Sustainability

AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Sustainability is our philosophy

Gondwana Collection Namibia’s sustainable hospitality business strongly promotes nature conservation and social commitment.

Our commitment to nature conservation comes a long way

At the beginning of the 1990s the land bordering the Fish River Canyon was overgrazed and barren.

Gondwana has a green heart

During the past years our sustainability efforts at the lodges have been repeatedly acknowledged with the highest seal of quality awarded by the environmental initiative, Eco Awards Namibia.

Sparing use of precious water

Most of our lodges are equipped with wastewater recycling plants.

It’sUp2Us – Responsible Waste Management

A lot of effort goes into minimising non-recyclable materials at our lodges and implementing sustainable measures to ensure proper waste management.

Sustainable construction methods for our new lodges

Our latest lodges, The Desert Grace and Etosha King Nehale, were built using a unique environmentally-friendly construction method.

Staff development – Together we are strong

In 2017 the Gondwana Training Academy opened its doors.

Gondwana Care Trust – Sharing our hearts

Gondwana lodges are in close connection to their surrounding communities.

Self-sustaining supply of organic meat and fresh veggies

Guests at our lodges always marvel at the appetising buffets with large selections of fresh salads, dairy and meat products.

Small things also matter

Visiting researchers to the Gondwana Canyon Park along with the park management were recently treated to a very rare and wonderful sighting of the shy black-footed cat in the Gondwana Canyon Park.
