Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Diverse Namibia holiday


The company that owns the camps takes pro-active steps to ensure the properties and tourism activities are run in an environmentally responsible manner. This is important in protecting the fragile ecosystems in which they operate and that wildlife and local people rely upon for their survival.

Water Conservation
The conservation of water is of critical importance in the environments they operate, where many local people do not have ready access to safe, clean drinking water and droughts are commonplace. They conserve water through regular maintenance to reduce leakages, fitting flow restrictors on shower heads and taps where possible, watering our gardens and grass roofs at cooler times of the day, planting only drought resistant native plants where landscaping is necessary, and implementing a guest towel re-use and water conservation programme.

Waste Water Treatment
All waste water is run into a sewage systems and biologically treated as it runs through natural sand filters. The water outlets are tested regularly. In this way they can be sure that they are not introducing harmful toxins into the protected environments in which they operate.

Waste Management
All of the waste produced is recycled, re-used or disposed of responsibly. In order to reduce waste, they avoid the purchase of glass bottled and tin canned goods where possible and offer our guests refillable steel water bottles in place of plastic water bottles.


Torra Conservancy, Damaraland. Wilderness Safaris and the Torra community in Damaraland, with the community acting as landlord, formed a partnership that resulted in the 352 000-hectare (869 000-acre) conservancy being proclaimed. Desert-adapted wildlife flourishes here and poaching, once rife, has stopped.
Community leaders are now the major decision makers in how the reserve is resourced and community members make up a good proportion of the ranger service that fights against poachers. Having this accountability ensures that the community understand the value of diversity and reap the rewards from the number of visitors who stay on the reserve.

At Ongava, the lodges work with and employ members of the local community, not just for employment in the lodges, but in the reserve to allow local communities members to understand their environment. Closed ecosystems like Ongava have boundaries that impose artificial limits on the available resources.

To this end, a dedicated environmental team - made up of members of the local community - manage the day-to-day running of the reserve, ensuring its long-term biological diversity and sustainability.

Cultural Sensitivity
They have in partnership with the local community developed a Responsible Code of Visitor Behaviour that is shared with guests before they go into the community for village visits so as to protect traditional cultures and minimize the impacts of tourism on living culture. They also provide guests with an Insider's Guide to Responsible Safaris which includes important cultural aspects.
