Water and Energy are precious resources that are too often in short supply in arid Africa. The Foundation seeks to put the best environmental methods into practice in each of our safari camps, from solar-powered waterholes to basic energy conservation programmes. Outside the camps, we work with the surrounding communities to educate both elders and children how to conserve the land while implementing sustainable land-use practices.
