The camp benefits from uninterrupted power, produced as sustainably
as possible. This entails using solar electrical panels to generate power, with a generator kicking in to give us a
back up supply; the generator can run between 3 and 8 hours a day, but large batteries store its charge when not needed or when the camp is empty. To
conserve energy we use the latest low-wattage LED bulbs throughout the
Our water is pumped on demand from a borehole linked to the camp by
underground pipes. Each tent’s hot tub is supplied with hot water from its own
300 litre solar heater, sited behind the tent and painted jungle green to ensure
it is as unobtrusive as it is effective. On the rare occasions when the sun
proves insufficient, electrical systems are used to generate additional
We dispose of spent ‘grey water’ via a specially-designed
Tanapa-approved French drainage system in which underground aggregates filter

break down solids.
Glass, tins and plastics are sorted and returned to Arusha for
recycling with the weekly delivery.
We buy fresh vegetables from local farmers and plan to create a
vegetable garden in the local village (we are not allowed to grow non-indigenous
plants in the park itself).
