Sustainability

We attempt to be sustainable as much as possible.  We have implemented some use solar power, solar lights, energy saving bulbs and day-night switch lights.  We also have a compost heap and recycle as much as possible.  Basin & shower water is re-used to water plants.  We are preparing a garden patch to plant our own vegetables and herbs like we used to.

Community

We support regional police sport codes through donations.  We support, where possible, the regional health care by assisting with accident victims until medical assistance arrives. Nature conservation staff is assisted with maintenance of bore holes & water is supplied in emergencies.  Assistance is also provided with tracking of animals & anti- poaching. Vultures Namibia is sponsored during their annual vulture survey & ringing of chicks.

Staff

We have a very happy and friendly set of staff.  All staff members live on the premises with their respective families and have been here for several years.  Our staff & their families are given the opportunity to receive training by us in several fields like cooking, tourism, decorating, clothes making, knitting, human relations, etc.  We support their children in completing their education.
