Garonga Safari Co. is invested in reducing our carbon footprint and creating an eco friendly safari experience in South Africa. Through the various green actions listed below, we use our surrounding natural resources sustainably and with minimal wastage left behind. We continually seek innovative ways to be kinder to our environment and the wildlife we share it with.
South Africa is fortunate to enjoy year-round sunshine, which enables us to produce our own solar-generated electricity. About 66% of our energy needs are met by solar power, in fact Safari Camp and MCH are run completely on solar power, which lowers our carbon footprint.
We have replaced traditional electrical geysers with a heater pump system. Power is only used when the hot water tap is on, reducing our electrical power generation by about 80%.
Grey water is pumped into a feeder tank and through six filtration plants. Once filtered, the water is safe for drinking and is pumped into Safari Camp's waterhole for the animals.
