Sustainability is not just a word in our safaris, it our practice and action. We are playing our small part. To quote Dalai Lama,
“Because past environmental destruction was the result of ignorance, we can easily forgive it . Today we are better informed. Mother Earth has reached a stage where she is no longer accepting in silence. Therefore it is essential that we make an ethical examination of what we have inherited, what we are responsible for and what we will pass on to the next generation.”
We play our part by ensuring that we use Glass Water Bottles, we Plant Trees using Seed balls, We recycle and reuse by investing in fabric/canvas tote bags for in all our tours.
Sustainability is not just a word in our safaris, it our practice and action. We are playing our small part.
Glass Water Bottles – We use glass water bottles on all our tours. Though we advise every client on our safari to carry a reusable water bottle, we are aware that one can forget to pack one and so we give every participant on our safari a glass water bottle to keep refilling from our single water source and they get to keep the bottle.
Reusable Cloth Bag – Given that plastic bags are no longer allowed in Kenya and to support this important practice we offer all our guest a resuabe and washable cloth bag to carry snacks and your water bottle in. This bag is made by “Urembo Africa “ a social empowerment project for women working together for strength to learn , create, produce and provide for themselves and their families.
Seed Balls – A seed ball is simply that – a seed inside a ball of charcoal dust mixed with some nutritious binders. By using seed balls we are helping on reducing the cost of planting trees in Kenya. The bio char coating of the ball helps protect the seed within from predators such as birds, rodents, insects and extreme temperatures until the rains arrive. Once soaked the seed balls will help retain and prolong a moist environment around the seed to encourage germination Seed germination rates in the wild vary widely within species. Our choice of Acacia seeds is based on this. Some tree seeds require little more than a couple of rain showers within a week to germinate.
- These seeds are 100% Natural and GMO free sourced from Kenya forestry seed center
- They are coated with 100% natural salvaged charcoal dust and added nutritious organic binders promote successful germination.
- Recycled packaging – We support small businesses by sourcing our paper bags and packaging material locally and our printing is done by small start up business.
- Low carbon – The manufacturing of the seed balls uses low energy and fossil fuel free.
