Responsible tourism

Environment
Elephant Valley
Location within Chobe National Park and boasts well-earned 'eco' credentials.
Water: Operate on borehole water which comes from 110 metres below the ground. This water is used for everything in the lodge, cooking, gardens and rooms. It is safe to drink and use for washing etc. Do not use municipal water as the demand in the area is too high. Elephant Valley Lodge helps save municipal water by using borehole water around the camp.
Sewage: 20 000L biochemical septic tank which filters and purifies the water making it reusable for irrigation. This saves the use of the borehole water and is a very good form of recycling. The water bowsers are fitter with ball valves and mercury switches which turns the main bore hole pump off when the bowsers are full which eliminates water wastage
Power: Any room or area of the lodge is not being used all power to that section of the lodge is turned off. All rooms that are occupied are monitored for electrical usage, so when the guest is out of the room the power to the room is turned off. Only allow 2 hours a day of geyser usage a day per room. This heats the water sufficiently for the clients and saves power.
Litter: An out-sourced refuse removal company that removes all refuse daily; this refuse is taken to the new eco-friendly dump that has been built Kasane.

Kadizora:
Solar and gas only, water purification and waste management plant, separation of kitchen waste and removal from site. Kadizora Camp is a low-impact camp.

A lot of time and effort has gone into sourcing you the very best in eco friendly / responsible / sustainable properties while you are on holiday in Africa.

To protect the beautiful flora and fauna in Chobe National Park, Botswana has an Eco-Certification System.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

At Kadizora Camp you can visit the local Gunotsuga community to see how locals live. Learn about the customs and traditions within the local community. Has community upliftment projects.

We support social development. The lodges employ and uplift members of the local community.

Our team makes a conscious effort to set you up in our preferred eco-friendly lodges and hotels that are not only family-friendly, but also encourage their guests to partake in wildlife conservation programmes, sustainable development, community involvement and philanthropic efforts.

Traveling to Africa’s remote destinations with your family can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it’s important to keep in mind that most safaris take place in some of the least developed nations in the world. We support safari lodges that empower local communities through job creation and training programmes, philanthropic efforts and connect our guests with Africa’ diverse cultures.

In support of women empowerment in Africa through the means of travel, we have partnered with Project Brave Foundation, a non-profit organization focussed on uplifting marginalized women and children in South Africa. Our purpose is to connect our clients with Project Brave during their safari in South Africa – whether this means that they actively partake in a volunteering program or provide financial support, the choice is up to the individual.
