Waste Reduction & Solar Energy

Kenya

The Masai Mara

Reduction of plastics: Reverse osmosis water filtration systems have replaced the need for plastic bottles of water. Branded metal drinking water bottles are given to each guest on arrival into camp to use throughout their stay. We strongly encourage you to pack your own reusable water bottle if you do not require one of ours.

We have replaced all plastic straws with paper or metal alternatives.

We have eliminated all one-time use plastic bathroom amenities and instead provide a range of lovely handmade products in metal dispensers, made by Cinnabar Green, a natural cosmetics company based in Kenya.

Solar Power: In a bid to further reduce our environmental impact we have installed solar power systems at Little Governors’ Camp and Governors’ Mugie House. Solar panels provide electricity to the properties, whilst water is heated by solar heaters.
