buy locally where possible to minimise our supply chain carbon footprint.
