No. 3 A Light Camp Footprint

We pioneered environmentally-sensitive camp architecture to achieve what we call “purposeful luxury”

Why do we believe?

  • The unspoilt wilderness in which we operate is fragile – so our footprint has to be light and gentle, minimising any negative impacts that our operations might have on the environment.
  • We therefore take into account all elements of environmental impact , such as the visual and aural implications, effects on soil, the water table and vegetation and game movements.
  • We ask ourselves: can we place the camp in the best area without detracting from the wilderness quality of the area itself?

In order to host our guests, and thus ensure the sustainable protection of the wilderness areas that we operate in, we have built a selection of safari camps across Africa.

Our ideal result is a camp that blends into the natural features of the site. The goal is that if at some stage we have to move the camp, we can restore the site to its original natural state, leaving no sign of our presence.

As our camps are situated in pristine wilderness areas, we strive to build and manage camps in the most eco-friendly way possible, for the lowest carbon footprint possible.
