GREEN TECHNOLOGY
Our Eco-conscious camp is highly focused on ensuring sustainable usage of resuorces

ECO-CONSCIOUS LIVING

Through the use of “green” technologies and methodologies we try to ensure that we are highly sustainable and aware of the impact and carbon footprint we have on our planet. We are always continually improving our efforts, here are some of the processes and technologies we use to achieve our goals

Responsible waste disposal

We have a bio pit for bio waste at the camp. The compost is used for the small vegetable garden. All other waste is transported back to Nairobi and disposed of via Taka Taka Solutions that responsibly sorts out 95% of the waste. 4 wetlands in the camp have a "pond-like" feature that filters all wastewater. Water is reused for washing. We have labeled bins in the kitchens that makes segregation of waste manageable.

Water Usage

We have our own well and water for showers / kitchen etc comes from our well. Water from our borehole is drawn by solar energy. The rainwater is collected from newly built staff quarters and we use it to irrigate the garden. All our toilets are water saving. Hot water circulation system- This ensures that hot water from the showers is almost instant hence reducing water wastage.

Wetlands

We have 5 wetlands in total which filter grey water from kitchen / guest and tour leader tents through a natural system with gravel / stones / soil and we re-use some of this water for our car wash & laundry.

Non-toxic Laundry Detergent

We use GROUNDED which is a non-toxic detergent made of natural, bio-degradable ingredients. This helps us ensure that we are always eco-conscious, even when washing and cleaning at all our camps.

Organic Vegetable Garden

We have our own little organic vegetable garden that is watered mainly by “harvested rain water”. Most of our fruit & vegetables come from Mlango Farm in Nairobi.

Solar Energy – Power Supply

Large Solar Station that powers Mara Bush Camp & Private Wing with majority of electricity – back up generator provided. Solar batteries do not use acid / distilled water, and they do not degenerate. Charcoal stores effective to store all fruit and veg instead of powering fridges. All our bulbs are LED’s – with low wattage thus energy saving.

Water Filtration System

We have a fantastic, state of the Art Water Filtration System from Finland that can filter 100 litres of water per minute! Although a substantial investment, it is important that our water filtration is state of the Art and offers safe and hygienic drinking water to both our guests and team members.

Camp Fires

Fire wood for the fire place is collected from dried trees. We do not cut trees. We have a special storage area to safely store all the wood we use for our fires. The fire wood is used for the central fire in the evenings where the guests can gather and share their stories and adventures.
